The 2020 CiteScore metrics have just been released, and we are glad to share good news that our CiteScore has grown from 0.5 to 0.9. This achievement would have been impossible without constant work of our Editorial team with our authors and reviewers. We are really grateful for your help and support.

CiteScore is journal evaluation metrics which was launched in December 2016 by Elsevier as an alternative to the generally used JCR impact factors. It is based on the citations recorded in the Scopus database for articles published in the last four years. CiteScore is a part of the “array of metrics” that aim to provide a more nuanced understanding of what impact means for research and journals.
