The journal impact factor serves as an indicator of the relative importance and influence of a journal in its particular field. Impact factor information is released every year by Thomson Reuters Journal Citation Reports, which contains citation information for around 11,000 science and social science journals.
The latest impact factor (2016) for the ICES Journal of Marine Science (IJMS) is 2.76. This figure is calculated by adding together the number of citations made in 2016 to articles published in the IJMS during 2014 and 2015 and then dividing the result by the total number of articles published during those two years. The 2016 JiF is an all-time high for IJMS.
The IJMS is currently receiving about 550 submissions per year of which about 30% are accepted for publication.
