The “Journal of Molecular Structure” is preferred as the most popular journal by the authors whereas the Journal of “Knowledge-Based System” ranked first having highest impact factor amongst other journals. The study reveals that SJEC has especially contributed to the research in computer science, engineering, physics and astronomy, material science, chemistry, mathematics, medicine, business management and accounting, energy and decision science.
