Scope/Description:

While many activities of geoscientists routinely require judgment, interpretation here specifically refers to conceptualization of the subsurface by an interpreter with incomplete information and a-priori knowledge. An interpreter evaluates alternative subsurface models consistent with available data and selects the most plausible geophysical and geologic scenarios by following scientific methods. Relevant contributions to Interpretation include, but are not limited to, submissions that advance geophysical or geologic concepts and principles of interpretation; correlation and calibration with engineering data; planning and evaluation of alternative completion strategies, case studies; algorithms for interpretation tools; and workflows, pitfalls, observations, insights, technical challenges, and tutorials. An Interpretation article is not required to contain an interpretation; it only has to help advance the practice of interpretation. Likewise an article may focus on interpretation of a data set if this provides significant new insight on the geology of an area or on the workflow used. Articles that describe interpretation methods and applications involving integration of multiple data sets to quantify as well as visualize subsurface structure are strongly encouraged. Interpretation is a dedicated forum for subsurface interpretation geoscientists. For papers focused on interpretation concepts, methodologies, tools, and workflows, the journal requires originality, completeness of descriptions, and demonstrations of viability. For papers that contain subsurface interpretations, the journal's novelty requirement can be satisfied by new applications of established methods.

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.

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

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.
