How to publish in this journal


The Journal of Separation Science (JSS) is the most comprehensive source in separation science, since it covers all areas of chromatographic and electrophoretic separation methods in theory and practice, both in the analytical and in the preparative mode, solid phase extraction, sample preparation, and related techniques. Manuscripts on methodological or instrumental developments, including detection aspects, in particular mass spectrometry, as well as on innovative applications will also be published. Manuscripts on hyphenation, automation, and miniaturization are particularly welcome. Pre- and post-separation facets of a total analysis may be covered as well as the underlying logic of the development or application of a method. 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.

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.

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.
