Journal Impact Factor for Alpine Entomology

03 August 2023

The latest Journal Citation Reports™ - released by Clarivate in late June 2023 - features Alpine Entomology, the official journal of the Swiss Entomological Society - amongst the scholarly titles making use of the Journal Impact Factor (JIF) citation metric by Web of Science (WoS). The score - meant to reflect the times 2022 publications indexed by WoS have cited research and review articles published in Alpine Entomology in 2020 and 2021 - currently stands at 0.7.

Alpine Entomology is indexed in the WoS categories Entomology. For the time being, Clarivate postpones the assignment of quartiles to journals that have just received their first JIF.

We are extremely pleased with the evolution of Alpine Entomology and its essential role as a forum for the publication of scientific studies on insects and other arthropods from mountainous regions across the globe. The partnership with Pensoft has been of paramount importance, as it has greatly facilitated the article publication process and the visibility of Alpine Entomology,”

says Editor-in-Chief Dr Jessica Litman, Muséum d'histoire naturelle de Neuchâtel (Switzerland).

Earlier in June, Alpine Entomology received its 2022 Scopus CiteScore: 1.6. On Scopus, the journal is assigned to five categories: Insect Science; Animal Science and Zoology; Ecology; and Ecology, Evolution, Behavior and Systematics.

Unlike WoS, the Scopus metric counts citations received over the last four complete years to articles, reviews, conference papers, book chapters and data papers published in the same period. The list of journals in the Scopus database also differs from the ones indexed by WoS.
