Here in this post, apart from JBC Impact Factor, I have tried to compile all the necessary information a research scholar would seek before publishing an article in the journal.
About JBC Journal
The Journal of Biological Chemistry (JBC) is a weekly peer-reviewed scientific journal that was established in 1905.
Since 1925, it is published by the American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology. It covers research in the areas of biochemistry and molecular biology.
JBC 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
JBC Nature Impact Factor (2017-2022)
- JBC Impact Factor 2017 – 5.157
- JBC Impact Factor 2018 – 4.238
- JBC Impact Factor 2019 – 4.106
- JBC Impact Factor 2020 – 4.010
- JBC Impact Factor 2021 – 5.486 (updated 29 June 2022)
JBC Impact Factor 2022
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 JBC Journal is 528, which means among all the published articles in this journal, 528 of these publications have received at least 528 citations each.
JBC Journal Metrics
CiteScore (CS) of an academic journal is a measure reflecting the yearly average number of citations to recent articles published in that journal.
JBC 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.
