How to publish in this journal


Hystrix the Italian Journal of Mammalogy accepts papers on original research in basic and applied mammalogy on fossil and living mammals. The Journal is published both in paper and electronic "online first" format. Manuscripts can be published as full papers or short notes, as well as reviews on methods or theoretical issues related to mammals. Commentaries can also be occasionally accepted, under the approval by the Editor in Chief. Investigations of local or regional interest, new data about species distribution and range extensions or confirmatory research can be considered only when they have significant implications. Such studies should preferably be submitted as short notes. Manuscripts bearing only a local interest will not be accepted. Full papers have no limits in length as well as in figure and table number and are abstracted in English. Authors are encouraged to add supplemental material in form of colour figures, original datasets and/or computer program source code. Supplemental material and colour figures will appear only on the electronic edition. Short notes must be about 16000 characters long (including title, author names and affiliations, abstract and references), and do not include supplemental material. They are abstracted in English. Proceedings of symposia, meetings and/or workshops, and technical reports can be published as special supplements to regular issues, under the approval by the Editor in Chief and the Associate Editors. There are no page charges. Join the conversation about this journal

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'. SJR is a measure of scientific influence of journals that accounts for both the number of citations received by a journal and the importance or prestige of the journals where such citations come from It measures the scientific influence of the average article in a journal, it expresses how central to the global scientific discussion an average article of the journal is.

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.

Cites per Doc

Evolution of the number of total citation per document and external citation per document (i.e. journal self-citations removed) received by a journal's published documents during the three previous years. External citations are calculated by subtracting the number of self-citations from the total number of citations received by the journal’s documents.

Not every article in a journal is considered primary research and therefore "citable", this chart shows the ratio of a journal's articles including substantial research (research articles, conference papers and reviews) in three year windows vs. those documents other than research articles, reviews and conference papers.
