Impact Score* 4.7
Immunology, Veterinary medicine, Virology, Zoology and Ecology are the subjects of interest in Acta Tropica. Malaria, Antigen, Antibody, Immune system and Schistosomiasis are among the concentrations of Immunology that garnered much attention in it. Acta Tropica connects research in Schistosomiasis with the related topic of Helminthiasis.
The study on Veterinary medicine presented in it intersects with the topics under Epidemiology. Acta Tropica features Epidemiology research that overlaps with concepts in Environmental health. Acta Tropica holds forums on Virology that merges themes from other disciplines such as Plasmodium falciparum and Serology.
It focused on Ecology research but expanded to cover Vector (epidemiology).
The most cited papers investigate areas of study like Immunology, Veterinary medicine, Malaria, Ecology and Virology. The journal papers deal with Veterinary medicine in conjunction with Epidemiology and similar fields in Environmental health and Public health. While the journal papers focused on Ecology, they were also able to explore topics like Zoology and Vector (epidemiology).
Acta Tropica aims to foster the development of research in Parasite hosting, Environmental health, Vector (epidemiology), Zoology and Leishmania major. While work presented in the journal provided substantial information on Parasite hosting, it also covered topics in Atovaquone, Seroprevalence, Transcription (biology) and Polymerase chain reaction. Issues in Environmental health were discussed, taking into consideration concepts from other disciplines like Trypanosoma cruzi, Triatoma infestans, Zoonosis and Chagas disease.
The studies on Vector (epidemiology) discussed can also contribute to research in the domains of Triatoma dimidiata, Human resources, Public health, Health promotion and Disease. The main emphasis of it is the research on Zoology, emphasizing the topic of Flea. Leishmania major research featured in the journal incorporates concerns from various other topics such as Biochemistry, Leishmaniasis, Cysteine synthase, Active site and Leishmania braziliensis.
A key indicator for each journal is its effectiveness in reaching other researchers with the papers published at that venue.
The chart below presents the interquartile range (first quartile 25%, median 50% and third quartile 75%) of the number of citations of articles over time.
The top authors publishing in Acta Tropica (based on the number of publications) are:
The overall trend for top authors publishing in this journal is outlined below. The chart shows the number of publications at each edition of the journal for top authors.
Only papers with recognized affiliations are considered
The top affiliations publishing in Acta Tropica (based on the number of publications) are:
The overall trend for top affiliations publishing in this journal is outlined below. The chart shows the number of publications at each edition of the journal for top affiliations.
The publication chance index shows the ratio of articles published by the best research institutions in the journal edition to all articles published within that journal. The best research institutions were selected based on the largest number of articles published during all editions of the journal.
The chart below presents the percentage ratio of articles from top institutions (based on their ranking of total papers).Top affiliations were grouped by their rank into the following tiers: top 1-10, top 11-20, top 21-50, and top 51+. Only articles with a recognized affiliation are considered.
During the most recent 2022 edition, 8.33% of publications had an unrecognized affiliation. Out of the publications with recognized affiliations, 36.36% were posted by at least one author from the top 10 institutions publishing in the journal. Another 9.09% included authors affiliated with research institutions from the top 11-20 affiliations. Institutions from the 21-50 range included 36.36% of all publications and 18.18% were from other institutions.
A very common phenomenon observed among researchers publishing scientific articles is the intentional selection of journals they have already attended in the past. In particular, it is worth analyzing the case when the authors participate in the same journal from year to year.
The Returning Authors Index presented below illustrates the ratio of authors who participated in both a given as well as the previous edition of the journal in relation to all participants in a given year.
The graph below shows the Returning Institution Index, illustrating the ratio of institutions that participated in both a given and the previous edition of the conference in relation to all affiliations present in a given year.
Our experience to innovation index was created to show a cross-section of the experience level of authors publishing in a journal. The index includes the authors publishing at the last edition of a journal, grouped by total number of publications throughout their academic career (P) and the total number of citations of these publications ever received (C).
The group intervals were selected empirically to best show the diversity of the authors' experiences, their labels were selected as a convenience, not as judgment. The authors were divided into the following groups:
The chart below illustrates experience levels of first authors in cases of publications with multiple authors.
