Scope International Journal of Urban Sciences ( IJUS) is an interdisciplinary journal for scientific research and analytical methods on urban and regional studies. IJUS welcomes submissions in the areas of planning, transportation, economics, environment and geography, particularly those that consider the spatial context and focus on issues of theory, method, and public policy. In addition to research articles, IJUS accepts insight papers that are expressed in non-traditional formats such as commentaries on urban policy, extended book reviews, interventions to current academic debates, descriptions of major consultancy works, short case studies, and others. IJUS uses double blind peer review, and the time from submission to decision is normally within 90 days.

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.
