Back to Basics

As of November 2018, JAFES is 9th in the Scimago Journal and Country rankings, among journals on endocrinology, diabetes, and metabolism in the Asiatic region; and is 188th in the world (out of 232).

Over the last 3 years that we have been indexed in Scopus, we have been able to muster a Scimago Journal Rank (SJR) of 0.108 (in 2015) to 0.136 (in 2017). The SJR is a “prestige indicator” which measures the scientific influence a published article may have to global scientific discussions. Our citation and document index ranges between 0.167 and 0.179. This indicator counts the number of citations received by our articles over the total number of articles we published. This is roughly equivalent to the Journal Impact Factor^TM metric of Thomson and Reuters.
