IJDE Impact Factor gets increase to 2.056
The Impact Factor of the International Journal of Digital Earth (IJDE) has been increased for 2013.
According to the annual Journal Citation Report by Thomson Reuters on 30 July, the new IJDE Impact Factor (IF) for 2013 had broken 2.0, climbing to 2.056 (2-Year IF) and 2.242 (5-Year IF). Its rank rose to 10th and 8th accordingly in the list of 27 SCI-indexed international journals in the Remote Sensing category.
Inaugurated in March 2008, IJDE was accepted for coverage in SCI-Expanded within 18 months of its launching. Currently IJDE has been indexed and abstracted in 12 databases, and entered the Q2 area in the Remote Sensing Category based on its Impact Factor.
The growing prestige of IJDE is attributed to the high-quality and high-level of published papers and the accompanying high citations. The journal’s increasing growth is also the result of the rapid development of Digital Earth science and technology, the joint efforts of researchers, and the strong support from ISDE and the host institute RADI.
As a unique journal on Digital Earth, IJDE focuses on the theories, technologies, applications, and societal implications of Digital Earth and those visionary concepts that will enable a modeled virtual world. We expect more high-quality papers related to digital earth published on IJDE and look forward to your continuous contribution and support in the future.
