New Scopus CiteScore and quartile for the Journal of Orthoptera Research

26 June 2024

The latest Scopus CiteScore for the Journal of Orthoptera Research, released in early June 2024,  stands at 1.9. The score marks a notable increase from last year’s 1.3, reports ARPHA Platform’s indexing team.

The new score also sends the journal to Q2 in all Scopus categories where the journal is listed: Insect Science, Animal Science and Zoology, and Ecology, Evolution, Behavior and Systematics.

Traditionally announced in June, the Scopus CiteScore is a dynamic academic metric that reflects the citation rate of the content published in a given journal over a past period. A Scopus CiteScore is estimated for each journal indexed in Scopus, the largest abstract and citation database of peer-reviewed literature.

To estimate the CiteScore, Scopus counts the citations of five types of peer-reviewed publications (research/review/conference/data papers and book chapters) received in the last four complete years, before dividing the number by the number of the same document types published during this period. Only citations made by content published in other journals indexed in Scopus are counted towards the CiteScore.

So, the latest CiteScore (titled “CiteScore 2023” as 2023 is the last complete year) for JOR is the result of dividing the number of citations from 2020 to 2023 by the number of papers published in the journal in the same period.

In addition to the annually updated CiteScore, Scopus provides another even more dynamic metric, the CiteScore Tracker. While it uses the same formula as the CiteScore, the CiteScore Tracker is updated at the beginning of each month, as it counts citations and publications from the current year. The current CiteScore Tracker for the Journal of Orthoptera Research uses data from Scopus from 2021 to the last complete month of 2024.

The latest Scopus CiteScore and the CiteScore Tracker are automatically displayed on the journal website’s homepage. They also appear in the journal’s newsletter.
