These evaluations are typically updated on an annual basis and follow a three or four year cycle, meaning that are evaluated based on their performance over the past three or four years. Q1 Journals list Rating is based on several elements.

  • Journals Impact factor
  • Cite Score
  • Rank
  • Percentile

Various organizations rate academic journals, and the university administration has established a standard whereby a journal will be recognized as Q1 Journals list only if it receives a Q1 rating from all three of the following rating groups:


  • Scopus
  • Web of Science/ Clarivate
  • Scimago

Q1 Journal

Q1 Journals denotes the top 25% of the Impact factor distribution

Q2 Journal

Q2 denotes middle high Position (between 25%-50% of the Impact factor distribution)

Q3 Journal

Q3 denotes middle low position (between 50%-75% of the Impact factor distribution)

Q4 Journal

Q4 denotes the lowest position (bottom 25% of the Impact factor distribution)

How is the citation impact factor calculated for Q1

The citation impact factor of a journal is used to determine its quartile ranking, including Q1 ranking. Here are the steps to calculate the citation impact factor for Q1 journals based on the provided search results:

  •   The Impact Factor (IF) is a metric that gauges the typical quantity of citations that a journal's articles obtain.
  •   The Impact Factor (IF) of a journal is determined by dividing the total citations received by all articles published in the journal during a particular year (such as 2022) by the total number of articles published in the journal during the two years prior (such as 2020 and 2021).
  •   The IF is updated every year and may vary from one year to another.
  •   Q1 journals are determined by their impact factor, which must be in the highest quartile (the top 25%) among journals publishing in the same field of science.
  •   Q1 ranking is based on the quartile of the Impact Factor distribution that a journal falls into for a particular subject category. This ranking is unique to each journal and subject group.
  •   The top-tier publications in a particular field are typically those that fall under the Q1 quartile.
  •   The score for Q1 is associated with any article that has been published in a journal ranked by IF.
  •   The number of references per article in a scholar's field significantly impacts the Q1 journals.

How can researchers find Q1 journals in their specific field of study

Researchers can find Q1 journals in their specific field of study by considering the following methods:

  •   Use Journal Citation Reports (JCR): JCR is a database that provides a list of journals ranked by their impact factor. Researchers can use JCR to identify Q1 journals in their field of study.
  •   Check the impact factor or CiteScore: Researchers can check the impact factor or CiteScore of a journal to determine if it is in Q1. The impact factor reflects how many times articles from the journal have been cited in other scientific publications over a certain period of time. A journal's Q1 is determined by its impact factor, which must be in the highest quartile (the top 25%) among journals publishing in the same field of science.
  •   Use Scimago: Scimago is a tool that provides the ranking of journals from Q1 to Q4 in a range of subject areas. Researchers can use Scimago to identify Q1 journals in their field of study.
  •   Check the list of Q1 journals as per SJR: Researchers can check the list of Q1 journals as per SJR in different research fields. SJR is one of the internationally recognized standards for identifying the quartile of a journal.
  •   Consult with colleagues and mentors: Researchers can consult with colleagues and mentors in their field of study to identify Q1 journal list that are relevant to their research topic.
