Journal Metrics

1. Google-based Impact Factor (2021): 1.11

The impact factor (IF) or Journal impact factor (JIF) normally referred to is the proprietary journal impact factor from Thomson Reuters calculated based on the Web of Science (WOS) and published in the Journal Citation Reports® (JCR). Currently, this journal hasn’t been indexed in Thomson Reuters JCR. Therefore, its official JCR®JIF is not yet available.

However, Google Scholar now provides an alternative Google-based impact factor. Google Scholar is the only openly available database suitable for journal metric calculation. It has a wide coverage and is a meaningful source. For this reason, Canadian Center of Science and Education is calculating its own Impact Factor by applying Thomson Reuters'(TR) algorithm based on Google Scholar's citation counts.

The 2021 Google-based impact factor of this journal would be calculated as follows:


Citations2020=2021 cites to articles published in 2020

Citations2019=2021 cites to articles published in 2019

Publications2020=number of articles published in 2020

Publications2019=number of articles published in 2019

2. h-index (December 2021): 29

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.

h-index is the largest number h such that h publications have at least h citations.

3. i10-index (December 2021): 87

i10-index is the number of publications with at least 10 citations.

4. h5-index (December 2021): N/A

h5-index is the h-index for articles published in the last 5 complete years. It is the largest number h such that h articles published in 2016-2020 have at least h citations each.

5. h5-median (December 2021): N/A

h5-median for a publication is the median number of citations for the articles that make up its h5-index.
