Scope/Description:

Evidence of surgical interventions go back to prehistoric times. Since then the field of surgery has developed into a complex array of specialties and procedures particularly with the advent of microsurgery lasers and minimally invasive techniques. The advanced skills now required from surgeons has led to ever increasing specialization though these still share important fundamental principles.Frontiers in Surgery is the umbrella journal representing the publication interests of all surgical specialties. It is divided into several Specialty Sections listed below. All these sections have their own Specialty Chief Editor Editorial Board and homepage but all articles carry the citation Frontiers in Surgery.Frontiers in Surgery calls upon medical professionals and scientists from all surgical specialties to publish their experimental and clinical studies in this journal. By assembling all surgical specialties which nonetheless retain their independence under the common umbrella of Frontiers in Surgery a powerful publication venue is created. Since there is often overlap and common ground between the different surgical specialties assembly of all surgical disciplines into a single journal will foster a collaborative dialogue amongst the surgical community. This means that publications which are also of interest to other surgical specialties will reach a wider audience and have greater impact.The aim of this multidisciplinary journal is to create a discussion and knowledge platform of advances and research findings in surgical practice today to continuously improve clinical management of patients and foster innovation in this field.

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
