Since “Astronomical School’s Report” is currently not indexed in the “Journal Citation Reports”, we estimated the Impact Factor of the journal using the algorithm of Thomson Reuters applied in the “Journal Citation Reports”. For searching the references to “Astronomical School’s Report” we use the publications indexed in “Scopus” and “Web of Science” only, without self-citations.

Estimated value of the Impact Factor:
2017: 0.037
2016: 0.055
2014: 0.043

Algorithm of Impact Factor calculation. According to Thomson Reuters, the Impact Factor of a journal is the average number of citations received in current year per paper published in that journal during the two preceding years.

For example, the number of papers published in “Astronomical School’s Report” in 2012-2013 is 69. The number of citations of these papers in 2014 is 3. Here is the list of them:

  1. Berezhnoy A.A., Churyumov K.I., Kleshchenok V.V., et al. (2014). Properties of the lunar exosphere during the Perseid 2009 meteor shower. Planetary and Space Science, 96, 90–98
  2. Tugay A.V. X-ray galaxies in nearby filaments (2014). Proceedings of the International Astronomical Union, 9(Symposium S304), 168-170
  3. Komarova E.S., Mikhalev A.V. (2014). Effect of meteoric activity of Leonid stream at the emission of the upper Earth's atmosphere. Sovremennye problemy distantsionnogo zondirovaniya Zemli iz kosmosa, 11(2), pp. 277-287
Thus, Estimated Impact Factor (2014, without self-citations) = 3 / 69 = 0.043.
