SCImago Journal & Country Rank

The Caribbean Journal of Science began publication in 1961 with the sponsorship of the College of Arts and Sciences of the University of Puerto Rico at Mayagüez. 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 of the University of Puerto Rico at Mayagüez and 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.
