Science Advances Impact Factor

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

Science Advances 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
