Note: The impact score shown here is equivalent to the average number of times documents published in a journal/conference in the past two years have been cited in the current year (i.e., Cites / Doc. (2 years)). It is based on Scopus data and can be a little higher or different compared to the impact factor (IF) produced by Journal Citation Report. Please refer to the Web of Science data source to check the exact journal impact factor ™ (Thomson Reuters) metric.

eLife is a non-profit organisation created by funders and led by researchers. Our mission is to accelerate discovery by operating a platform for research communication that encourages and recognises the most responsible behaviours.
We work across three major areas:
eLife is a journal covering the technologies/fields/categories related to Biochemistry, Genetics and Molecular Biology (miscellaneous) (Q1); Immunology and Microbiology (miscellaneous) (Q1); Medicine (miscellaneous) (Q1); Neuroscience (miscellaneous) (Q1). It is published by eLife Sciences Publications. The overall rank of eLife is 219. According to SCImago Journal Rank (SJR), this journal is ranked 5.879. 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 139. The best quartile for this journal is Q1.
The ISSN of eLife journal is 2050084X. 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. eLife is cited by a total of 34170 articles during the last 3 years (Preceding 2020).
The impact score (IS) 2020 of eLife is 7.45, which is computed in 2021 as per its definition. eLife IS is increased by a factor of 0.67 and approximate percentage change is 9.88% when compared to preceding year 2019, which shows a rising trend. The impact score (IS), also denoted as Journal impact score (JIS), of an academic journal is a measure of the yearly average number of citations to recent articles published in that journal. It is based on Scopus data.
IS 2020 of eLife is 7.45. If the same upward trend persists, impact score of joule may rise in 2021 as well.

If your research field is/are related to Biochemistry, Genetics and Molecular Biology (miscellaneous) (Q1); Immunology and Microbiology (miscellaneous) (Q1); Medicine (miscellaneous) (Q1); Neuroscience (miscellaneous) (Q1), then please visit the official website of this journal.
The acceptance rate of eLife was 15.4% in 2015, which is similar to the acceptance rates of Nature and Science - both below 10%
The acceptance rate/percentage of any academic journal/conference depends upon many parameters. Some of the critical parameters are listed below.
It is essential to understand that the acceptance rate/rejection rate of papers varies among journals. Some Journals considers all the manuscripts submissions as a basis of acceptance rate computation. On the other hand, few consider the only manuscripts sent for peer review or few even not bother about the accurate maintenance of total submissions. Hence, it can provide a rough estimation only.
The best way to find out the acceptance rate is to reach out to the associated editor or to check the official website of the Journal/Conference.
