Journal of Orthoptera Research receives first Impact Factor

20 July 2023

The latest Journal Citation Reports™ - released by Clarivate in late June 2023 - features Journal of Orthoptera Research, the official journal of the Orthopterists’ Society amongst the scholarly titles making use of the Journal Impact Factor (JIF) citation metric by Web of Science (WoS).

The 2022 Journal Impact Factor score - meant to reflect the times 2022 publications indexed by WoS have cited research and review articles published in Journal of Orthoptera Research in 2020 and 2021 - currently stands at 0.8. For the time being, Clarivate postpones the assignment of quartiles to journals that have just received their first JIF.

“Thanks to the support of the Orthopterists community, who trusted us by submitting great manuscripts, and thanks to the efforts of our very dedicated editorial team and to the partnership with Pensoft / ARPHA Platform, JOR is now going to be better recognised beyond our community,”

says Editor-in-Chief Prof Tony Robillard, Muséum national d’Histoire naturelle (Paris, France).

Earlier in June, Journal of Orthoptera Research received its 2022 Scopus CiteScore, which increased to 1.3, thus placing the journal in Q3 in all three Scopus categories it is listed in: Insect Science; Animal Science and Zoology; and Ecology, Evolution, Behavior and Systematics.

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