Unlocking Journal Insights With Scopus Journal Analyzer
Scopus Journal Analyzer
The Scopus Journal Analyzer provides a measure of journal performance. Scopus includes over 19,000 peer-reviewed publications from 5,000 publishers; the Analyzer enables you to compare up to 10 journals simultaneously, back to 1996.
- SJR (SCImago Journal Rank) is a prestige measure based on the idea that all citations are not created equal. With SJR, the subject field, quality and reputation have a direct effect on the value of a citation (About SJR)
- SNIP (Source Normalized Impact per Paper) measures citation impact by weighting citations based on the total number of citations in a specific subject field. The impact of a single citation is given higher value in subject areas where citations are less likely, and vice versa (About SNIP)
Scopus Journal Data
Scopus Journal Analyzer will chart:
- SJR (SCImago Journal Rank reflects prestige of source: value of weighted citations per document)
- SNIP (Source normalized impact per paper: corrects for differences in the frequency of citation across research fields)
- Citations (Total number of citations received by a journal in the year,considering all documents)
- Documents (Total number of documents published in the journal in the year)
- % Not Cited (Percentage of documents published in that year that have neverbeen cited to date)
You can compare up to 10 journals.
Caveats to Journal Analyzer
Scopus Journal Analyzer does not have complete citation information for articles published prior to 1996.
Four years of data are necessary to calculate a SJR or SNIP. Because Scopus records data starting in 1996, the first year available for a SJR or SNIP is 1999.
Example of Journal Analyzer Search
The Impact per Publication measures the ratio of citations in a year (Y) to scholarly papers published in the three previous years (Y-1, Y-2, Y-3) divided by the number of scholarly papers published in those same years (Y-1, Y-2, Y-3).
The Impact per Publication metric is using a citation window of three years which is considered to be the optimal time period to accurately measure citations in most subject fields.
Taking into account the same peer-reviewed scholarly papers only in both the numerator and denominator of the equation provides a fair impact measurement of the journal and diminishes the chance of manipulation.
