Scope The demand for health care will surely continue to increase in the future. How to finance the cost of that care will remain on the policy agenda. In the public domain, expenditures on health services will always compete with other uses of tax funds, such as defence and education; the debate about the magnitude of the government involvement in health care is here to stay. In the private sector, payment for health services not covered by government - in the form of insurance premiums and direct payment - competes with other consumption spending and saving. The problem of how to finance health care in either sector must be addressed, with general tax financing, social insurance, and private financing as alternatives. (source)

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.
