Subject coverage. The journal aims to combine theoretical and mathematical papers on inverse problems with numerical and practical approaches to their solution. The main audience is pure and applied mathematicians and physicists, but the journal will also have more specialized appeal to workers in geophysics, optics, radar, acoustics, communication theory, signal processing and medical imaging. All inverse problems, inverse methods and data inversion methods are within the scope of the journal, including applications to tomography, systems identification, nondestructive evaluation and nonlinear evolution equations.

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.

Inverse Problems

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
