Scope Systematic and Applied Acarology (SAA) is an international journal of the Systematic and Applied Acarology Society (SAAS). The journal is intended as a publication outlet for all acarologists in the world. There is no page charge for publishing in SAA. If the authors have funds to publish, they can pay US$20 per page to enable their papers published for open access. SAA publishes papers reporting results of original research on any aspects of mites and ticks. Due to the recent increase in submissions, SAA editors will be more selective in manuscript evaluation: (1) encouraging more high quality non-taxonomic papers to address the balance between taxonomic and non-taxonomic papers, and (2) discouraging single species description (see new special issues for single new species description) while giving priority to high quality systematic papers on comparative treatments and revisions of multiple taxa. In addition to review papers and research articles (over 4 printed pages), we welcome short correspondence (up to 4 printed pages) for condensed version of short papers, comments on other papers, data papers (with one table or figure) and short reviews or opinion pieces. The correspondence format will save space by omitting the abstract, key words, and major headings such as Introduction.

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.
