Scope/Description:

SoftwareX aims to acknowledge the impact of software on todays research practice and on new scientific discoveries in almost all research domains. SoftwareX also aims to stress the importance of the software developers who are in part responsible for this impact.To this end SoftwareX aims to support publication of research software in such a way thatThe software is given a stamp of scientific relevance and provided with a peerreviewed recognition of scientific impactThe software developers are given the credits they deserveThe software is citable allowing traditional metrics of scientific excellence to applyThe academic career paths of software developers are supported rather than hinderedThe software is publicly available for inspection validation and reuse.Above all SoftwareX aims to inform researchers about software applications tools and libraries with a proven potential to impact the process of scientific discovery in various domains. The journal is multidisciplinary and accepts submissions from within and across subject domains such as those represented within the broad thematic areas belowMathematical and Physical SciencesEnvironmental SciencesMedical and Biological SciencesHumanities Arts and Social Sciences.Originating from these broad thematic areas the journal also welcomes submissions of software that works in cross cutting thematic areas such as citizen science cybersecurity digital economy energy global resource stewardship health and wellbeing etcetera.SoftwareX specifically aims to accept submissions representing domainindependent software that may impact more than one research domain.

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.

H-Index

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
