Scope Emerging challenges to infrastructure systems, industry, government, and society exhibit complexity, interconnectedness, uncertainties, and a variety of stakeholder perspectives. The Springer journal Environment, Systems & Decisions addresses diverse interests and perspectives of infrastructure owners, engineers, environmental professionals, regulators, policy makers, scholars, educators, and managers through technical articles, editorials, and review articles. The journal advances theory, methodology, and applications to address these challenges from a systems view, emphasizing connectedness of humans, machines, and the environment. Methods that arise in the physical, social, and information sciences and engineering are integrated or coordinated. Submitted manuscripts should address interrelated social, technological, environmental, and economic systems with attention to performance, risk, costs, sustainability, and resilience. The ESD journal thus provides a catalyst for research and innovation in cross-disciplinary and transdisciplinary methods, featuring decision analysis, systems engineering, risk assessment and risk management, resilience analysis, policy analysis, data science, and communication. Manuscripts in a variety of application domains (engineering, military, environment, ecology, health, regulation, policy, technologies, logistics, manufacturing, etc.) are invited, particularly to feature problems and solutions that cross domains and envision future systems and processes.

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.
