Source Normalized Impact per Paper (SNIP): 1.116 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): 1.153 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: 3.813 (2019) 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: 3.889 (2019) 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 Steroid Biochemistry and Molecular Biology is devoted to new experimental and theoretical developments in areas related to steroids including vitamin D, lipids and their metabolomics. The Journal publishes a variety of contributions, including original articles, general and focused reviews, and rapid communications (brief articles of particular interest and clear novelty). Selected cutting-edge topics will be addressed in Special Issues managed by Guest Editors. Special Issues will contain both commissioned reviews and original research papers to provide comprehensive coverage of specific topics, and all submissions will undergo rigorous peer-review prior to publication.

Manuscripts relating to unsolved issues in genetics, molecular biology, biochemistry, structural biology, steroid chemistry, cell biology, molecular medicine, translational research and clinical medicine, are encouraged. Furthermore, the Journal publishes results on functional association studies and 'omics' that are instrumental in our understanding of common complex human diseases.

Specific aims

  • Studies on steroid signal transduction pathways, functional annotation of genes and kinetics of metabolic pathways
  • Provision of steroid-related tools, synthesis and analysis methods, and reference data
  • Creation of enduring and validated resources for metabolomics and systems biology analyses
  • Enhancement of our understanding, and the development of approaches to study the interplay between the environment, genomes, metabolism and disease

Exclusion criteria for manuscripts

  • data that have been as a whole or in part published elsewhere (does not apply to data that has been deposited in a data repository or documents that have been posted on a preprint server)
  • no functional analyses or mechanistic interpretation are provided
  • case descriptions or clinical descriptions of cohorts without analyses of mechanisms leading to changed phenotypes
  • observations collected by experiments in a single cell line
  • reagents that are not validated (e.g. antibodies that are not characterized, origin and identity of cells that are not depicted)
  • data based on technical replicates rather than biological replicates
  • use of inappropriate statistical analyses
