Overview

What are SJR and SNIP?

SJR (SCImago Journal Rank):

SCImago Journal Rank (SJR is a metric based on the idea that ‘all citations are not created equal’. With SJR, the subject field, quality and reputation of the journal has a direct effect on the value of a citation.  See paper at http://arxiv.org/abs/0912.4141.

SNIP (Source Normalized Impact per Paper):

Source Normalized Impact per Paper (SNIP) measures contextual citation impact by weighting citations based on the total number of citations in a subject field. The impact of a single citation is given higher value in subject areas where citations are less likely, and vice versa. See paper on SNIP here.
