Scope Dao: A Journal of Comparative Philosophy directly relates Chinese philosophy to other philosophical traditions, covering all subfields of philosophy. Most uniquely, Dao does not only focus on the comparison of Chinese and Western philosophy; it also publishes articles on the relation between Chinese philosophy and other Asian philosophies – such as Indian, Japanese, and Korean philosophy - and between Chinese philosophy and African and Islamic philosophy. Dao is thus a truly international and multicultural journal, which is also reflected by the various nationalities of the board members and the contributors to the journal. (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.
