Scope ECCLESIA ORANS, Periodica de Scientiis Liturgicis, is another expression of the Liturgical Institute’s commitment to foster the growth of the liturgical sciences on a broader and more international level. The aim of the new review is to treat of the literary (editing and study of texts), historical, theological, pastoral, and artistic aspects of the liturgy and related questions. The distinctive feature of the review is its scientific method and exposition of the subject matter under consideration. Through such an approach it hopes to contribute, on a scientific level, to contemporary discussions regarding the conciliar and postconciliar liturgical renewal. It is the conviction of the Liturgical Institute that present-day questions of pastoral liturgy and adaptation to various cultures will be answered authoritatively, only on the condition that a firm scientific foundation is laid. ECCLESIA ORANS, like the Liturgical Institute, is international. Contributions are to come from the professors of the Liturgical Institute and the other Faculties of the Athenaeum of Sant’Anselnzo, who are themselves from different countries, from the graduates of the Liturgical Institute, from well-known liturgical scholars, and from writers who specialize in topics that are related to the liturgy. The articles will appear in the language of the writers: English, French, German, Italian, Portuguese and Spanish. The editorial, however, will be in English and Italian. (source)

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.
