Zeus the most powerful of the Greek gods was enraged when Prometheus revealed to mankind the secret of making fire. The punishment of Prometheus the titan was to be chained to a rock where an eagle would devour his liver by day. By night his liver would regenerate in preparation for the following days pecking.Nor does Prometheus the journal expect much thanks for spreading knowledge aboutinnovation. Since its launch in 1983 Prometheus has pushed against the boundariessurrounding the understanding of innovation in its broadest sense. It has met some resistance. Prometheus is no stranger to controversy nor to the consequences of defying convention.

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.

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
