Scope Pakistan Journal of Biological Sciences is a peer-reviewed scientific journal seeks to promote and disseminate the knowledge by publishing original research findings, review articles and short communications in all areas of biological sciences, including cell biology, developmental biology, structural biology, microbiology, molecular biology & genetics, biochemistry, biotechnology, biodiversity, ecology, marine biology, plant biology, and bioinformatics. The Journal publishes papers based on original research that are judged, after two international reviews, to make a substantial contribution to the understanding of any area of biological sciences. It aims at rapid publication of high quality research results while maintaining rigorous peer review process. (source)

The set of journals have been ranked according to their SJR and divided into four equal groups, four quartiles. Q1 (green) comprises the quarter of the journals with the highest values, Q2 (yellow) the second highest values, Q3 (orange) the third highest values and Q4 (red) the lowest values.

The SJR is a size-independent prestige indicator that ranks journals by their 'average prestige per article'. It is based on the idea that 'all citations are not created equal'.

Citations per document

This indicator counts the number of citations received by documents from a journal and divides them by the total number of documents published in that journal. The chart shows the evolution of the average number of times documents published in a journal in the past two, three and four years have been cited in the current year. The two years line is equivalent to journal impact factor ™ (Thomson Reuters) metric.
