Explanation of Journal Metrics
Impact Factor (Clarivate Analytics)
The impact factor is the ratio between citations and recent citable items published. The impact factor of a journal is calculated by dividing the number of current year citations to the source items published in that journal during the previous two years. Read more
Cited Half Life (Clarivate Analytics)
Cited Half Life is the median age of citations received by a journal during the year. A cited half-life of 4 means the median age of ciations is 4 years (half are to items newer than 4 years and half are older). Read more
CiteScore calculates the average number of citations received in a calendar year by all items published in that journal in the preceding three years. Read more
SJR (SCImago Journal Rank) (Scopus)
SJR is the measure of scientific influence of scholarly journals that accounts for both the number of citations received by a journal and the importance or prestige of the journals where such citations come from. Read more
