2021 Impact Factor – over 6 again and the highest ever

We are pleased to report that Astronomy & Astrophysics’ impact factor has increased to 6.240 – its highest ever impact factor. It is ranked 12 in the Astronomy & Astrophysics category (Q1) and is clearly held in high regard by its community (its CiteScore also increased significantly this year). We look forward to further success following A&A’s transition to the Subscribe-to-Open (S2O) open access model in 2022.

The Journal Citation Reports™ from Clarivate aim to help publishers and editors, librarians and researchers “Quickly understand a journal’s role within and influence upon the global research community ...” The release of new impact factors is eagerly anticipated every year.

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.
