A Spot Light on IJST

International Journal for Sciences and Technology (IJST) is an international scope journal issued by the International Centre for Advancement of Sciences and Technology (ICAST),  in Amman Capital City of The Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, in a cooperation with Treasure Establishment for Scientific Training and Consultations (TSTC), by which these two parts were engaged together under  a slogan of : THE NEW SCIENTIFIC ALLIANCE. The journal has an Editorial Board composed from an elite group of well- recognized high qualified scientists and experts from different specialties and interests who gave the journal its valuable scientific position.

As it is a refereed scientific journal since 2006, the journal is honored by the advisory group and referees from various countries to put their remarks and faithful opinions for the research papers submitted to the journal through the evaluation process.

IJST is issued periodically (every three months each year)  by which ICAST is publishing the journal in both hard and soft copies. The  journal is  published online at its website.


Aims and Goals to publish IJST

IJST is one of the scientific contributions offered by the International Centre for Advancement of Sciences and Technology to the Arab scientific and technological societies.

The main goal of the IJST is to benefit Arab Scientists and researchers , with a special focus on Iraqi Scientists in order to achieve the highest possible standards of researches and published papers compared with others in the whole developed world.


Scientific Fields involved in IJST

IJST publishes original research papers on all aspects of science and technology including:

scientific disciplines of Microbiology, biotechnology, cell biology, ecology, entomology, environmental science, forestry, genomics, horticulture, animal science, plant sciences, proteomics, agricultural and food science, biostatistics, biological sciences and bioengineering, computer sciences, Information Technology (IT) and engineering, water resources, pharmaceutical sciences, pharmaceutical technology, medicine, veterinary medicine, nutrition, mathematics and calculus applications, physics and astronomy, and all subfields related to these interests , to give the opportunity for all Arabic scientists and researchers to join us and publish their new ideas and discoveries in IJST, in a hopefully vision to the future of the Arab Scientific Society in developing and advancement of our civil life styles toward the best as the other parts of the world.


IJST  gained a value of ICV (Indexed Copernicus )  of 4.32 in 2013

As what we intended to add valuable steps on our journey through IJST, one of the most successful achievement had been done during October 2013, when IJST owned an international indexed value issued by Indexed Copernicus International and scored ICV: 4.32, which increased the prestigious level of the journal to the international scientific society, as Indexed Copernicus is considered one of the high standard level indexing organizations for scientific journals all around the world. We congratulate ourselves firstly for all the editorial board members who performed faithful efforts to IJST to raise its value among the scientific journals, and for the advisory groups who gave times and efforts to evaluate the researches published in IJST, and we congratulate ourselves for being here today with you all to celebrate this promising achievement, with a promise to continue what we began.

What is ICV and How could it represent an impact factor for the scientific journals

As many colleagues and researchers asked about this factor and how does it represent as an impact factor for IJST, the following  brief description of ICV will help in understanding IC value:

‘Index Copernicus’ (IC) is a web-based research infrastructure since 1999, which provides essential tools for scientists, research administrators and government agencies. Index Copernicus™ (IC) also provides an interactive and reliable scientists’ evaluation system. IC performs multi-parameter analysis of scientific output and research potential, both of individual scientists and research institutions. Particular scientists are assessed according to sixteen scientific activities, including, but not limited to: experience, innovation potential and aspect of scientists’ professional activity and produce Individual Annual Performance reports and Publication Activity Analysis expressed in the universal language of mathematics. Index Copernicus (IC) is a worldwide gateway to complex scientific information. Index Copernicus Value (ICV) is calculated by the following formula:

9 + [(TBS) * (IF)]

Where TBS represent the Total Basic Score and IF (called Impact Factor) represents the ratio of impact.
Journals indexed in one of the databases: Science Citation Index Expanded, Social Science Citation Index Expanded, Art and Humanities obtain the ICV = 9 points. This system is aimed at: Journal editors, academic-level researchers, government agencies, clinical practitioners, librarians and information and reprint providers.  IC Journal Master List (JML) is a journal indexing, ranking and abstracting system. This service helps a journal to grow from a local level to a global one as well as providing complete web-based solution for small editorial teams. This service accepts peer-reviews and tracks manuscripts online and builds up relations with authors, reviewers and readers as well as increasing the international awareness of a journal. The  Index Copernicus team has begun the evaluation of scientific journals in 2013. The purpose of the evaluation is to give scientific journals score, which will have an impact on the scores of scientific articles published in these journals.

We are expecting that our Journal will raise its IC value for 2013 as IJST is officially listed  with the methodology of the IC Journals Master List. (visit :  http://jml2012.indexcopernicus.com/passport.php?id=5614&id_lang=3  for IJST ICV score that was announced at IC official website)


IJST  gained a value of SJIF (Scientific Journal Impact Factor)  of 3.735 in 2013, and 4.487 in 2014

In another promising step, IJST was indexed throughout the International Scientific Journal Impact Factor (SJIF), and gained a value of this factor in 2013 (3.735). Then, this value was upgraded in 2014 and IJST has awarded new score, that is (4.487)www.sjifactor.inno-space.org


IJST  gained a value of GIF ( Global Impact Factor)  of 0.81 in 2015

IJST had continued towards gaining more international indexing and impact factor, when it awarded a new impact factor , Global Impact Factor (GIF) for a value of: 0.81 in 2015. this impact factor is considered one of the most important impact factors that are awarded to the scientific journals around the world.
