Rank Journals. Journal Indicators

Journal sets listed in rankings can be customized by filtering and ranking criteria and applying a lower threshold to the ranking. Every journal can be analyzed separately, just click the journal title's link to obtain an individual profile including time series tables and charts to analyze significative metrics of journal performance. Ranking and filtering options include:

Scopus® Subject Areas and Subject Categories
Journals are assigned to 27 major thematic categories as well as to 313 specific subject categories according to Scopus® Classification. You can use these to narrow the output set
Country
ISO Codes are used to represent country names
Year
Source year for obtained values
Order by
The result set can be ranked by SJR, Cites per document (2 years), H index, Journal Title, Total Documents, Citable Documents (3 years) and Total Cites (3 years)

SJR (SCImago Journal Rank) indicator
It expresses the average number of weighted citations received in the selected year by the documents published in the selected journal in the three previous years, --i.e. weighted citations received in year X to documents published in the journal in years X-1, X-2 and X-3. See detailed description of SJR PDF.
H Index
The h index expresses the journal's number of articles (h) that have received at least h citations. It quantifies both journal scientific productivity and scientific impact and it is also applicable to scientists, countries, etc. (see H-index wikipedia definition)
Total Docs./Total Documents
Output of the selected period. All types of documents are considered, including citable and non citable documents.
Total Docs. (3years)
Published documents in the three previous years (selected year documents are excluded), i.e.when the year X is selected, then X-1, X-2 and X-3 published documents are retrieved. All types of documents are considered, including citable and non citable documents.

It includes all the bibliographical references in a journal in the selected period.
Total Cites (3years)
Number of citations received in the seleted year by a journal to the documents published in the three previous years, --i.e. citations received in year X to documents published in years X-1, X-2 and X-3. All types of documents are considered.

Cites per Doc (3 years)
Average citations per document in a 3 year period. It is computed considering the number of citations received by a journal in the current year to the documents published in the three previous years, --i.e. citations received in year X to documents published in years X-1, X-2 and X-3.
Cites per Doc (4 years)
Average citations per document in a 4 year period. It is computed considering the number of citations received by a journal in the current year to the documents published in the four previous years, --i.e. citations received in year X to documents published in years X-1, X-2, X-3 and X-4.
Ref. / Doc.
Average number of references per document in the selected year.
Self Cites
Number of journal's self-citations in the seleted year to its own documents published in the three previous years, --i.e. self-citations in year X to documents published in years X-1, X-2 and X-3. All types of documents are considered.
Non-citable documents (Available in the graphics)
Non-citable documents ratio in the period being considered.
Cited Documents (Cited Doc.)
Number of documents cited at least once in the three previous years, --i.e. years X-1, X-2 and X-3
Uncited Documents (Uncited Doc.)
Number of uncited documents in the three previous years, --i.e. years X-1, X-2 and X-3
% International Collaboration
Document ratio whose affiliation includes more than one country address.

Countries and World Regions

Find a Country

Finding a country to be analyzed is a rather intuitive task through the interactive. Countries are easily browsable through the world regions list and the interactive map.

Rank Countries and World Regions

Country ranks can be customized by filtering and ranking criteria and and applying a lower threshold to the ranking. Every country can be then analyzed separately, just click the country name's link to obtain an individual profile. This profile includes time series tables and charts including significative metrics of country performance. Ranking and filtering options include:

Documents
Number of documents published during the selected year. It is usually called the country's scientific output.
Citable Documents
Selected year citable documents. Exclusively articles, reviews and conference papers are considered.
Cites
Number of citations of all dates received by the documents published during the source year, --i.e. citations in years X, X+1, X+2, X+3... to documents published during year X. When referred to the period 1996-2012, all published documents during this period are considered.

Displayed metrics include tables and charts for the following indices: SJR, Total Document, Total Docs in 3 years, Total References, Total Cites in 3 year, Self Cites in 3 year, Citable Document in 3 year, Cites per Document in 4 year, Cites per Document in 3 year, Cites per Document in 2 year, References per Document and Cited Document Rate

Visualize. Map Generator

The Map Generator uses a wealth of metrics to depict two types of Maps of Science based upon national science indicators for 2 year periods between 1996 and 2012. These maps are intended to help reveal the existence of underlying scientific structures and plot science outputs and performance at a national level. Available maps include: Co-citation networks and Bubble charts.

Co-citation networks

National scientific structures can be analyzed through two levels of detail for Co-citaton Network Maps based on Scopus® Classification's Science Areas (27 major fields) and Subject Categories (313 narrower thematic categories). The maps show the following features:

  • Field/category size is depicted by the node size
  • Relationship (similarity) intensity is displayed when hovering the mouse icon over fields/categories
  • Lables can be dragged and maps can be displaced to fit to your needs
  • Zoom and Search features are available to handle the maps to fit to your needs. More specific node labels will appear when the appropriate zoom level is reached

Bubble charts

National scientific output can be analyzed through customizable Bubble Charts for a richness of performance metrics. These charts also offer two levels of detail based on Scopus® Classification's Science Areas (27 major fields) and Subject Categories (313 narrower thematic categories). Bubble charts features includes:

  • Default view plots H index (on X axis) versus Cites per Documents (on Y axis), corresponding the bubble size to the field publication size
  • Indicators choice and arrangement is customizable through the Change Variable Buttons
  • Available indicators to be plotted are: Documents, Citable Documents, Cites, Self Cites, Cites per Document, H index

Embedding

  • SJR (SCImago Journal Rank)
  • Citations per paper: Average citations per paper in a 2 year period.
  • Total number of citations: Number of citations received by the journal in a 3 year period.

The widget may or may not display the journal title so it best fits to your website layout. The clickable image displayed on your site will lead to the journal full profile at SCImago Journal & Country Rank.

To embed the widget, just copy the code, select whether or not display the journal title, and paste it into your web or blog.
