Scope

Citizen Science: Theory and Practice is an open-access, peer-reviewed journal sponsored by the Citizen Science Association. The journal seeks to advance the field of citizen science by providing a central space for scholarly exchanges about engaging the public in multiple scientific disciplines. Authors and readers include citizen science practitioners, researchers, evaluators, and funders, regardless of their specific disciplines.  CSTP is not intended to be a venue for reporting scientific outcomes of citizen science projects (e.g., trends in plant or animal distributions; discovery of supernovae). Scientific findings based on citizen science data should be submitted to appropriate scientific journals where the findings will help to advance varied scientific fields (we encourage inclusion of the keyword “citizen science” in such submissions to ensure that the field of citizen science receives recognition for its contributions.) Scientific outcomes of citizen science data can be reported in CSTP when knowing those outcomes helps to inform understanding of citizen science practice. 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.
