Scope Historical Records of Australian Science publishes peer-reviewed articles and book reviews on the history of science, pure and applied, in Australia and the southwest Pacific, biographical memoirs of deceased Fellows of the Academy, and an annual bibliography of the history of Australian science. It is published in June and December. The journal began in 1966 as an irregular publication under the title Records of the Australian Academy of Science, the present name being adopted in 1980. Since then, the journal has appeared on a regular basis, at first annually and, since 1991, twice a year. Until 2004, four issues were deemed to make up a volume, and since 2004, the two parts issued each year are deemed to make up a volume. The online content extends back to Volume 1, Number 1, 1966.

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.
