Best Plant Science and Agronomy Journals

This ranking of leading journals for Plant Science and Agronomy was prepared by Research.com, one of the leading platforms for Plant Science and Agronomy research offering trusted data on scientific publications since 2014.

The spot in the ranking is based on a unique bibliometric score designed by Research.com which is established by means of the estimated discipline index (D-index) in addition to the number of leading scientists who have endorsed the journal within the previous five years. Show more

Please that this year's edition is based on information aggregated for 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020, 2021.

The list displays Impact Score metrics collected on 06-12-2021.

The system for evaluating journals involved examining as much as 1,878 journals which were chosen after meticulous inspection and scrupulous examination of over 16,577 scientific documents published within the last five years by 2,019 leading and well-renowned scholars in the area of Plant Science and Agronomy.

More details on the methodology for calculating the score can be found on our our methodology page.
