Scope Heterocyclic Communications (HC) is an open-access, peer-reviewed journal publishing preliminary communications, research articles, and reviews on significant developments in all phases of heterocyclic chemistry, including general synthesis, natural products, computational analysis, considerable biological activity and inorganic ring systems. Clear presentation of experimental and computational data is strongly emphasized. Heterocyclic chemistry is a rapidly growing field. By some estimates original research papers in heterocyclic chemistry have increased to more than 60% of the current organic chemistry literature published. This explosive growth is even greater when considering heterocyclic research published in materials science, physical, biophysical, analytical, bioorganic, pharmaceutical, medicinal and natural products journals. There is a need, therefore, for a journal dedicated explicitly to heterocyclic chemistry and the properties of heterocyclic compounds. Topics Development of novel synthetic methods Significant improvement of known synthetic methods Chemistry of natural products Superior biological activity of novel heterocyclic compounds, rational design and synthesis of new drug candidates targeting specific biological receptors Application of heterocyclic compounds as probes for biomolecules in biophysical and bioanalytical chemistry Development of new substrates and catalysts in materials chemistry.

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.

Cites per Doc

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.
