Scope The journal aims to make complex, policy-related analysis of climate change issues accessible to a wide audience, including those actors involved in: research and the commissioning of policy-relevant research policy and strategy formulation/implementation by local and national governments; the interactions and impacts of climate policies and strategies on business and society, and their responses, in different nations and sectors; international negotiations including, but not limited to, the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change, the Kyoto Protocol, other processes. Climate Policy thus aims to build on its academic base so as to inject new insights and facilitate informed debate within and between, these diverse constituencies.

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.
