Margin The Journal of Applied Economic Research is a quarterly peerreviewed international journal published by NCAER in New Delhi in conjunction with SAGE International. It publishes papers that pay special attention to the economics of emerging economies but is open to highquality papers from all fields of applied economics. Empirical papers with significant policy implications are preferred particularly papers with evidencebased policy analysis that apply modern quantitative techniques to sound data sets. At the same time highquality review articles are not excluded. The journal appeals to a broad international audience and hence empirical papers that cover a range of countries or analyse topics that are relevant outside a single country are often chosen. NCAERs location the rising global interest in India and the growing size of Indias global presence mean that the journal inevitably carries some papers that explore the economics of the major economic demographic and social transformation that India is undergoing.

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.

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
