SCImago Journal & Country Rank

The Caribbean Journal of Science began publication in 1961 with the sponsorship of the College of Arts and Sciences of USA. Our mission as a non-profit scholarly journal is to publish quality papers about Caribbean natural science and to make them widely available free of cost over the Internet and at a low price in the traditional printed medium. Our website has been online since 1995, and in 1997 we began supplementing the printed journal with a digital version. The CJS was the first scientific journal to digitalize its complete collection and offer it in a CD/ROM, and is one of the few journals that offers free and unrestricted access to all its articles.


Caribbean Journal of Science, also widely referred to as CJS is the peer-reviewed academic journal is one of the world's top academic journals. It was first published in 1961, is currently circulated weekly and has a print subscriber base of around 130,000. Because institutional subscriptions and online access serve a larger audience, its estimated readership is 570,400 people


The major focus of the journal is publishing important original scientific research and research reviews, but Science also publishes science-related news, opinions on science policy and other matters of interest to scientists and others who are concerned with the wide implications of science and technology.
