Journals Ranking

Most relevant journals related to computer security are listed in the below table along with six important criteria which have been gathered from Scopus (Journal Metrics), Journal Indicators (CWTS) and Google Scholar. These criteria are briefly described as follows:

1. Average CiteScore: The average of CiteScore values calculated over all the years, starting from 2011 up to now. CiteScore measures average citations received per document published in the serial.
2. Average SNIP: The average of SNIP values calculated over all the years, starting from 2011 up to now. SNIP measures actual citations received relative to citations expected for the serial’s subject field.
3. Average SJR: The average of SJR values calculated over all the years, starting from 2011 up to now. SJR measures weighted citations received by the serial. Citation weighting depends on subject field and prestige (SJR) of the citing serial.
4. Last JIF: The latest impact factor for each journal.
5. Last h5-index: The latest h5-index for each journal.
6. Last Quartile: The latest Quartile of each journal. Q1 = 99th – 75th CiteScore Percentile, which also includes the Top 10% titles. Q2 = 74th – 50th CiteScore Percentile. Q3 = 49th – 25th CiteScore Percentile. Q4 = 24th – 0 CiteScore Percentile. CiteScore Percentile indicates the relative standing of a serial title in its subject field.

Journals are sorted in descending order based on their Average CiteScore values.
Last Updated: 1 Sep. 2017

Yellow: If   1.805 < Average CiteScore <= 3.111
Orange: If   0.944 < Average CiteScore <= 1.805
