Impact Score* 5.8
The aim of the journal is to expand the discussion of research in Mineralogy, Paleontology, Radiocarbon dating, Quartz and Geochemistry. The work on Mineralogy tackled in it brings together disciplines like Luminescence, Thermoluminescence, K feldspar, Feldspar and Equivalent dose. Quaternary Geochronology focuses on Paleontology research which is adjacent to topics in Cave.
In addition to Radiocarbon dating research, Quaternary Geochronology aims to explore topics under Oceanography, Holocene and Chronology. Topics in Quartz explored in Quaternary Geochronology were investigated in conjunction with research in Sedimentary rock, Sediment and Thermoluminescence dating. Deposition (geology) is a key component of Sediment research discussed in it.
Geochemistry research presented in it encompasses a variety of subjects, including Sedimentary depositional environment and Geomorphology. It investigates Geomorphology research which frequently intersects with Cosmogenic nuclide. It explores issues in Cosmogenic nuclide which can be linked to other research areas like Erosion and Nuclide.
The most cited papers cover a variety of subjects, including Mineralogy, Optically stimulated luminescence, Geomorphology, Quartz and Radiocarbon dating. While work presented in the most cited articles provide substantial information on Mineralogy, it also covers topics in Fluvial, Luminescence, Sediment, Feldspar and Geochronology. The works on Geomorphology tackled in the most cited articles bring together disciplines like Geochemistry, Chronology and Cosmogenic nuclide.
Quaternary Geochronology investigates areas of study like Geochemistry, Quartz, Paleontology, Bayesian probability and Radiocarbon dating. Issues in Geochemistry were discussed, taking into consideration concepts from other disciplines like Impact crater, Loess and Thermoluminescence dating. Optically stimulated luminescence studies in the realm of Quartz interact with fields like Potential mechanism.
Pleistocene, Cenozoic, Carbonate rock and Continental collision are all disciplines of Paleontology that connect with topics in Growth curve (biology). It holds forums on Bayesian probability that merges themes from other disciplines such as Chronology, Statistical model and Holocene. The research on Radiocarbon dating featured in Quaternary Geochronology combines topics in other fields like Duricrust and Ironstone.
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 Quaternary Geochronology (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 Quaternary Geochronology (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, 6.25% of publications had an unrecognized affiliation. Out of the publications with recognized affiliations, 60.00% were posted by at least one author from the top 10 institutions publishing in the journal. Another 0.00% included authors affiliated with research institutions from the top 11-20 affiliations. Institutions from the 21-50 range included 0.00% of all publications and 40.00% 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.
