Scope The journal is dedicated to the publication of scholarly contributions in areas of data management such as database system technology and information systems, including their architectures and applications. Further, the journal’s scope is restricted to areas of data management that are covered by the combined expertise of the journal’s editorial board. Submissions with a substantial theory component are welcome, but the VLDB Journal expects such submissions also to embody a systems component. In relation to data mining, the journal will handle submissions where systems issues play a significant role. Factors that we use to determine whether a data mining paper is within scope include: The submission targets systems issues in relation to data mining, e.g., by covering integration with a database engine or with other data management functionality. The submission’s contributions build on (rather than simply cite) work already published in database outlets, e.g., VLDBJ, ACM TODS, PVLDB, ACM SIGMOD, IEEE ICDE, EDBT. The journal's editorial board has the necessary expertise on the submission's topic. Traditional, stand-alone data mining papers that lack the above or similar characteristics are out of scope for this journal. Criteria similar to the above are applied to submission from other areas, e.g., information retrieval and geographical information systems.

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.

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.
