SJR: Scientific Journal Rankings


The quality of the journals is based on the Quartile scores of the journal. Quartile scores are used to rank journals (Q1 to Q4) based on the evaluation of the journal in relation to impact and quality relative to the ranking of the journals within a specific field or area of research.

  • Q1 denotes the top 25% of the Impact Factor (IF) distribution,
  • Q2 for middle-high position (between top 50% and top 25%),
  • Q3 middle-low position (top 75% to top 50%), and
  • Q4 the lowest position (bottom 25% of the IF distribution).

UKZN uses the most comprehensive journal ranking databases for the journal ranking classifications, including Scimago.
