Journal of Chromatography A publishes research papers and critical reviews on all aspects of fundamental and applied separation science. The scope includes chromatography and related techniques (e.g. field-flow fractionation), electromigration techniques, hyphenated and other multi-dimensional techniques, sample preparation, and detection methods such as mass spectrometry. Journal of Chromatography A accepts manuscripts describing fundamental research on all aspects of separation science theory and methodology, instrumental developments and analytical and preparative applications of general interest. In determining the suitability of submitted articles for publication, particular scrutiny will be placed on the degree of novelty and significance of the research and the extent to which it adds to existing knowledge in separation science. Papers reporting routine separation methods or straightforward extensions of these methods to new sample matrices will normally not be published. Review articles are invited by the editors. Potential authors may also propose a review article in writing to the editors or the editorial office by providing a brief outline of the subject matter and the proposed content. Review articles should be sufficiently broad in scope, but should be specific enough to permit discussion at an appropriate depth. Above all, reviews should be critical rather than enumerative and should provide the reader with expert opinion regarding the relative merits of the various published approaches to the topic under review.The same criteria are applied for acceptance of manuscripts, irrespective of whether these are submitted for regular issues, special issues, or symposium issues.

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.

Journal of Chromatography A


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


Journal of Chromatography A

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.
