First Impact Factor for Neotropical Biology and Conservation

18 July 2023

The latest Journal Citation Reports™ - released by Clarivate in late June 2023 - features Neotropical Biology and Conservation amongst the scholarly titles making use of the Journal Impact Factor (JIF) citation metric by Web of Science (WoS).

The score - meant to reflect the times 2022 publications indexed by WoS have cited research and review articles published in Neotropical Biology and Conservation in 2020 and 2021 - currently stands at 0.7.

Neotropical Biology and Conservation is indexed in three WoS categories: Biodiversity conservation; Ecology; and Zoology. For the time being, Clarivate postpones the assignment of quartiles to journals that have just received their first JIF.

Neotropical Biology and Conservation was launched in 2006 by Brazilian researchers to promote research on Neotropical biodiversity. Since then, it has grown and evolved, especially after partnering with Pensoft in 2019. Receiving an Impact Factor was only possible due to the amazing collaboration with Pensoft's talented editorial team, the journal's currently diverse editorial board, and all the researchers who trusted us with their high-quality research or offered their valuable feedback as reviewers. With our common goal for the promotion of science, I am confident that new achievements will soon come,” says Editor-in-Chief Dr Piter Boll, Universidade do Vale do Rio dos Sinos (São Leopoldo, Brazil).

Earlier in June, Neotropical Biology and Conservation received its 2022 Scopus CiteScore, which increased to 1.6. On Scopus, the journal is indexed in five categories: Nature and Landscape Conservation, Insect Science, Animal Science and Zoology, Plant Science and Ecology, Evolution, Behavior and Systematics.

Unlike WoS, the Scopus metric counts citations received over the last four complete years to articles, reviews, conference papers, book chapters and data papers published in the same period. The list of journals in the Scopus database also differs from the ones indexed by WoS.
