The Berryman Institute (BI) is a national organization based in the Department of Wildland Resources at Utah State University. We are dedicated to improving human-wildlife relationships and resolving human-wildlife conflicts through teaching, research, and extension. We are pleased to announce the BI Journal Human-Wildlife Interactions (HWI), edited by Dr. Michael R. Conover, has been assigned an impact factor by SCIMAGO Institutions (SJR). The SJR is a portal that includes the journals and country scientific indicators developed from the information contained in the Scopus®
database (Elsevier B.V.
). These indicators can be used to assess and analyze scientific domains.
We have a SJR indicator of 0.47 and a citations/papers of 0.56. Our scores put us in the second-highest quartile for all ecology journals and second-highest quartile for all nature and landscape journals! They do not have a group for wildlife journals. The SJR indicator measures the scientific influence of the average article in a journal, it expresses how central to the global scientific discussion an average article of the journal is. Cites per Doc. (2y) measures the scientific impact of an average article published in the journal, it is computed using the same formula that journal impact factor ™ (Thomson Reuters).
