Indian journal crosses impact factor 2.00 for the first time

The Bulletin of the Astronomical Society of India (BASI) [ISSN: 0304-9523], a quarterly journal published by the Astronomical Society of India, registered office at the Astronomy Department, Osmania University, Hyderabad has become the first Indian journal to cross impact factor (IF) of 2.000 for the first time; its 2010 IF being 2.6001. However, the 2009 IF of the BASI was 0.312.


In 2004, two Indian journals crossed IF of 1.000 for the first time3. Since then, this escalating trend has been continuing4.


More importantly, the 2010 edition of the Journal Citation Reports, science edition ( n = 8005) lists 93 Indian journals , the maximum number of Indian journals covered so far. Of these, 9 journals have IF > = 1.000 (Table 1).It is indeed a healthy sign for the Indian S&T journals.
