Scope

The aim of npj Biofilms and Microbiomes is to serve as a comprehensive platform to promote biofilms and microbiomes research across a wide spectrum of scientific disciplines. The journal establishes a platform for cross-disciplinary discussions to promote the understanding of the biology, ecology and communal function of biofilms, populations and communities, as well as derived applications across the medical, environmental and engineering domains. Our scope covers the entirety of the field, from cell–cell communication and single cell interaction with the environment, all the way to the human, animal and plant microbiomes, as well as the microbiomes of the natural and built environments. We welcome work studying the virome, phageome, mycome and fungome. We publish applied science as well as theoretical work. Join the conversation about this journal
Quartiles

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.

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.

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.
