JACS Impact Factor

Here in this post, apart from JACS Impact Factor, I have tried to compile all the necessary information a research scholar would seek before publishing an article in the journal.

About JACS Journal

The Journal of the American Chemical Society (JACS) is a weekly peer-reviewed scientific journal that was established in 1879 by the American Chemical Society. The journal has absorbed two other publications in its history, the Journal of Analytical and Applied Chemistry and the American Chemical Journal.

Impact Factor of JACS

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

JACS Impact Factor (2017-2022)

  • JACS Impact Factor 2017 – 14.357
  • JACS Impact Factor 2018 – 14.695
  • JACS Impact Factor 2019 – 14.612
  • JACS Impact Factor 2020 – 15.419
  • JACS Impact Factor 2021 – 16.383

JACS 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 JACS Journal is 644, which means among all the published articles in this journal, 644 of these publications have received at least 644 citations each.

JACS 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.
