Journal of Visual Languages and Computing

The Journal of Computer Languages, now incorporating Computer Languages, Systems and Structures

Journal of Visual Languages and Computing - ISSN 1045-926X
Source Normalized Impact per Paper (SNIP): 1.109 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): 0.413 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: 0.971 (2017) 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.

We are excited to announce the merger of Computer Languages, Systems and Structures with the Journal of Visual Languages and Computing (JVLC), beginning with the first volume of 2019. Until now, the journals have published as separate titles but with a similar mission - to foster research into the design, implementation and use of computing languages. We feel that the time is right to bring the journals together and provide the community with a single publication which covers all areas of computer languages.

Our journal, which will continue under the title, the Journal of Computer Languages, will welcome original research articles, survey articles, and short communications. The Editorial Team will be led by Marjan Mernik (Slovenia), who will be assisted by Associate Editors with expertise in specific aspects of computer languages, and will contain members from the Editorial Boards of both Computer Languages, Systems and Structures and JVLC. Our commitment to peer-review, rapid publication and wide dissemination remains, as does our commitment to the community.

We appreciate your continued support and encourage you to submit your manuscripts to the Journal of Computer Languages.
