Informations To Know

Quartile Each subject category of journals is divided into four quartiles: Q1, Q2, Q3, Q4.
Q1 is occupied by the top 25% of journals in the list; Q2 is occupied by journals in the 25 to 50% group; Q3 is occupied by journals in the 50 to 75% group and Q4 is occupied by journals in the 75 to 100% group.

H-Index is a metric that is commonly used to evaluate the productivity and impact of individual researchers, rather than journals. However, some researchers have proposed adapting the h-index to measure the impact and prestige of scientific journals.
The h-index for the journal is the highest number of articles that have received at least that number of citations.
For example, if a journal has published 100 articles, and the most highly cited article has been cited 50 times, the h-index for the journal would be 50.
