The Journal of Astronomical Telescopes, Instruments, and Systems (JATIS) publishes peer-reviewed papers reporting on original research in the development, testing, and application of telescopes, instrumentation, techniques, and systems for ground- and space-based astronomy. Topics include: - X-ray, gamma-ray, and gravitational-wave space telescopes and instrumentation - Ultraviolet, visible, and infrared space telescopes and instrumentation - Far-infrared, submillimeter, millimeter, and radio telescopes and instrumentation - Design of space observatories including space environments, orbit design, deployments, and communications - Telescope, instrumentation, and analysis techniques for high-contrast imaging of exoplanets - Ground-based telescopes and instrumentation - Pointing and control systems, including design, algorithms, and attitude control - Alignment, integration, and testing of telescopes and supporting instrumentation - Design of ground-based observatory enclosures and site testing - Adaptive optics and interferometry for optical/infrared astronomy - Very long baseline interferometry for radio telescopes - Detector systems for astronomical instrumentation - System engineering for large observatories - Imaging camera and spectrograph design - Integrated modeling of telescopes and instrumentation - Optical design and manufacturing techniques - Innovative technologies and materials - Data analysis techniques, data mining, and statistics - Observatory operations and science observation scheduling.

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.

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

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.
