Journal Impact Factor (2018) 0.45*
* Today SNSSPU is calculating its own Impact Factor by applying algorithm based on Google Scholar's citation counts. 5-year Journal Impact Factor was established by dividing the number of articles published since 2010 with the number of times they are cited during 2014-2018 based on Google Scholar Citation Index database. If 'X' is the total number of articles published until 2018, and 'Y' is the number of times these articles were cited in indexed journals since 2014 then, journal impact factor = Y/X
