The Eigenfactor

The Eigenfactor™ [EFT] score of a journal is an estimate of the percentage of time that library users spend with that journal. This factor measures the prestige of a Journal because with a prestigious journal, faculty members will spend more time. We will assign of a weight of 100 marks to EFT. The percentile rank will be the mark obtained out of 100.

Journal Quality Ranking System

JQRSTM is domain independent and applicable to scientific journals of fields of science, engineering & technology, management and medicine etc. JQRSTM helps decision makers in the top University management to reward quality researchers by allowing them reduced teaching load or to put a minimum quality bar on the publications considered for promotion or annual performance evaluation.

SCImago Journal & Country Rank

The SCImago Journal & Country Rank is a publicly available portal that includes the journals and country scientific indicators developed from the information contained in the Scopus® database (Elsevier B.V.). These indicators can be used to assess and analyze scientific domains. Journals can be compared or analysed separately. Country rankings may also be compared or analysed separately. Journals can be grouped by subject area (27 major thematic areas), subject category (313 specific subject categories) or by country. Citation data is drawn from over 34,100 titles from more than 5,000 international publishers and country performance metrics from 239 countries worldwide. The SJCR allows you also to embed significative journal metrics into your web as a clickable image widget

Source-normalized Impact per Paper (SNIP)

Source-normalized Impact per Paper (SNIP) is a field normalised assessment of journal impact. SNIP scores are the ratio of a source's average citation count and 'citation potential'. Citation potential is measured as the number of citations that a journal would be expected to receive for its subject field. Essentially, the longer the reference list of a citing publication, the lower the value of a citation originating from that publication. SNIP therefore allows for direct comparison between fields of research with different publication and citation practices.

The Scopus database is the source of data used to calculate SNIP scores. SNIP is calculated as the number of citations given in the present year to publications in the past three years divided by the total number of publications in the past three years. A journal with a SNIP of 1.0 has the median (not mean) number of citations for journals in that field.

SNIP only considers for peer reviewed articles, conference papers and reviews.

SNIP scores are available from the two databases listed below: CWTS Journal Indicators and Scopus
