The Science Partner Journal (SPJ) program is pleased to announce that the first journal it launched, Research, has received its inaugural Journal Impact Factor, 11.036, ranking it #10 among 73 journals in the Multidisciplinary category of the 2022 Journal Citation Reports (JCR) from Clarivate, 2022.
This milestone is the latest advancement for Research, which also holds a Journal Citation Indicator (JCI) of 1.58 and a CiteScore of 10.5, the latter ranking it 9th among 120 journals in the Multidisciplinary category from Scopus.
These landmarks recognize advancements in the development and reception of Research, and of the SPJ program more broadly.
“This is an opportunity to pause, reflect, and celebrate the hard work of all involved,” said Bill Moran, Publisher of the Science family of journals at the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS).
Launched in 2018 in partnership with the China Association for Science and Technology (CAST), Research publishes original multidisciplinary work reflecting innovative discoveries and important issues in the life and physical sciences and in engineering and applied science. Papers published since its launch have covered self-healing surface coating, reconfigurable acoustic metamaterial, and 3D printing of cellular structures, among others.
“We look forward to Research continuing to publish high-quality research and review articles that will further contribute to the advancement of science globally and expand on the journal’s mission to provide an international platform for academic exchange, collaboration, and technological advancements,” said Moran.
About Science Partner Journals
The Science Partner Journal (SPJ) program was launched in late 2017 by the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), the nonprofit publisher of the Science family of journals. The program features high-quality, Open Access publications produced in collaboration with international research institutions, foundations, funders, and societies. Through these collaborations, AAAS furthers its mission to communicate science broadly and for the benefit of all people by providing top-tier international research organizations with the technology, visibility, and publishing expertise that AAAS is uniquely positioned to offer as the world’s largest general science membership society.
Organizations participating in the SPJ program are editorially independent and responsible for the content published in each journal. To oversee the publication process, each organization provides professional editors committed to best practices in peer review and author service. It is the responsibility of the staff of each SPJ title to establish and execute all aspects of the peer review process, including oversight of editorial policy, selection of papers, and editing of content, following best practices advised by AAAS. AAAS is actively seeking new partners across scientific disciplines. For more information about the SPJ program, please visit spj.sciencemag.org.
