Impact Metrics

The following citation metrics are produced by abstracting and indexing databases using their respective datasets. These metrics represent a variety of methods for measuring the citation impact of published research on a journal level.

Google Scholar

h5-index: 13

Google’s h5-index is calculated by finding the h-index for articles in a publication over the last five complete calendar years, where h is equal to the number of articles over a five-year period that have at least h citations each.


CiteScoreTracker 2021: 0.2

CiteScore value counts the citations received in the last 4 years to articles, reviews, conference papers, book chapters, and data papers published in the last 4 years, and divides this by the number of publications published in the last 4 years.

Source-normalized Impact per Paper (SNIP).318

Source Normalized Impact per Paper measures actual citations received relative to citations expected for the serial’s subject field.

SCImago Journal Rank (SJR): . (Q4)

SCImago Journal Rank (SJR) is a measure of the number of times an average paper in a particular journal is cited, and as such is conceptually similar to the Impact Factor. A major difference is that instead of each citation being counted as one, as with the Impact Factor, the SCImago Journal Rank assigns each citation a value greater or less than 1.00 based on the rank of the citing journal. The weighting is calculated using a three-year window of measurement and uses the Scopus database. Authors can use these metrics when deciding where to publish.
