Impact Score* 8.1
The journal primarily focuses on research topics in Virology, Virus, Immunology, Viral replication and Genetics. It emphasizes research on Virology, which includes concerns such as Outbreak. The concepts on Virus presented in Viruses can also apply to other research fields, including Microbiology, Cell biology, Vaccination, Innate immune system and Virulence.
The Immunology study tackled is a key component of adjacent topics in the area of Disease. The majority of Genetics studies presented zero in on Genome. The Genome study featured in Viruses draws connections with the study of Phylogenetic tree.
The published papers explore disciplines such as Virology, Virus, Immunology, Viral replication and Genetics. The journal articles deal with Virology in conjunction with Innate immune system and similar fields in Interferon. In addition to Virus research, the most cited papers aim to explore topics under Transmission (medicine), RNA virus and Host (biology).
The journal is organized to address concerns in the fields of Virology, Virus, Immune system, Genome and Cell biology. Virology research presented in Viruses encompasses a variety of subjects, including Antibody and Genotype. The journal explores research in Antibody and the adjacent study of Antigen.
It explores topics in Virus which can be helpful for research in disciplines like RNA, Innate immune system, Pandemic and Vaccination. Research on Immune system presented in the journal concerns the broader topic of Immunology. Genome is the topic of focus in Genetics and Gene research tackled in the journal.
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 Viruses (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 Viruses (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 2021 edition, 16.47% of publications had an unrecognized affiliation. Out of the publications with recognized affiliations, 13.39% were posted by at least one author from the top 10 institutions publishing in the journal. Another 7.59% included authors affiliated with research institutions from the top 11-20 affiliations. Institutions from the 21-50 range included 13.91% of all publications and 65.11% 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.
