The Japanese Journal of Applied Physics (JJAP) is an international journal for the advancement and dissemination of knowledge in all fields of applied physics. JJAP is a sister journal of the Applied Physics Express (APEX) and is published by IOP Publishing Ltd on behalf of the Japan Society of Applied Physics (JSAP). JJAP publishes articles that significantly contribute to the advancements in the applications of physical principles as well as in the understanding of physics in view of particular applications in mind. Subjects covered by JJAP include the following fields: Semiconductors, dielectrics, and organic materials Photonics, quantum electronics, optics, and spectroscopy Spintronics, superconductivity, and strongly correlated materials Device physics including quantum information processing Physics-based circuits and systems Nanoscale science and technology Crystal growth, surfaces, interfaces, thin films, and bulk materials Plasmas, applied atomic and molecular physics, and applied nuclear physics Device processing, fabrication and measurement technologies, and instrumentation Cross-disciplinary areas such as bioelectronics/photonics, biosensing, environmental/energy technologies, and MEMS

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.
