Top Computer Science Journals for Computer Networks and Communications

The ranking of top journals for computer science was published by Research.com, one of the prominent websites for computer science research providing trusted data on scientific contributions since 2014.

The position in the ranking is based on a unique bibliometric score created by Research.com which is computed using the estimated h-index and the number of leading scientists who have endorsed the journal during the last three previous years. Show more

The ranking contains Impact Score values gathered on November 10th 2020.

The process for ranking journals involves examining more than 1000 journals which were selected after detailed inspection and rigorous examination of over 80,000 scientific documents published during the last three years by 4700 leading and well-respected scientists in the area of computer science.
