Top Journals for Software Engineering & Programming

The Ranking of Top Journals for Computer Science and Electronics was prepared by Guide2Research, one of the leading portals for computer science research providing trusted data on scientific contributions since 2014.

The position in the ranking is based on each journal’s JCR Impact Factor defined as a ratio between citations and recent citable items published. The impact factor of a journal is calculated by dividing the number of current year citations to the source items published in that journal during the previous two years.

The ranking represents JCR Impact Factor, SJR, and Scopus h-index values gathered in 2018. It was based on a detailed examination of more than 650 journals. This project is currently undergoing reconstruction and a new version of the ranking should be released soon.

Ranking is based on Impact Factor. Vanity press and poor-quality journals are not listed
