Mires and Peat is a peer-reviewed internet journal focusing specifically on mires, peatlands and peat.As a truly “free-to-users” publication (i.e. NO CHARGES to authors OR readers), it is immediately accessible to readers and potential authors worldwide.It is published jointly by the International Peatland Society (IPS) and the International Mire Conservation Group (IMCG). Mires and Peat is indexed by Thomson Reuters Web of Science (2017 Impact Factors: 1.326 [two-year] and 1.638 [five-year]), Elsevier Scopus, EBSCO Environment Complete, CABI Abstracts, CSA Proquest (including their Aquatic Science and Fisheries Abstracts ASFA, Ecology, Entomology, Animal Behavior, Aqualine and Pollution databases) and Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ). Mires and Peat also participates in the CABI Full Text Repository, and subscribes to the Portico E-journal Preservation Service (LTPA). Mires and Peat publishes high-quality research papers on all aspects of peatland science, technology and wise use, including: ecology, hydrology, survey, inventory, classification, functions and values of mires and peatlands; scientific, economic and human aspects of the management of peatlands for agriculture, forestry, nature conservation, environmental protection, peat extraction, industrial development and other purposes; biological, physical and chemical characteristics of peat; and climate change and peatlands. Short communications and review articles on these and related topics will also be considered; and suggestions for special issues of the Journal based on the proceedings of conferences, seminars, symposia and workshops will be welcomed.The submission of material by authors and from countries whose work would otherwise be inaccessible to the international community is particularly encouraged.

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.

Mires and Peat


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.
