Interciencia is the monthly multidisciplinary publication of the INTERCIENCIA Association. It is dedicated to stimulate scientific research, its humanitarian use and the study of its social context, specially in Latin America and the Caribbean and to promote communication between the scientific and technological communities of the Americas. Interciencia has been published uninterruptedly since 1976. Its Founding Director, Marcel Roche (endocrinologist and sociologist of science) was editor until 2008, and thereafter Miguel Laufer (neurobiologist) has been in charge. It has been included since 1978 in the Science Citation Index and other international indexes, and since 2008 it maintains an open access electronic version with material from 2005 onwards. The priority areas of the journal, without exclusion of other areas, are Agronomy, Arid Lands, Food and Nutrition, Biotechnology, Ecology and Environment, Energy, Innovation and Technology Transfer, Marine Resources, Non-renewable Resources, Science Education, Science Policy, Study and Sociology of Science, and Tropical Forests. Interciencia publishes in Spanish, Portuguese and English research and review articles, communications and essays, all of which are subjected to peer review. Additionally, it includes non-refereed sections such as Editorial, Letters to the Editor, Open Town Hall, Book Reviews and Upcoming Events. All the material submitted to the journal for publication and accepted by the Editorial Committee in view of its quality and pertinence is subjected to review by peer specialists in the corresponding fields of knowledge. Neither the INTERCIENCIA Association, nor the journal or the institutions to which the authors belong carry responsibility for the contents. Signing authors are responsible for the material published under their names.

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.
