How to publish in this journal


The Journal of Machine Learning Research (JMLR) provides an international forum for the electronic and paper publication of high-quality scholarly articles in all areas of machine learning. All published papers are freely available online. JMLR has a commitment to rigorous yet rapid reviewing. JMLR seeks previously unpublished papers on machine learning that contain: new principled algorithms with sound empirical validation, and with justification of theoretical, psychological, or biological nature; experimental and/or theoretical studies yielding new insight into the design and behavior of learning in intelligent systems; accounts of applications of existing techniques that shed light on the strengths and weaknesses of the methods; formalization of new learning tasks (e.g., in the context of new applications) and of methods for assessing performance on those tasks; development of new analytical frameworks that advance theoretical studies of practical learning methods; computational models of data from natural learning systems at the behavioral or neural level; or extremely well-written surveys of existing work.

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.

% International Collaboration

International Collaboration accounts for the articles that have been produced by researchers from several countries. The chart shows the ratio of a journal's documents signed by researchers from more than one country; that is including more than one country address.

Citable documents 
Non-citable 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.
