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'.

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 two years line is equivalent to journal impact factor ™ (Thomson Reuters) metric.
