Scope/Description:

Frontiers in Ecology and Evolution publishes rigorously peerreviewed research across fundamental and applied sciences to provide ecological and evolutionary insights into our natural and anthropogenic world and how it should best be managed. Field Chief Editor Mark A. Elgar at the University of Melbourne is supported by an outstanding Editorial Board of international researchers. This multidisciplinary openaccess journal is at the forefront of disseminating and communicating scientific knowledge and impactful discoveries to researchers academics and the public worldwide.Eminent biologist and theist Theodosius Dobzhanskys astute observation that Nothing in biology makes sense except in the light of evolution has arguably even broader relevance now than when it was first penned in The American Biology Teacher in 1973. One could similarly argue that not much in evolution makes sense without recourse to ecological concepts understanding diversityfrom microbial adaptations to species assemblagesrequires insights from both ecological and evolutionary disciplines. Nowadays technological developments from other fields allow us to address unprecedented ecological and evolutionary questions of astonishing detail impressive breadth and compelling inference.The specialty sections of Frontiers in Ecology and Evolution will publish under a single platform contemporary rigorous research reviews opinions and commentaries that cover the spectrum of ecological and evolutionary inquiry both fundamental and applied. Articles are peerreviewed according to the Frontiers review guidelines which evaluate manuscripts on objective editorial criteria. Through this unique Frontiers platform for openaccess publishing and research networking Frontiers in Ecology and Evolution aims to provide colleagues and the broader community with ecological and evolutionary insights into our natural and anthropogenic world and how it might best be managed.

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.

H-Index

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
