Impact Factor Ranking



The International Journal for Numerical Methods in Engineering publishes original papers describing significant, novel developments in numerical methods that are applicable to engineering problems. The Journal is known for welcoming contributions in a wide range of areas in computational engineering, including computational issues in model reduction, uncertainty quantification, verification and validation, inverse analysis and stochastic methods, optimisation, element technology, solution techniques and parallel computing, damage and fracture, mechanics at micro and nano-scales, low-speed fluid dynamics, fluid-structure interaction, electromagnetics, coupled diffusion phenomena, and error estimation and mesh generation. It is emphasized that this is by no means an exhaustive list, and particularly papers on multi-scale, multi-physics or multi-disciplinary problems, and on new, emerging topics are welcome. Manuscripts should have sufficient original numerical content, and generate new knowledge that is applicable to general classes of engineering problems, and not be limited to applications of existing methods, or propose incremental improvements to existing methods. The journal publishes full-length papers, which should not normally exceed 30 pages, and short communications, which can be at most 8 journal pages. Discussions of papers in print can be published, but two-part papers will not be considered for review.

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.
