Nature Protocols | Academic Accelerator - About the Journal

About

Nature Protocols aims to publish the protocols being used to answer outstanding biological and biomedical science research questions, including methods grounded in physics and chemistry that have a practical application to the study of biological problems. As the main audience for Nature Protocols articles is research scientists, we only publish protocols that have research applications; thus, we do not publish protocols where the main application is to make decisions that influence patient management and treatment. Specific techniques of interest include, but are not limited to, protocols relating to: Biochemistry; Cell biology; Cell culture; Chemical modification; Computational biology; Developmental biology; Epigenomics; Genetic analysis; Genetic modification; Genomics; Imaging; Immunology; Isolation, purification and separation; Lipidomics; Metabolomics; Microbiology; Model organisms; Nanotechnology; Neuroscience; Nucleic-acid based molecular biology; Pharmacology; Plant biology; Protein analysis; Proteomics; Spectroscopy; Structural biology; Synthetic chemistry; Tissue culture; Toxicology; Virology. Nature Protocols, published by the Nature Publishing Group, is an on-line scientific journal publishing methods in a recipe-style format. The journal was launched in June 2006 and the content includes both classical methods and cutting-edge techniques relevant to the study of biological problems. The content on this site is divided into Nature Protocols and the Protocol Exchange.

What is Impact Factor?

The impact factor (IF) is frequently used as an indicator of the importance of a journal to its field. It was first introduced by Eugene Garfield, the founder of the Institute for Scientific Information. Although IF is widely used by institutions and clinicians, people have widespread misconception regarding the method for calculating the journal IF, its significance and how it can be utilized. The IF of a journal is not associated to the factors like quality of peer review process and quality of content of the journal, but is a measure that reflects the average number of citations to articles published in journals, books, thesis, project reports, newspapers, conference/seminar proceedings, documents published in internet, notes, and any other approved documents.

Nature Protocols | Academic Accelerator - About the Impact Factor

Impact factor is commonly used to evaluate the relative importance of a journal within its field and to measure the frequency with which the “average article” in a journal has been cited in a particular time period. Journal which publishes more review articles will get highest IFs. Journals with higher IFs believed to be more important than those with lower ones. According to Eugene Garfield “impact simply reflects the ability of the journals and editors to attract the best paper available.” Journal which publishes more review articles will get maximum IFs. The Journal Impact of an academic journal is a scientometric Metric that reflects the yearly average number of citations that recent articles published in a given journal received. It is frequently used as a Metric for the relative importance of a journal within its field; journals with higher Journal Impact are often deemed to be more important than those with lower ones. The Nature Protocols Journal Impact IF measures the average number of citations received in a particular year (2020) by papers published in the Nature Protocols during the two preceding years (2018-2019). Note that 2020 Journal Impact are reported in 2021; they cannot be calculated until all of the 2020 publications have been processed by the indexing agency. In addition to the 2-year Journal Impact, the 3-year Journal Impact can provide further insights and factors into the impact of Nature Protocols.
