Scope Communicative & Integrative Biology is a multidisciplinary peer-reviewed journal. Serving as a platform for the most recent results in all aspects of biological sciences, Communcative & Integrative Biology focuses on exploring every level of biological organizations. From subcellular organelles to societies, the understanding of biological organisms as systems integrated via bio-communication. This encompasses animal, plant, and microbial communication, as well as signaling, cognition, consciousness, evolution, ecology, and behavioral ecology. Organismal behavior is based on integrated sensory systems. These provide organisms with positive and negative experiences and memories, allowing active and effective adaptation to an ever-changing environment. Intraorganismal communication and integrated signaling underly the development, polarity and morphogenesis of multicellular organisms. Moreover, stress adaptation, pathogenesis, parasitism, immunity, symbiosis, mutualism and other types of interorganismal interactions are also based on various modes of biological communication.

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.
