Coverage2000-2020
Scope The International Journal of Molecular Sciences (ISSN 1422-0067; CODEN: IJMCFK; ISSN 1661-6596 for printed edition) provides an advanced forum for molecular studies in biology and chemistry, with a strong emphasis on molecular biology and molecular medicine. Our aim is to provide rigorous peer review and enable rapid publication of cutting-edge research to educate and inspire the scientific community worldwide. We encourage scientists to publish their experimental, theoretical, and computational results in as much detail as possible, in a regular section (https://www.mdpi.com/journal/ijms/sections) or in a Special Issue (https://www.mdpi.com/journal/ijms/special_issues). Therefore, there is no restriction on the length of the papers or the number of electronic multimedia and supplementary files. For all articles, the full experimental details must be provided so that the results can be reproduced. Electronic files regarding the full details of the experimental procedure, if unable to be published in a normal way, can be deposited as supplementary material (including animated pictures, videos, interactive Excel sheets, software executables and others). Manuscript categories: original scientific research articles, comprehensive reviews, communications, case reports, letters, commentaries, editorials, etc. In the International Journal of Molecular Sciences, molecules are the object of study; among those studies, we find: fundamental theoretical problems of broad interest in biology, chemistry and medicine; breakthrough experimental technical progress of broad interest in biology, chemistry and medicine; and application of the theories and novel technologies to specific experimental studies and calculations.

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.

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.
