An understanding of the role of ribonucleic acid (RNA) within the cell has changed dramatically in recent years. Its status expanded with reports of catalytic RNA 20 years ago, of endogenous RNA interference 10 years later and noncoding RNAs very recently. Now there are a lot of data which suggest that RNA is not merely the intermediary between DNA and protein, but the functional end product. Diverse eukaryotic organisms harbor a class of noncoding, small RNAs which are thought to function as regulators of gene expression. Noncoding RNAs play a key role in many steps of epigenetic regulation.

SCImago SJR Rank

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.

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.

RNA Biology

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
