Scope Taxon is the journal of the International Association for Plant Taxonomy (IAPT) and is devoted to systematic and evolutionary biology with emphasis on botany. The journal accepts articles on Plant Phylogeny, Evolution, Taxonomy, Morphology, Paleobotany, Palynology, Methods and Techniques, Biodiversity and Conservation, and of related fields, as well as contributions to discussions on timely issues (e.g., Points of View, Letters to the Editor). The journal is also an important outlet for publication of items dealing with Plant Nomenclature (including official Proposals to amend the International Code of Botanical Nomenclature, nomenclature committee reports, and commentaries). Manuscripts are peer-reviewed. (source)

The set of journals have been ranked according to their SJR and divided into four equal groups, four quartiles. Q1 (green) comprises the quarter of the journals with the highest values, Q2 (yellow) the second highest values, Q3 (orange) the third highest values and Q4 (red) the lowest values.

The SJR is a size-independent prestige indicator that ranks journals by their 'average prestige per article'. It is based on the idea that 'all citations are not created equal'. SJR is a measure of scientific influence of journals that accounts for both the number of citations received by a journal and the importance or prestige of the journals where such citations come from It measures the scientific influence of the average article in a journal, it expresses how central to the global scientific discussion an average article of the journal is.

Citations per document

This indicator counts the number of citations received by documents from a journal and divides them by the total number of documents published in that journal. The chart shows the evolution of the average number of times documents published in a journal in the past two, three and four years have been cited in the current year. The two years line is equivalent to journal impact factor ™ (Thomson Reuters) metric.

External Cites per Doc 
Cites per Doc

Evolution of the number of total citation per document and external citation per document (i.e. journal self-citations removed) received by a journal's published documents during the three previous years. External citations are calculated by subtracting the number of self-citations from the total number of citations received by the journal’s documents.

Citable documents 
Non-citable documents

Not every article in a journal is considered primary research and therefore "citable", this chart shows the ratio of a journal's articles including substantial research (research articles, conference papers and reviews) in three year windows vs. those documents other than research articles, reviews and conference papers.
