Ecological Informatics is devoted to the publication of high quality, peer-reviewed articles on all aspects of ecoinformatics, computational ecology and systems ecology, and special issues on topics of current interest. The scope of the journal includes ecogenomics, information processing and transfer in ecosystems, computational approaches to ecological scales and complexity, computer simulation and forecasting of ecosystem behaviour, computational ordination and clustering of ecological patterns at micro- and macroscales, management of ecological data. The nature of the journal is highly interdisciplinary publishing high quality papers in the frontier between genomics, biology, ecology, computer and information sciences.

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.

Ecological Informatics

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
