Nature Reviews Immunology



Immunology is a diverse and growing discipline that can be defined as the study of the tissues, cells and molecules involved in host defence mechanisms. Immunologists attempt to understand how the immune system develops, how the body defends itself against disease, and what happens when it all goes wrong. Nature Reviews Immunology provides in-depth coverage of all areas of immunology, from fundamental mechanisms to applied aspects. Subjects Covered: -Allergy and asthma -Autoimmunity -Antigen processing and presentation -Apoptosis and cell death -Chemokines and chemokine receptors -Cytokines and cytokine receptors -Development and function of cells of the immune system -Haematopoiesis -Infection and immunity -Immunotherapy -Innate immunity -Mucosal immunology and the microbiota -Regulation of the immune response -Signalling in the immune system -Transplantation -Tumour immunology and immunotherapy -Vaccine development

Impact Factor

The impact factor (IF) or journal impact factor (JIF) of an academic journal is a scientometric factor based on the yearly average number of citations on articles published by a particular journal in the last two years. In other words, the impact factor of 2021 is the average of the number of cited publications divided by the citable publications of a journal. A journal impact factor is frequently used as a proxy for the relative importance of a journal within its field. Normally, journals with higher impact factors are often deemed to have more influence than those with lower ones. However, the science community has also noted that review articles typically are more citable than research articles.Here you can check the journal performance trends based on last 20 years of data, also check the latest journal citation reports 2021. Also Check H-Index, SCImago journal rank and journal impact factor 2021.

Other Journal Impact Indicator

Any journal impact factor or scientometric indicator alone will not give you the full picture of a science journal. That’s why every year, scholars review current metrics to improve upon them and sometimes come up with new ones. There are also other factors to sider for example, H-Index, Self-Citation Ratio, SJR (SCImago Journal Rank Indicator) and SNIP (Source Normalized Impact per Paper). Researchers may also consider the practical aspect of a journal such as publication fees, acceptance rate, review speed.

Nature Reviews Immunology


The h-index is an author-level metric that attempts to measure both the productivity and citation impact of the publications of a scientist or scholar. The index is based on the set of the scientist's most cited papers and the number of citations that they have received in other publications


Nature Reviews Immunology

SCImago Journal Rank (SJR)

SCImago Journal Rank (SJR indicator) is a measure of scientific influence of scholarly journals that accounts for both the number of citations received by a journal and the importance or prestige of the journals where such citations come from.
