Sociological Research Online has been published quarterly online since March 1996. Articles published in the journal are peer-reviewed by a distinguished Editorial Board and qualify for inclusion in the UK Research Assessment Exercise. Sociological Research Online was established under the Electronic Libraries Programme (eLib). When funding ceased in September 1998, Sociological Research Online introduced institutional subscriptions in order to be able to continue publishing high quality sociology. The journal is still available without charge to individuals accessing it from non-institutional networks.

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
