Our culture is a scientific one defining what is natural and what is rational. Its values can be seen in what are sought out as facts and made as artefacts what are designed as processes and products and what are forged as weapons and filmed as wonders. In our daily experience power is exercised through expertise e.g. in science technology and medicine. Science as Culture explores how all these shape the values which contend for influence over the wider society.Science mediates our cultural experience. It increasingly defines what it is to be a person through genetics medicine and information technology. Its values get embodied and naturalized in concepts techniques research priorities gadgets and advertising. Many films artworks and novels express popular concerns about these developments.In a society where icons of progress are drawn from science technology and medicine they are either celebrated or demonised. Often their progress is feared as unnatural while their critics are labelled irrational. Public concerns are rebuffed by ostensibly valueneutral experts and positivist polemics.Yet the culture of science is open to study like any other culture. Cultural studies analyses the role of expertise throughout society. Many journals address the history philosophy and social studies of science its popularisation and the public understanding of society.

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.

Science as Culture

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
