grafica aims at becoming an instrument of scientific communication about Graphic Design and aims at rising t he visibility of scientists work in the field of Graphic Design. For this reason, we establish as a reference to follow the criteria established by CENAI (19), ANECA (20) and LATINDEX (33) for journals, as well as IN-RECS and from the lists of quality scientific journals (Web of Science...). The mission is to generate a set of materials that, in scientific papers form, allow the design work get closer to the empirical field and farther away from the practices based on individual experiences and often poorly reproducible by others. Therefore, we aim at building a space, a metaphorical space, a graphic space about scientific evidence to enable progress towards intellectual and professional graphic design. We consider graphic design as an activity that is very present at society and is therefore an activity that quietly produces a strong influence on it. In this regard, we design products as a way of communication between people, between organizations and people, and that is why we consider graphic design as an integrated system of signs of intentional communication that requires special attention. Especially, considering that design is, while a carrier of communication strategies, who interacts with receptors. In this sense, the study of this mediated communication by the graphic elements is, in our opinion, absolutely necessary. And it is, especially for those academics and researchers specialised in issues close to graphic design. To them, grafica gives facilities for the diffusion of their scientific pieces of work. To all, grafica must provide new graphical knowledge and experience. 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.

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.

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.
