Scope The Journal of Poverty is the first refereed journal to recognize the inequalities in our social, political, and economic structures, presenting progressing strategies that expand society"s increasingly narrow notions of poverty and inequality. The journal"s broad understanding of poverty—more inclusive than the traditional view—keeps the focus on people"s need for education, employment, safe and affordable housing, nutrition, and adequate medical care, and on interventions that range from direct practice to community organization to social policy analysis. The journal"s articles will increase your knowledge and awareness of oppressive forces such as racism, sexism, classism, and homophobia that contribute to the maintenance of poverty and inequality.

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.
