Computer Science Journal Rankings

DISCLAIMER:
  • The ranking of journals are taken from an informal external source. The detailed procedure behind the ranking is unknown to the author. These rankings do not necessarily represent my personal view either.
  • There is a possibility that some of the rankings may not be accurate, may not reflect current status of the journals accurately, may not be complete, and there is no copyright. If you are looking for a scientifically accurate ranking please disregard this page. The author does not bear any responsibility if the ranking is inaccurate.
  • If you think this ranking offends you for some reason (e.g., you are not satisfied with the ranking of your journal), please just ignore the list. This is not an OFFICIAL list. This is ONLY FOR REFERENCE.
