ABOUT THIS JOURNAL

Journal Metrics

Usage
  • 2,505Downloads 2017
    Springer measures the usage on the SpringerLink platform according to the COUNTER (Counting Online Usage of NeTworked Electronic Resources) standards.
  • 25 Usage Factor 2016/2017
    The Springer Journal Usage Factor 2016/17 was calculated as suggested by the COUNTER Code of Practice for Usage Factors. It is the median value of the number of downloads in 2016/17 for all articles published online in that particular journal during the same time period. The Usage Factor calculation is based on COUNTER-compliant usage data on the SpringerLink platform. (Counting Online Usage of NeTworked Electronic Resources) standards.

Impact
  • 0.313 Impact Factor 2017
    Journal Impact Factors are published each summer by Thomson Reuters via Journal Citation Reports ®. Impact Factors and ranking data are presented for the preceding calendar year.
  • 0.144Source Normalized Impact per Paper (SNIP) 2017
    Source Normalized Impact per Paper (SNIP) measures contextual citation impact by weighting citations based on the total number of citations in a subject field. The impact of a single citation is given higher value in subject areas where citations are less likely, and vice versa.
  • Q4Quartile: Genetics 2017
    The set of journals have been ranked according to their SJR and divided into four equal groups, four quartiles. Q1 (green) comprises the quarter of the journals with the highest values, Q2 (yellow) the second highest values, Q3 (orange) the third highest values and Q4 (red) the lowest values.
  • 0.134 SCImago Journal Rank (SJR) 2017
    SCImago Journal Rank (SJR) is a measure of scientific influence of scholarly journals that accounts for both the number of citations received by a journal and the importance or prestige of the journals where such citations come from.
  • 7H-Index 2017
    A journal has an H index of h if it published h papers each of which has been cited in other journals at least h times. Calculations are based on Scopus.

SCOPE

Molecular Genetics, Microbiology and Virology  is a journal that covers most topical theoretical and applied problems of molecular genetics of pro- and eukaryotic organisms, molecular microbiology and molecular virology. An important part the journal assigns to investigations of the genetic apparatus of microorganisms, searching for forms of genetic exchange, genetic mapping of pathogenic causative agents, to ascertainment of the structure and functions of extrachromosomal factors of heredity and migratory genetic elements, to theoretical studies into the mechanisms of genetic regulation. The journal publishes results of research on molecular and genetic bases of an eukaryotic cell, functioning of chromosomes and chromatin, nature of genetic changes in malignization and a set of hereditary diseases. On the pages of the journal there is covered the formulation of molecular bases of virology including issues of integration of viral and cellular genomes, and issues of persistence. The journal plans to put materials on genetic engineering, envisaging synthesis and isolation of genes from natural reservoirs, creation of plasmid- and virus-based vector, production of recombinant DNA molecules, the creation of Gene Banks for Microbes, animals, and human; and also on biotechnological production of hormones, components of antiviral vaccines, diagnostic and therapeutic preparations.

READERSHIP

The journal is intended for research workers mostly in infectious pathology, teachers of higher institutes and physicians interested in the problems of molecular genetics, microbiology and virology, proteomics of cancer.
