Scope Manufacturing industries throughout the world are changing very rapidly. New concepts and methods are being developed and exploited to enable efficient and effective manufacturing. Existing manufacturing processes are being improved to meet the requirements of lean and agile manufacturing. The aim of the Journal of Engineering Manufacture is to provide a focus for these developments in engineering manufacture by publishing original papers and review papers covering technological and scientific research, developments and management implementation in manufacturing. Contributions are welcomed in the broad areas of processes, systems and management relevant to engineering manufacture. Articles may be Research Papers, Reviews, Technical Notes, or Short Communications.

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.

External Cites per Doc 
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.
