Neuron 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

Neuron Impact Factor (2017-2022)

  • Neuron Impact Factor 2017 – 14.319
  • Neuron Impact Factor 2018 – 14.403
  • Neuron Impact Factor 2019 – 14.415
  • Neuron Impact Factor 2020 – 17.173
  • Neuron Impact Factor 2021 – 18.688 (updated 29 June 2022)
