Scope Acta Geologica Slovaca (AGEOS) is an international peer-reviewed journal published by the Comenius University in Bratislava and is available both in printed and open-access electronic version. It accepts original research papers, review articles, and short contributions from the all branches of geology (e.g., geophysics, geochemistry, hydrogeology, engineering geology, geology of deposits, mineralogy, palaeontology, petrology, sedimentology, stratigraphy, structural geology, tectonic geomorphology, tectonics, and related fields). Since 2016, only English written papers are accepted. The AGEOS ensures objective and fair peer review of the manuscript by two or three referees. The identity of the referees can be left to their discretion. The final decision concerning the acceptance or rejection of a paper rests with the Editorial Board and acceptance is based on quality alone. Articles accepted for publication are usually published in order of submission. The journal is published in full colour version. Acta Geologica Slovaca was established in June 2009 and replaced the Acta Geologica Universitatis Comenianae magazine which publishing was cancelled in 2007

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.
