Scope The Journal of Innovation in Health Informatics aims to provide information, help and guidance to all those concerned with information technology and information management in health care, both nationally and internationally. Informatics is a new and exciting discipline, cutting across medicine, nursing, computing, technology, communications, education, statistics, psychology and sociology, with its primary purpose being the application of information and communications technology to support health care. The core issues for the journal are: engaging the patient (and where appropriate their carer) as an effective participant in their own care (consumer health informatics); using technology at the point of care and ubiquitously (m-Health/e-Health); community based interventions including e-health, telemedicine and social care informatics; improving the quality and use of routinely collected data for quality improvement and research; data visualisation and analytics; utilising linked, large, and big data from health and the wider community to promote health, predict and model disease and care; information governance, privacy and confidentiality. health informatics as an innovative discipline, creating new knowledge and the potential for new outputs from data and information; health informatics as boundary-spanning discipline, working with health and social care; management and information technology. Contemporary issues for the journal are: understanding why people seek health care and equity in service provision (and the roles of IT and information management in facilitating access and equity); methods and studies of making better use of longitudinal health data; implementing of systems across localities health systems; auditing the effectiveness of locality care (including comparative effectiveness research); interoperable information systems that support integrated care; information systems that can demonstrate the cost-effectiveness of services.

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.
