Here in this post, apart from Communication Biology Impact Factor, I have tried to compile all the necessary information a research scholar would seek before publishing an article in the journal.
About Communication Biology Journal
Communication Biology is a recently launched peer-reviewed journal from Nature Publishing Group.
Communication Biology publishes high-quality research across all areas of biology.
Communication Biology Impact Factor
Impact Factor (IF) or often called journal impact factor (JIF) is an index provided by an analytics company named Clarivate. The impact factor is calculated by dividing the number of times the articles are cited in the last two years by the total number of publications in those two years.
- Total Citations in 2020 and 2021 = 500
- Total Number of Publications in 2020 and 2021 = 100
- Impact Factor of the Journal in 2022 = 500/100 = 5
Communication Biology Impact Factor (2019-2022)
- Communication Biology Impact Factor 2019 – 3.896
- Communication Biology Impact Factor 2020 – 5.489
- Communication Biology Impact Factor 2021 – 6.268 (updated in June 2022)
Communication Biology Impact Factor 2022
Communication Biology H-index
The h index is a metric for evaluating the cumulative impact of an author’s scholarly output and performance; measures quantity with quality by comparing publications to citations.
The h index of Communication Biology Journal is 42, which means among all the published articles in this journal, 42 of these publications have received at least 42 citations each.
Communication Biology Journal Metrics
Communication Biology CiteScore
CiteScore (CS) of an academic journal is a measure reflecting the yearly average number of citations to recent articles published in that journal.

|Cites / Doc. (3 years)||2020||5.195|
|Cites / Doc. (3 years)||2021||6.256|
|Cites / Doc. (2 years)||2019||3.795|
|Cites / Doc. (2 years)||2020||5.195|
|Cites / Doc. (2 years)||2021||6.022|
Communication Biology SCImago Rank
The SCImago Journal Rank (SJR) indicator is a measure of the scientific influence of scholarly journals that accounts for both the number of citations received by a journal and the importance or prestige of the journals where the citations come from.
