Q) What is the Impact Factor of the Journal? Is the Publication valid for the completion of my Ph.D.?
In a given year, the impact factor of a journal is the average number of citations received per paper published in that journal during the two preceding years. For example, if a journal has an impact factor of 3 in 20011, then its papers published in 2009 and 2010 received 3 citations each on average in 2011. The 2011 impact factor of a journal would be calculated as follows:
A = the number of times that articles published in that journal in 2009 and 2010, were cited by articles in indexed journals during 2011.
B = the total number of “citable items” published in that journal in 2009 and 2010. (“Citable items” are usually articles, reviews, proceedings, or notes; not editorials or letters to the editor.)
2011 impact factor = A/B.
(Note that 2010 impact factors are actually published in 2011; they cannot be calculated until all of the 2010 publications have been processed by the indexing agency.)
2015 IF OF HELIX IS 3.46 (Calculated by the above IF formula)
Q) Can you Provide Indexing Details of the Helix?
Helix is indexed by ISI Thomson Reuters, Web of Science, Google Scholar, INSPEC, Engineering Index (EI), Emerging Sources Citation Index (ESCI) and many other national and international libraries. Only 10-12% journals are listed with ESCI every year.
Q) Is it a Peer Reviewed Journal?
A) Yes, It is. Papers are reviewed on the basis that they do not contain plagiarized material and have not been submitted to any other conference/journal at the same time (double submission). Helix adopts the double-blind review process of the submitted papers.
Length of the review process varies between papers, and many factors affect the time it takes to review a paper. The time it takes for an associate editor to be assigned, and for available, qualified reviewers to be located depends on the complexity and the type of material submitted for review. Each publication makes a concerted effort to keep the review time to a minimum that is consistent with keeping the publication’s reputation for quality and integrity. Each submission placed into the review is sent to at least two reviewers.You must indicate the reason for requesting or excluding reviewers during the submission process if any.
