The basic, translational and clinical content in Nature Reviews Gastroenterology & Hepatology is written by internationally renowned basic and clinical academics and researchers and targeted towards readers in the biological and medical sciences, from postgraduate level upwards. While intended to be read by practising doctors, researchers and academics within a specialty, we aim to make all our articles accessible to readers working in any biological or medical discipline. In-depth Reviews present authoritative, up-to-date information on a topic, placing it in the context of a field's history and development. Consensus Statements provide evidence-based or eminence-based recommendations and present a balanced review put together by a task force of experts. Topical discussion and opinions are proffered in Perspectives, Comment and News & Views articles, and in the Research Highlights section we filter primary research from a range of specialty and general medical and scientific journals. Subjects Covered: -Cancer -Diagnosis and screening -Endoscopy (including imaging) -Epidemiology -Gall bladder and biliary tract -Gastro-oesophageal reflux disease -Gastrointestinal bleeding -Genetics -Geriatric medicine -Gut microbiota -Hepatitis -Infection (including bacterial, viral, parasitic) -Inflammatory bowel disease -Large intestine (including anus) -Liver (including cirrhosis and fibrosis) -Motility (including irritable bowel syndrome) -Nutrition (including digestion, intolerance, allergies, therapy, obesity) -Pancreas -Paediatrics -Small intestine -Stomach -Surgery (including transplantation) -Therapy (including pharmacotherapy, radiotherapy, nutrition, alternative) -Translational medicine -Ulcers -Upper gastrointestinal tract (including mouth, oesophagus, ingestion)

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.
