APJTB ICV : 122.47, normalized ICV: 7.66


   Asian Pacific Journal of Tropical Biomedicine (APJTB) in 2014 received the ICV (Index Copernicus Value) of 122.47 points. And the normalized value is 7.66 for the year 2014 available HRER (http://journals.indexcopernicus.com/Asian+Pacific+Journa,p131,3.html?utm_source=SARE&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=ICI+Journals+Master+List+2014).
   This year the scientific journal’s evaluation methodology developed by Index Copernicus has undergone some important changes. The ICV is composed of two elements:
>Quality of scientific journal, for which a journal may receive up to 100 points,
>Impact of scientific journal, for this criterion a journal may receive from 0 to 400 points based on the complex algorithms.
   The normalized value is used to compare the ICV for 2014 with the indexes from previous years. For more detailed information, please visit:http://indexcopernicus.com

IC value 2013 for APJTB was 8.6; 2012 was 7.75.

Introduction to Index Copernicus

   Developed since 1999, Index Copernicus is a Web-based Research Infrastructure, developed since 1999, which provides essential tools for scientists, research administrators and government agencies. Based on our US patent pending mathematical formulas, the 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 scientist and research institutions. It is also the only worldwide uniformed fully operational, global web-based platform for scientists' networking and collaboration, capable of determining the "value-for-money" effectiveness of existing or potential research teams. Using IC for project proposals evaluation, one can measure the real research potential of individual scientists, project leaders and a research team in real time. Particular scientists are assessed according to sixteen scientific activities, including, but not limited to: experience, innovation potential and research skills. The overall team score also takes into account a cumulative Administration Index score of team members.
   Index Copernicus has been designed to analyze every aspect of scientists' professional activity and produce Individual Annual Performance reports and Publication Activity Analysis expressed in the universal language of mathematics. What is equally important is that, IC is able to measure the potential of an individual scientist or a group to succeed or fail within the proposed project under specific grant requirements.
   Index Copernicus is an excellent platform for scientists' networking and execution of joint research projects. This web-based scientists' collaboration platform, called Virtual Research Groups (VRG), its aim is to enhance research productivity. VRG provides a complete research environment, which offers a set of essential tools to promote and initiate international, multi-location research.
