SATS publishes accessible highquality academic articles in all traditions and fields of philosophy. As a broad philosophy journal it is our mission to promote philosophical dialogue across disciplinary boundaries within philosophy and with neighboring fields. To achieve this articles submitted to SATS shouldbe jargonfree and written in clear accessible proseaddress a broad audience of philosophers and philosophically oriented academicsseek to contextualise the philosophical questions addressedContemporary academic philosophy is characterised by increased specialisation and small technical and scholarly debates. Although such discussions are crucial for the development and growth of knowledge they require a counterbalance in the form of texts and contexts of broader scope. We believe that original research in philosophy can be written in a nontechnical lucid style and that philosophical discussions have much to gain from such work. To support a fruitful exchange of ideas we encourage authors to explicate technical issues and to clarify the relevance of their work to nonspecialists.

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
