Abstracting and indexing
Scientific Reports is abstracted and indexed in PubMed/MEDLINE and the Science Citation Index. According to the Journal Citation Reports, the journal's impact factor has increased from 2.927 in 2012 to 5.578 in 2014.
Scientific Reports has been described as a mega journal, conceptually similar to PLoS ONE, based on article processing charges and a peer review model emphasizing scientific quality not perceived impact. In 2015, an editor resigned from Scientific reports when the journal introduced an expedited peer review service through a private company in exchange for an additional fee.
