ORD receives its first Impact Factor of 0.4

June 2023

We are delighted to announce that our esteemed journal, ORD (ISSN: 2391-6060), has achieved a significant milestone with the attainment of its inaugural Impact Factor. In June 2023, the Journal Citation Reports™ (Clarivate) awarded ORD an impressive Impact Factor of 0.4.

It is noteworthy that ORD maintains its inclusion in the prestigious Emerging Sources Citation Index (ESCI) within the Web of Science Core Collection. This achievement marks a momentous occasion as Clarivate now extends Impact Factors to journals beyond the core flagship indices, SCIE and SSCI, enhancing the transparency surrounding the influence of ESCI-indexed journals.

The calculation of the 2022 Journal Impact Factor involves assessing the number of citations received by publications in our journal as recorded in the Web of Science during 2022. This figure is then divided by the total number of citable publications published in 2020 and 2021.

We attribute this remarkable accomplishment to the unwavering support and dedication of our esteemed journal editors, diligent reviewers, talented authors, and avid readers. This moment would not have been possible without the invaluable contributions from each of you.

As we celebrate this milestone, we extend our heartfelt gratitude to all who have played a pivotal role in the success of our journal.
