Scope GFF is the journal of the Geological Society of Sweden. It is an international scientific journal that publishes papers in English covering the whole field of geology and palaeontology, i.e. petrology, mineralogy, stratigraphy, systematic palaeontology, palaeogeography, historical geology and Quaternary geology. Systematic descriptions of fossils, minerals and rocks are an important part of GFF"s publishing record. Papers on regional or local geology should deal with Balto-Scandian or Northern European geology, or with geologically related areas. Papers on geophysics, geochemistry, biogeochemistry, climatology and hydrology should have a geological context. Descriptions of new methods (analytical, instrumental or numerical), should be relevant to the broad scope of the 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.
