Scope

The Scientific Journal of King Faisal University (‘Journal’) seeks contributions in the fields of humanities and management (for the ‘Scientific Journal of King Faisal University: Humanities and Management Sciences’), and basic and applied sciences (for the ‘Scientific Journal of King Faisal University: Basic and Applied Sciences’). The Journal invites scholarly contributions that encourage readers to think outside of their comfort zone. It welcomes manuscripts driven by ‘neo-disciplinarity’, encouraging the uncomfortable, yet extraordinary, juxtapositions that arise when thoughts and knowledge from diverse fields collide. It regards neo-disciplinarity as ‘unity in diversity’, which fosters the improvement of academia. It does not accept contributions from modern-day scholars who passively conform to their academic descendants. The Journal denies manuscripts wherein authors reject innovation for the sake of conformism and resort to conventionality to evaluate consequences and conclusions. It declines submissions that apply over-used (and, thus, exhausted) theories and notions. It invites researchers who are enthusiastic to de-stabilise well-established outdated thoughts and promote historical cognitive discontinuity, foster interdisciplinary collaboration and endorse cultural and social exchange across academic domains.

SJR

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.

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.
