Journal of Number Theory - ISSN 0022-314X
Source Normalized Impact per Paper (SNIP): 1.079 Source Normalized Impact per Paper (SNIP):
SNIP measures contextual citation impact by weighting citations based on the total number of citations in a subject field.
SCImago Journal Rank (SJR): 0.837 SCImago Journal Rank (SJR):
SJR is a prestige metric based on the idea that not all citations are the same. SJR uses a similar algorithm as the Google page rank; it provides a quantitative and a qualitative measure of the journal’s impact.
Impact Factor: 0.684 (2018) Impact Factor:
The Impact Factor measures the average number of citations received in a particular year by papers published in the journal during the two preceding years.

5 Year Impact Factor: 0.721 (2018) Five-Year Impact Factor:
To calculate the five year Impact Factor, citations are counted in 2016 to the previous five years and divided by the source items published in the previous five years.

The Journal of Number Theory (JNT) features selected research articles that represent the broad spectrum of interest in contemporary number theory and allied areas. A valuable resource for mathematicians, the journal provides an international forum for the publication of original research in this field.

The Journal of Number Theory is encouraging submissions of quality, long articles where most or all of the technical details are included. The journal now considers and welcomes also papers in Computational Number Theory.

Starting in May 2019, JNT will have a new format with 3 sections:

JNT Prime targets (possibly very long with complete proofs) high impact papers. Articles published in this section will be granted 1 year promotional open access.

JNT General Section is for shorter papers. We particularly encourage submission from junior researchers. Every attempt will be made to expedite the review process for such submissions.

Computational JNT . This section aims to provide a forum to disseminate contributions which make significant use of computer calculations to derive novel number theoretic results. There will be an online repository where supplementary codes and data can be stored.

Currently, the JNT has a large volume of submissions claiming to prove famous conjectures such as Fermat's Last Theorem, the Riemann Hypothesis, the Goldbach Problem, etc. The new JNT does not automatically referee such papers. For papers 20 pages or less JNT charges $200 a page or $2000 (whichever amount is smaller) to hire a referee, and for papers 20 pages or more JNT charges $100 per page. If no mistakes are found, the money will be refunded and the article published in JNT.
