Scope/Description:

The scope of the Journal of Clinical Microbiology® (JCM) includes the laboratory diagnosis of human and animal infections, the role of the laboratory in managing infectious diseases (including antimicrobial and diagnostic test stewardship), and the role of the laboratory in elucidating the epidemiology of infections. The three principal attributes required of papers published in JCM are significance, relevance to the practice of clinical microbiology, and quality science. The significance of a paper depends on novelty, timeliness, and potential for impact on patient outcomes or clinical microbiology laboratory practice. These standards are applied to all papers, regardless of the specific technology studied.

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
