New CiteScore for Astronomy & Astrophysics shows a significant increase

Following the release of the latest CiteScores by Scopus, we are pleased to report that the 2021 CiteScore for Astronomy & Astrophysics (A&A) is 9.9 – an increase from 8.3 in 2020. It is now ranked 11/101 in Space and Planetary Science and 11/91 in Astronomy and Astrophysics (Q1). We are delighted to see the high-quality content published by A&A continuing to make an impact in the astronomy and astrophysics community. We look forward to further success following A&A’s transition to the Subscribe-to-Open (S2O) open access model in 2022.

Scopus began providing CiteScores 11 years ago. They are now available for more than 27,000 titles in 332 disciplines. According to Scopus, “CiteScore metrics deliver greater insight into research impact and influence… researchers can use CiteScore to help determine where to publish and showcase their research as well as identify serial titles to read.”

We would like to thank all our Editors, reviewers and authors for their hard work which has contributed to this success. Stay up-to-date with the latest research from A&A by signing up for free e-mail alerts.
