Scope The Journal of European Public Policy (JEPP) has established itself as one of the flagship journals in the study of public policy, European politics and the EU and aims to provide a comprehensive and definitive source of analytical, theoretical and methodological articles in these fields. Focusing on the dynamics of public policy in Europe, the journal encourages a wide range of social science approaches, both qualitative and quantitative. JEPP defines European public policy widely and welcomes innovative ideas and approaches. The main areas covered by the Journal are as follows: -theoretical and methodological approaches to the study of public policy in Europe and elsewhere -national public policy developments and processes in Europe -comparative studies of public policy within Europe -the public policy interface between nation states and the EU -the EU: its institutions, political processes and policies -the EU as an actor in regional and global affairs. In addition, JEPP publishes a Research Agenda Section and a Debate Section (edited by Michael Blauberger, University of Salzburg, Austria). Contributions to the Research Agenda Section are expected to review the state of the art in a particular field of interest and develop an innovative research agenda. The Debate Section comprises two or three brief articles, which take contrary or complementary standpoints on a common issue. The short debate format is meant to particularly encourage submissions on topical and controversial issues.

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.
