The Irish University Review was founded in 1970 at University College Dublin as a journal of Irish literary criticism. Since then it has become the leading global journal of Irish literary studies. It is affiliated to the International Association for the Study of Irish Literatures IASIL whose members receive the journal as a benefit of association membership. In its early years the journal published short literary works poetry short stories oneact plays as well as literary critical essays. Increasingly however the journal specialised in defining and expanding the scope of Irish literary studies. The journal has no prescriptive agenda about the subject or methodology of the literary criticism it publishes other than insisting upon the highest standards of academic scholarship through a rigorous screening and peer review process. It welcomes submissions on all aspects of Irish literature in the English language particularly submissions which expand the range of authors and texts to receive critical treatment and which challenge the prevailing trends and assumptions of the field.

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.
