About PLoS Computational Biology


PLoS Computational Biology is a journal covering the technologies/fields/categories related to Cellular and Molecular Neuroscience (Q1); Computational Theory and Mathematics (Q1); Ecology (Q1); Ecology, Evolution, Behavior and Systematics (Q1); Genetics (Q1); Modeling and Simulation (Q1); Molecular Biology (Q1). It is published by Public Library of Science. The overall rank of PLoS Computational Biology is 677. According to SCImago Journal Rank (SJR), this journal is ranked 2.949. SCImago Journal Rank is an indicator, which measures the scientific influence of journals. It considers the number of citations received by a journal and the importance of the journals from where these citations come. SJR acts as an alternative to the Journal Impact Factor (or an average number of citations received in last 2 years). This journal has an h-index of 148. The best quartile for this journal is Q1.

The ISSN of PLoS Computational Biology journal is 15537358, 1553734X. An International Standard Serial Number (ISSN) is a unique code of 8 digits. It is used for the recognition of journals, newspapers, periodicals, and magazines in all kind of forms, be it print-media or electronic. PLoS Computational Biology is cited by a total of 8070 articles during the last 3 years (Preceding 2018).

PLoS Computational Biology Impact Factor 2018-2019


The impact factor (IF) 2018 of PLoS Computational Biology is 4.38, which is computed in 2019 as per it's definition. PLoS Computational Biology IF is increased by a factor of 0.1 and approximate percentage change is 2.34% when compared to preceding year 2017, which shows a rising trend. The impact factor (IF), also denoted as Journal impact factor (JIF), of an academic journal is a measure of the yearly average number of citations to recent articles published in that journal.



Table Setting

PLoS Computational Biology Impact Factor 2019 Prediction


IF 2018 of PLoS Computational Biology is 4.38. If the same upward trend persists, impact factor of joule may rise in 2019 as well.

PLoS Computational Biology h-index


  Table Setting

PLoS Computational Biology has an h-index of 148. It means 148 articles of this journal have more than 148 number of citations. The h-index is a way of measuring the productivity and citation impact of the publications. The h-index is defined as the maximum value of h such that the given journal/author has published h papers that have each been cited at least h number of times.

PLoS Computational Biology ISSN


The ISSN of PLoS Computational Biology is 15537358, 1553734X. ISSN stands for International Standard Serial Number. An ISSN is a unique code of 8 digits. It is used for the recognition of journals, newspapers, periodicals, and magazines in all kind of forms, be it print-media or electronic.

Table Setting

PLoS Computational Biology Rank and SCImago Journal Rank (SJR)
