Scope Waves in Random and Complex Media (formerly Waves in Random Media) is a broad interdisciplinary journal that reports theoretical, applied and experimental research related to any wave phenomena. The Journal is relevant to scientists and engineers working in the field of wave propagation, scattering and imaging in random or complex media. Papers on theoretical developments, experimental results and analytical/numerical studies are considered for publication as well as deterministic problems when also linked to random or complex media. Topics include studies of waves in random and/or complex media, such as tissue or metamaterials, nonlinear, chaotic or fractal media, as well as relevant inverse problems.

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.
