Conservation Letters is an online scientific journal that publishes empirical and theoretical research with immediate implications for the conservation of biological diversity worldwide. The journal's concise papers are renowned for their originality, timeliness, and influence on policy debates and management solutions. Since its founding in 2008, the reach and influence of Conservation Letters has grown tremendously. The journal enjoys a 7.126 impact factor and has quickly become a must-read source of cutting-edge, policy-relevant conservation research from the natural and social sciences. Many articles receive widespread media attention and manuscripts are published with a turnaround time that gives the journal a critical voice on hot-button topics of the day. Manuscript Submissions: The journal encourages interdisciplinary submissions, drawing upon the biological and social sciences, which are aimed at advancing pragmatic conservation goals. Manuscripts, published on a rapid communications schedule, are current and topical. Authors are asked to explain how their research will be applied either on-the-ground or in terms of policy development. Research articles should clearly articulate the significance of their findings for conservation policy and practice.

Impact Factor

The impact factor (IF) or journal impact factor (JIF) of an academic journal is a scientometric factor based on the yearly average number of citations on articles published by a particular journal in the last two years. In other words, the impact factor of 2020 is the average of the number of cited publications divided by the citable publications of a journal. A journal impact factor is frequently used as a proxy for the relative importance of a journal within its field. Normally, journals with higher impact factors are often deemed to have more influence than those with lower ones. However, the science community has also noted that review articles typically are more citable than research articles.

Other Journal Impact Indicator

Any journal impact factor or scientometric indicator alone will not give you the full picture of a science journal. That’s why every year, scholars review current metrics to improve upon them and sometimes come up with new ones. There are also other factors to sider for example, H-Index, Self-Citation Ratio, SJR (SCImago Journal Rank Indicator) and SNIP (Source Normalized Impact per Paper). Researchers may also consider the practical aspect of a journal such as publication fees, acceptance rate, review speed.

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

SCImago Journal Rank (SJR)

SCImago Journal Rank (SJR indicator) is a measure of scientific influence of scholarly journals that accounts for both the number of citations received by a journal and the importance or prestige of the journals where such citations come from.
