Comparative Strategy draws on historical perspectives and strategic insights from leading international defense analysts and subjectmatter experts to provide a framework for considering the critical security issues of today and tomorrow. The journal strives to revitalize the thinking behind basic assumptions within Western foreign and defense policymaking and defenseplanning believing that the dynamic changes in the world since the collapse of the Soviet Union including Russian and Chinese expansionist military objectives and the rise of new potentially hostile and dangerous regional state and nonstate powers are transforming the strategic landscape.

Impact Factor

Impact factor (IF) is a scientometric factor based on the yearly average number of citations on articles published by a particular journal in the last two years. A journal impact factor is frequently used as a proxy for the relative importance of a journal within its field. Find out more: What is a good impact factor?

III. Other Science Influence Indicators

Any impact factor or scientometric indicator alone will not give you the full picture of a science journal. There are also other factors such as H-Index, Self-Citation Ratio, SJR, SNIP, etc. Researchers may also consider the practical aspect of a journal such as publication fees, acceptance rate, review speed.

Comparative Strategy

The h-index is an author-level metric that attempts to measure both the productivity and citation impact of the publications of a scientist or scholar. The index is based on the set of the scientist's most cited papers and the number of citations that they have received in other publications
