Top impact factor journals in computer science

Every year, Clarivate releases a Journal Citation Report (JCR). The JCR contains impact factors for its indexed journals (Web of Science journals). In this blog post, we list the top computer science journals having high impact factors.

The Journal “Nature Machine Intelligence” has the highest impact factor of 25.898 in the computer science field.

Journals having an impact factor of more than 6 are considered excellent in computer science.
