Impact Factor



The IMA Journal of Applied Mathematics is a direct successor of the Journal of the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications which was started in 1965. It is an interdisciplinary journal that publishes research on mathematics arising in the physical sciences and engineering as well as suitable articles in the life sciences, social sciences, and finance. Submissions should address interesting and challenging mathematical problems arising in applications. A good balance between the development of the application(s) and the analysis is expected. Papers that either use established methods to address solved problems or that present analysis in the absence of applications will not be considered. The journal welcomes submissions in many research areas. Examples are: continuum mechanics materials science and elasticity, including boundary layer theory, combustion, complex flows and soft matter, electrohydrodynamics and magnetohydrodynamics, geophysical flows, granular flows, interfacial and free surface flows, vortex dynamics; elasticity theory; linear and nonlinear wave propagation, nonlinear optics and photonics; inverse problems; applied dynamical systems and nonlinear systems; mathematical physics; stochastic differential equations and stochastic dynamics; network science; industrial applications.

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.
