Scope Research and development (R&D) and innovation today absorb very considerable resources. These activities have great influence on the policies of industrial firms, government departments, universities and nations. Research Policy is a multi-disciplinary journal devoted to the policy and management problems posed by innovation, R&D, technology and science, and related activities concerned with the acquisition of knowledge (learning) and its exploitation. Its papers examine the interaction between these activities and economic, social, political and institutional processes. Many of the papers are empirically focused but others are more theoretical.

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.
