Journal Metrics

Usage
  • 41 307Downloads 2022
    Springer measures the usage on the SpringerLink platform according to the COUNTER (Counting Online Usage of NeTworked Electronic Resources) standards.
  • 53 Usage Factor 2021/2022
    The Springer Journal Usage Factor 2021/2022 was calculated as suggested by the COUNTER Code of Practice for Usage Factors. It is the median value of the number of downloads in 2021/2022 for all articles published online in that particular journal during the same time period. The Usage Factor calculation is based on COUNTER-compliant usage data on the SpringerLink platform. (Counting Online Usage of NeTworked Electronic Resources) standards.

Impact
  • 0.6 Impact Factor 2022
    Journal Impact Factors are published each summer by Thomson Reuters via Journal Citation Reports ®. Impact Factors and ranking data are presented for the preceding calendar year.
  • 0.40Source Normalized Impact per Paper (SNIP) 2022
    Source Normalized Impact per Paper (SNIP) measures contextual citation impact by weighting citations based on the total number of citations in a subject field. The impact of a single citation is given higher value in subject areas where citations are less likely, and vice versa.
  • Q4Quartile: Atomic and Molecular Physics, and Optics 2022
    The set of journals have been ranked according to their SJR and divided into four equal groups, four quartiles. Q1 (green) comprises the quarter of the journals with the highest values, Q2 (yellow) the second highest values, Q3 (orange) the third highest values and Q4 (red) the lowest values.
  • 0.22 SCImago Journal Rank (SJR) 2022
    SCImago Journal Rank (SJR) is a measure of scientific influence of scholarly journals that accounts for both the number of citations received by a journal and the importance or prestige of the journals where such citations come from.
  • 42H-Index 2022
    A journal has an H index of h if it published h papers each of which has been cited in other journals at least h times. Calculations are based on Scopus.

SCOPE

Optics and Spectroscopy  is a peer-reviewed journal that publishes original and review articles in various fields of modern optics and spectroscopy in the wavelength range from radio waves to X-rays. Topics covered by the journal include problems of theoretical and experimental spectroscopy of atoms, molecules, and condensed state; physics and technology of lasers and light-matter interaction; nanooptics; optics of femtosecond and ultrashort pulses; nonlinear and quantum optics; physical and geometrical optics; holography; physical principles of optical instrument making; fiber optics; photonics and optical computer systems; and mathematical modeling of optical phenomena. Previously focused on translation, the journal now has the aim to become an international publication and accepts manuscripts originally submitted in English from all countries, along with translated works. The peer review policy of the journal is independent of the manuscript source, ensuring a fair and unbiased evaluation process for all submissions.

READERSHIP

The readership of the journal includes researchers in the field of optics and spectroscopy, as well as their applications, beginners in the field, and students.
