Scope/Description:

We aim for PARKS to be a rigorous challenging publication with high academic credibility and standing. But at the same time the journal is and should remain primarily a resource for people actively involved in establishing and managing protected areas under any management category or governance type. We aim for the majority of papers accepted to include practical management information. We also work hard to include authors who are involved in management but do not usually find the time to report the results of their research and experience to a wider audience. We welcome submissions from people whose written English is imperfect as long as they have interesting research to report backed up by firm evidence and are happy to work with authors to develop papers for the journal.PARKS is published with the aim of strengthening international collaboration in protected area development and management by promoting understanding of the values and benefits derived from protected areas to governments communities visitors business etc ensuring that protected areas fulfil their primary role in nature conservation while addressing critical issues such as ecologically sustainable development social justice and climate change adaptation and mitigation serving as a leading global forum for the exchange of information on issues relating to protected areas especially learning from case studies of applied ideas publishing articles reporting on recent applied research that is relevant to protected area management changing and improving protected area management policy environment and socioeconomic benefits through use of information provided in the journal and promoting IUCNs work on protected areas.

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.

H-Index

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
