[Purposes] Considering that the current situation of the whole academic influence of the natural science journals of normal universities is weak, this paper aims to propose a pathway to promote the diffusion of its academic influence. [Methods] The basic information of 25 natural science journals of normal universities selected from Chinese Scientific Journals Citation Report (Core Edition): Natural Science in 2017 was analyzed, which provided data support for the study of the diffusion of academic influence and the construction of journal clusters. [Findings] The natural science journals of normal universities have the characteristic of solid foundation and convenient condition in the group construction. We put forward the specific pathway to promote the diffusion of their academic influence. [Conclusions] The natural science journals can improve the levels by digging up the resources for running them deeply. We can promote the diffusion of the whole academic influence of the natural science journals of normal universities by taking the opportunity of double-class construction, taking normal education as their characteristic, and developing journals through approaches such as syndicated aggregation, difference management, and resource sharing.
