Impact Factor of Scopus indexed journals

There are more than 30,000 research journals in the Scopus list, but only around 10,000 research journals are assigned Impact Factor by Clarivate.

About Impact Factor: The impact factor or journal impact factor of an academic journal is a scientometric index calculated by Clarivate that reflects the yearly mean number of citations of articles published in the last two years in a given journal, as indexed by Clarivate’s Web of Science.

There are around 20,000 research journals (SSCI, SCIE, AHCI, ESCI) indexed by the Web of Science. Only the journals indexed in SSCI and SCIE are given impact factors.

Scopus gives other metrics to its journals: SJR, CiteScore, and SNIP.
