Scope Building Acoustics is a quarterly peer-reviewed journal concerned with acoustics in the built environment. The goal of the journal is to be the main publishing option for authors writing on building acoustics and related topics, as well as a forum to integrate the relevant research community of the field. Potential readers are scientists, consultants, engineers, architects, builders and representatives of public bodies carrying out research and development in the field of acoustical aspects of buildings. There is an emphasis on the application of new knowledge and the provision of information useful to the practitioner. Interdisciplinary studies, correlating the acoustical aspects of buildings with their thermal or lighting performance, are also welcome.

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.
