Great news about SCOPUS and JCR


Dear Authors, Reviewers, and Readers

It is with great pleasure that we inform you of updates on the indexes and metrics of our Ornamental Horticulture (OH) journal recently released by SCOPUS and the Incites Journal Citation Reports - JCR (Clarivate Analytics).

In June of this year, Scopus (Elsevier) published the CiteScore result and proves the growth and impact of the journal in the scientific community. “CiteScore 2022 (Scopus) = 1.7". These good indices have a direct impact on the Qualis/CAPES classification, especially in relation to the percentile (criteria established by the area of Agricultural Sciences I of CAPES). Considering the area of Agricultural and Biological Sciences – Horticulture, the percentile is 44th, which would place OH in Qualis B1.

And for the first time it received the prestigious impact factor of 0.7 in the Journal Citation Reports (JCR). This incredible achievement reflects the journal's high quality contributions and significant impact in the field of ornamental horticulture. This consolidates the journal as an important means of scientific dissemination.

Below are links to access the documents extracted from SCOPUS and Incites Journal Citation Reports - JCR (Clarivate Analytics) with OH information and metrics in the respective databases.



We invite the scientific community interested in publishing articles that meet the focus and scope related to the areas of floriculture, ornamental plants, urban forestry, landscaping and landscapes, green roofs, vertical garden, urban horticulture, and edible flowers to access the link for submission.
