Publication Metrics: Scopus

Information in Scopus

Scopus provides detailed information about the journals it indexes, including those titles that are Open Access. Among the types of data included for a source are the following:

  1. Cite Score: average citations received per article
  2. SJR (SCImago Journal Rank): According to Scopus, this "measures weighted citations received by a serial. Citation weighting depends on subject field and prestige (SJR) or the citing serial."
  3. SNIP: Source Normalized Impact per Paper: measures actual citations received relative to citations exected
  4. Cite Score Tracker
  5. Cite Score Rank: where a journal ranks in citations compared to other journals in the field
