Polar Science is an international, peer-reviewed and quarterly journal. It is dedicated to provide original research articles for sciences related to the polar regions of the Earth and other planets. Polar Science has basically 12 disciplines listed below; they cover most aspects of space, earth, and life sciences. Those articles should attract interests of broad polar science communities, not limiting to interests of those who work under specific research subjects.

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.

Polar Science

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
