In June, the Scopus scientometric database published updated data for 2019, whereby Educational Studies Moscow is now indexed in the second quartile (Q2). Quartiles reflect the level of citation, that is, a measure of the impact factor of the journal—its relevance for the scientific community. There are four quartiles: from Q1 (highest) to Q4 (lowest).
To determine the quartile of a journal on the basis of the Scopus database, the SCIMagoJournalRank (SJR) is used—an indicator that takes into account, along with citations, the prestige of journals that cite a given journal, the proximity of their subject matter, and the likelihood of citations in a particular field. The SJR rating is publicly available. It is updated and published annually on the Scimago Journal & Country Rank online platform. At present, for Educational Studies Moscow, Scopus covers issues from 2012 to 2019. The SJR Index for 2019 is 0.481.
