Scope Cytopathology is a well-established diagnostic sub-specialty of pathology. Instead of using surgically removed tissue to arrive at a diagnosis it attempts to identify diagnostic and prognostic information from dispersed cells obtained by non-invasive or minimally invasive techniques. An example, and its greatest success story thus far, is the role it has played in the battle against cervical cancer. Indeed, the Pap smear introduced by George Papanicolaou has contributed immensely to the early diagnosis and significantly decreased mortality of cervical cancer.

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.
