We are delighted to bring you the latest impact factors* for our journals.

We would like to thank the journals’ editorial teams, the reviewers and the authors who have contributed to the success of these journals. We look forward to continuing to work with all of you, taking the journals to the next level of excellence.

The impact factor measures the average number of citations received in a particular year by papers published in the journal in the proceeding two years.

Highlights include:

  • 61 KeAi journalsreceived an Impact Factor (including 21 SCIE journals, 39 ESCI journals and 1 AHCI journal) compared with 38 titles last year. 22 journals received their first Impact Factor
  • 6 journals ranked #1 in corresponding categories (including 3 SCIE, 3ESCI) and 1 AHCI journal’s JCI index ranked #1
  • 26 journals (43%) in top 10%, 43 journals (70%) in Q1, 54 journals (89%) in Q1+Q2
  • 13 journals (33% of journals that have the data) have a positive annual growth
  • Outstanding New Journals:
    • 22 journals are newly accepted to ESCI, received their first IF this year
    • 8 newly accepted journals (36%) are in top 10%
    • 19 newly accepted journals (86%) are in Q1 + Q2
  • We have created influential journals in many different fields:
    • Covered 62 different WoS categories (24% of total 254 WoS categories)
    • Have journals in very small categories like MATERIALS SCIENCE, PAPER & WOOD and ENGINEERING, PETROLEUM with only 23 journals; ORNITHOLOGY with only 29 journals
