Scope The Journal of the Physical Society of Japan (JPSJ) is published by the Physical Society of Japan (JPS) through the Institute of Pure and Applied Physics (IPAP). It is devoted to the rapid dissemination of important research results in all fields of physics—from condensed matter physics to particle physics. Since its launch in 1946 as the successor to the well-known Proceedings of the Physico-Mathematical Society of Japan, JPSJ has published many important papers and has attained a worldwide reputation. JPSJ is an international journal. We welcome the submission of papers from all over the world. In particular, to encourage the submission of papers by researchers in developing countries, we have a program that provides them with financial support. (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.
