About Journal

Published by the Canadian Center of Science and Education, Environment and Pollution (EP) is an international, double-blind peer-reviewed, open-access journal with both print and online versions. EP encourages high-quality submissions. In order to carry out our non-discrimination principles, we use a double-blind system of peer review. EP covers the entire spectrum of research including the following topics: environmental quality management, ecological effects of pollutants in air, water and soil environments, waste management, the sustainable use of environmental resources, the marine environment, environmental biotechnology, radioecology and climate change.

The journal is published in both printed and online versions, and accepts submissions online or by e-mail (ep@ccsenet.org).

JOURNAL METRICS

1. Google-based Impact Factor (2017): 6.11

The impact factor (IF) or Journal impact factor (JIF) normally referred to is the proprietary journal impact factor from Thomson Reuters calculated based on the Web of Science (WOS) and published in the Journal Citation Reports® (JCR). Currently, this journal hasn’t been indexed in Thomson Reuters JCR. Therefore, its official JCR®JIF is not yet available.

However, Google Scholar now provides an alternative Google-based impact factor. Google Scholar is the only openly available database suitable for journal metric calculation. It has a wide coverage and is a meaningful source. For this reason, Canadian Center of Science and Education is calculating its own Impact Factor by applying Thomson Reuters'(TR) algorithm based on Google Scholar's citation counts.

The 2017 Google-based impact factor of this journal would be calculated as follows:

IF2017=(Citations2016+Citations2015)/(Publications2016+Publications2015)=(125+101)/(16+21)=6.11

2. h-index (2017): 10

The h-index is an author-level metric that attempts to measure both the productivity and citation impact of the publications of a scientist or scholar.

h-index is the largest number h such that h publications have at least h citations.

The data was calculated based on Google Scholar Citations

3. i10-index (2017): 11

i10-index is the number of publications with at least 10 citations.

The data was calculated based on Google Scholar Citations

4. h5-index (2017): 9 

h5-index is the h-index for articles published in the last 5 complete years. It is the largest number h such that h articles published in 2012-2016 have at least h citations each.

The data was calculated based on Google Scholar Metrics

5. h5-median (2017): 15

h5-median for a publication is the median number of citations for the articles that make up its h5-index.

The data was calculated based on Google Scholar Metrics
