Scope/Description:

The unprecedented modernization and expansion of rail transportation system will require substantial new efforts in scientific research for fielddeployable technologies. The International Journal of Rail Transportation IJRT aims to provide an open forum for scientists researchers and engineers in the world to promote the exchange of the latest scientific and technological innovations in rail transportation and to advance the stateoftheart engineering and practices for various types of rail based transportation systems.IJRT covers all main areas of rail vehicle infrastructure traction power operation communication and environment. The journal publishes original significant articles on topics in dynamics and mechanics of rail vehicle track and bridge system planning and design construction operation inspection and maintenance of rail infrastructure train operation control scheduling and management rail electrification signalling and communication and environmental impacts such as vibration and noise.The editorial policy of the new journal will abide by the highest level of standards in research rigor ethics and academic freedom. All published articles in IJRT have undergone rigorous peer review based on initial editor screening and anonymous refereeing by independent experts.There are no page charges and colour figures are included in the online edition free of charge.

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
