Science"s signal transduction knowledge environment, a Web site and online journal devoted to the topic of cell signaling, launched in September 1999 under the name and journal title Science"s STKE (ISSN: 1525-8882). For the first issue in January 2008, Science"s STKE underwent a name change to Science Signaling (ISSN: 1937-9145). In addition to a new name, the citation also changed such that the first issue published in January as Science Signaling became volume 1, issue 1.

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 signaling

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
