Current Biology Impact Factor

Here in this post, apart from Current 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 Current Biology Journal

Current Biology is a biweekly peer-reviewed scientific journal that covers all areas of biology, especially molecular biology, cell biology, genetics, neurobiology, ecology, and evolutionary biology. The journal includes research articles, various types of review articles, as well as an editorial magazine section.

Current 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.

For example,

  • Total Citations in 2020 and 2021 = 5000
  • Total Number of Publications in 2020 and 2021 = 500
  • Impact Factor of the Journal in 2022 = 500/100 = 10

Current Biology Impact Factor (2017-2022)

  • Current Biology Impact Factor 2017 – 9.251
  • Current Biology Impact Factor 2018 – 9.193
  • Current Biology Impact Factor 2019 – 9.601
  • Current Biology Impact Factor 2020 – 10.834
  • Current Biology Impact Factor 2021 – 10.9

Current 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.

Journal H Index Logo

The h index of Current Biology Journal is 331, which means among all the published articles in this journal, 331 of these publications have received at least 331 citations each.
