IJES receives its first Impact Factor of 0.8

We are thrilled to announce a significant milestone for the International Journal of Environmental Science (IJES). It is with great pleasure that we share the news that IJES has received its first Impact Factor of 0.8, based on the Journal Citation Reports™ from Clarivate, 2022.

The Impact Factor of a journal is a measure of its influence and significance within the academic community, calculated by dividing the number of current year citations to the source items published in the journal during the previous two years. This recognition underscores the valuable contributions of IJES to its field and enhances its visibility among wider audiences.

This achievement marks an important step forward for IJES, and we are committed to further enhancing the quality and impact of the journal in the years to come. We extend our heartfelt gratitude to the editorial team, reviewers, authors, and readers who have made significant contributions to this success.

The Iranian Journal of Earth Sciences has been upgraded to Q2 based on the Scimago ranking 

We are pleased to announce that our journal has been upgraded to Q2 based on the latest evaluation of scientific journals on Scimago Journal Ranking. This significant achievement is a testament to our commitment to publishing high-quality academic research and adhering to the highest standards of academic publishing. We would like to express our sincere gratitude to all the authors, reviewers, and editors who have contributed to our journal’s success. This achievement would not have been possible without their valuable support and dedication. As a Q2 journal, we are committed to maintaining and improving the quality of our publications. We encourage researchers and scholars to submit their research papers to our journal and cite our articles in their own work. Our team will continue to work hard to provide a platform for high-quality academic research and foster a community of scholars.

Thank you for your continued support, and we look forward to your contribution to our journal.

Fractal analyses of fracture network geometry: an example from the Tassili-n-Ajjers area, SE Algeria

The objective of our study is to analyze the geometry of 2D fracture networks using fractal analysis methods. Three types of analyzes reflecting fractal behaviors, namely monofractal analysis, multifractal analysis and fractal anisotropy analysis are introduced as typical procedures to examine the density, the heterogeneity or the homogeneity, and the spatial-temporal directional relationship between the […]
