The Best Artificial Intelligence Journals

This is a ranking of the best Artificial Intelligence journals in the United States.

Where do advances in research of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning get published? In various professional Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning journals. These are the repositories of AI advancements and a window into the current state-of-the-art, and in large part its knowledge base.

Papers in AI journals get cited by other AI researchers and publications. And so the new findings and new research is shared and built upon, which contributes to the pace of AI advancements. Which in turn accelerates the speed in further Artificial Intelligence research, advancements, and capabilities.

Artificial Intelligence is the future, but it's also the 'now'. Artificial Intelligence investments broke records in 2019 for the most money invested by venture capitalists. More and more businesses are benefitting from AI, Machine Learning, and Big Data to make sense of business decisions and opportunities.

To make this ranking of the Best Artificial Intelligence Journals, we looked at the h-index for these journals, taken for each journal as a whole. This was done by consulting with Scimago Journal and Country Rank. We selected Computer Science: Artificial Intelligence: United States: Journals: 2019. We then sorted the journals by h-index score.
