LIST OF PHYSICS JOURNALS IMPACT FACTORS 2013

PHYSICS JOURNALS CITATION REPORTS

Below are journals in general science and physics. Impact factors are to the right, with the year of the impact factor in parentheses. Valuable metric used in this report is Impact factor. Eigen factor is not used in this report.

This is an annual impact factor, based on 2012 citation reports. Impact factor reflecting the average number of  citations to recent articles published in the journal. It is a measure of the frequency with which the “average article” in a journal has been cited during 2012.


GENERAL SCIENCE JOURNALS IMPACT FACTORS

There are only a handful of general science journals. Britain and the United States founded Nature and Science, and their respective science academies issue their proceedings.
