International Journal of Stem Cells (Int J Stem Cells), a peer-reviewed open access journal, principally aims to provide a forum for investigators in the field of stem cell biology to present their research findings and share their visions and opinions. Int J Stem Cells covers all aspects of stem cell biology including basic, clinical and translational research on genetics, biochemistry, and physiology of various types of stem cells including embryonic, adult and induced stem cells. Reports on epigenetics, genomics, proteomics, metabolomics of stem cells are welcome as well. Int J Stem Cells also publishes review articles, technical reports and treatise on ethical 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.

Total Documents

Evolution of the number of published documents. All types of documents are considered, including citable and non citable documents.

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.

Citable documents 
Non-citable documents

Not every article in a journal is considered primary research and therefore "citable", this chart shows the ratio of a journal's articles including substantial research (research articles, conference papers and reviews) in three year windows vs. those documents other than research articles, reviews and conference papers.
