Scope

The Journal of The Royal Society of Western Australia is a peer-reviewed journal that publishes original scientific research with an emphasis on local science. The Journal has a broad ranging scope that covers any branch of the natural and physical sciences as well as anthropology and archaeology. It publishes research papers, review articles, short notes and letters of relevance to Western Australian scientists, although the research need not necessarily have been conducted in this State. Special issues with collected papers on a selected topic within the scope of the Journal are occasionally published. The Journal will consider overviews of any subject in the natural or physical sciences with the general membership of the Society in mind, and analyses of topical controversial issues in Western Australia. Prospective authors of such papers should consult the Honorary Editor for further advice. Join the conversation about this journal

SJR

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.
