In this post, apart from Nature Sustainability Impact Factor, I have tried to compile all the necessary information a research scholar would seek before publishing an article in the journal.
About Nature Sustainability Journal
Nature Sustainability is a monthly peer-reviewed scientific journal published by Nature Portfolio. It was established in 2018. The editor-in-chief is Monica Contestabile.
Impact Factor of Nature Sustainability Journal
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

Nature Sustainability 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 Nature Sustainability Journal is 62, which means among all the published articles in this journal, 62 of these publications have received at least 62 citations each.

Nature Sustainability 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.

Nature Sustainability Publication Fee
Authors submitting primary research articles to Nature Sustainability have the option of publishing their research using either:
1 – Traditional subscription publishing model – an article is submitted and is assessed by our editors. If suitable it will be put through Peer Review, and if successful (subject to amendments), will be eligible for publication. Published articles are made available to institutions and individuals who subscribe to Nature Sustainability or who pay to read specific articles.
2 – Gold Open Access – same publishing process as above. The difference is that when an article is accepted for publication, the author/s or funder/s pay an Article Processing Charge (APC). The final version of the published article is then free to read for everyone. The APC to publish Gold Open Access in Nature Sustainability is €9,500.
Nature Sustainability Review Time
Nature Sustainability prioritizes rapid publication and because its an open access journal, the papers are immediately available upon publication to the research community and beyond.
|Submission to First Decision||11 days|
|Submission to first post-review decision||55 days|
|Submission to accept||183 days|
