How to publish in this journal


Protistology is one of the five "organism-oriented" journals for researchers of protistan material. The Journal publishes manuscripts on the whole spectrum of lower Eukaryote cells including protozoans, lower algae and lower fungi. Protistology publishes original papers (experimental and theoretical contributions), full-size reviews, short topical reviews (which are supposed to be somewhat "provocative" for setting up new hypotheses), rapid short communications, book reviews, symposia materials, historical materials, obituary notices on famous scientists, letters to the Editor, comments on and replies to published papers. Chronicles will present information about past and future scientific meetings, conferences, etc. THE PECULIARITIES OF THE JOURNAL - reviews, overviews and theoretical manuscripts on systematics, phylogeny, evolution and ecology of protists are favourably accepted - the manuscripts on multicellular organisms concerning their phylogenetic and taxonomic relationships with protists are also accepted - the size of manuscripts is usually not limited Join the conversation about this journal

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'. 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.

Total Documents

Evolution of the number of published documents. All types of documents are considered, including citable and non citable documents.

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.
