Scope Soil Research (formerly known as Australian Journal of Soil Research) is an international journal that aims to rapidly publish high-quality, novel research about fundamental and applied aspects of soil science. As well as publishing in traditional aspects of soil biology, soil physics and soil chemistry across terrestrial ecosystems, the journal welcomes manuscripts dealing with wider interactions of soils with the environment. Topics include, but are not limited to: Carbon, nutrient and other elemental cycling Land degradation, reclamation, remediation and rehabilitation Newly emerging fields and methods in soil science Pedology Plant–soil–microbe Interactions and feedbacks Soil biodiversity Soil fertility and plant nutrition Soil genesis Soil geography Soil mapping and evaluation Soil mechanics Soil mineralogy Soil tillage and management Soil-borne pathogens Soil–plant interactions and feedbacks Soils and food security Soils and global change Soil–water relations Terrestrial biogeochemistry Terrestrial ecosystem ecology Threats to and protection of soils.

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.
