q3 seeds

Q3 Academy is part of 10,000 other schools which have received seeds as part of the RHS Campaign for School Gardening and the UK Space Agency. As part of the experiment we will be keeping a watchful eye over the seeds via our streaming webcam, which can be viewed here.

Q3 Rocket Science – The seeds have landed!

Seeds which have arrived all the way from space are now growing at Q3 Academy! They were taken to the International Space Station (ISS) on Soyuz 44S and spent several months in microgravity before returning to Earth in March.

Not every article in a journal is considered primary research and therefore “citable”, this chart shows the ratio of a journal’s articles including substantial research (research articles, conference papers and reviews) in three year windows vs. those documents other than research articles, reviews and conference papers.

Journal of New Seeds

Subject Area and Category Agricultural and Biological Sciences
Agronomy and Crop Science
Horticulture Publisher Food Products Press Publication type Journals ISSN 15229025, 1522886X Coverage 1999-2010 Scope The Journal of New Seeds (JNS) responds to the urgency of producing a new generation of seeds of high productivity and quality to ensure global food security as well as of satisfying new con­sumer preferences on the threshold of a new millen­nium. Globalization and the development of genetically modified (transgenic) seed present a tremendous oppor­tunity for the seed industry worldwide. The Journal of New Seeds will cover the interna­tional range of research and development that is taking place in the entire field, from seed production, perfor­mance, and supply to the many seed protection and policy issues that surround the explosive technology now fueling the development of new seeds.

The set of journals have been ranked according to their SJR and divided into four equal groups, four quartiles. Q1 (green) comprises the quarter of the journals with the highest values, Q2 (yellow) the second highest values, Q3 (orange) the third highest values and Q4 (red) the lowest values.

The SJR is a size-independent prestige indicator that ranks journals by their ‘average prestige per article’. It is based on the idea that ‘all citations are not created equal’. SJR is a measure of scientific influence of journals that accounts for both the number of citations received by a journal and the importance or prestige of the journals where such citations come from It measures the scientific influence of the average article in a journal, it expresses how central to the global scientific discussion an average article of the journal is.

This indicator counts the number of citations received by documents from a journal and divides them by the total number of documents published in that journal. The chart shows the evolution of the average number of times documents published in a journal in the past two, three and four years have been cited in the current year. The two years line is equivalent to journal impact factor ™ (Thomson Reuters) metric.

Evolution of the number of total citation per document and external citation per document (i.e. journal self-citations removed) received by a journal’s published documents during the three previous years. External citations are calculated by subtracting the number of self-citations from the total number of citations received by the journal’s documents.
