Dear Authors, Readers, and Editors,
The Editorial team of Citizen Science: Theory and Practice is pleased to announce that we are moving into the academic publication ranking systems! Of course it is early days for us, and indexers take time to review a journal for inclusion, but we are thrilled with our progress thus far, and are excited to share it with all of you.
Citizen Science: Theory and Practice received a Scimago Journal Ranking of 0.61 and a CiteScore of 2.2 for 2021. The journal is also indexed by the Norwegian Register for scientific journals, series and publishers.
For many of you, rankings are important for furthering your careers. In some academic systems, academics are expected to publish only in ranked journals. Rankings tell a story, incomplete though it is, about the quality of our work, and this is frequently used in hiring and promotion cases.
You can help in this area by sharing papers from the journal on social media, and make sure that your colleagues and students are aware of the growing collection of citizen science papers that we have.
