Top Journals for Software Engineering & Programming

The Ranking of Top Journals for Computer Science and Electronics was prepared by Guide2Research, one of the leading portals for computer science research providing trusted data on scientific contributions since 2014.

The position in the ranking is based on a novel bibliometric score computed by G2R 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.

The procedure for ranking journals features 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.

More details on the methodology for computing the score can be accessed at our methodology.
