New Journal Metrics Data

Posted Sun, Jun, 14,2015

We're pleased to announce that new journal metrics data is now available.

The journal's metrics are calculated by SCImago, which draws source data from Scopus. The new metrics replace our former journal metrics that were derived from data collected for our article-level usage metrics. The new metrics are a significantly better fit for their purpose and should provide a clearer picture of the journal's status.

The new SCImago journal metrics are comprised of four indicators: an h-index, an SJR indicator that measures the scientific influence of an average article, the total quantity of citations recorded in Scopus, and the quantity of cites per document. SCImago states that the cites per document indicator is calculated with the same formula as the journal impact factor, but we must emphasize that the only official impact factors are those provided by Thomson-ISI. The journal does not yet have an official impact factor although an application will be made at an appropriate future date. All indicators are based on data from 2013 and earlier.

The new journal metrics are intended to complement our existing article-level metrics. Article-level metrics continue to be in beta as we refine the service to best meet the needs of readers and authors.
