Areas covered include the following:-Enzymology-Nucleic acids-Genetics-Chemical ecology-Carbohydrates-Primary and secondary metabolism-Analytical techniquesNPR articles are designed to give an interesting insight into the topic, focusing on the key developments that have shaped a field rather than giving a very comprehensive overview of all results.Authors are encouraged to include their own perspective on developments, trends and future directions.

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.

Natural Product Reports

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
