How to publish in this journal


The International Journal of Production Research (IJPR), published since 1961, is a well-established, highly successful and leading journal reporting manufacturing, production and operations management research. IJPR is published 24 times a year and includes papers on innovation management, design of products, manufacturing processes, production and logistics systems. Production economics, the essential behaviour of production resources and systems as well as the complex decision problems that arise in design, management and control of production and logistics systems are considered. Manufacturing strategy, policy formulation and evaluation, and the contribution of new technologies are also major concerns of the journal. Fundamental techniques developed in computer, decision and mathematical sciences which can be used in the design, measurement or operation of production and logistics systems are also considered.

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.

Total Documents

Evolution of the number of published documents. All types of documents are considered, including citable and non citable documents.

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.

% International Collaboration

International Collaboration accounts for the articles that have been produced by researchers from several countries. The chart shows the ratio of a journal's documents signed by researchers from more than one country; that is including more than one country address.

Citable documents 
Non-citable documents

Not every article in a journal is considered primary research and therefore "citable", this chart shows the ratio of a journal's articles including substantial research (research articles, conference papers and reviews) in three year windows vs. those documents other than research articles, reviews and conference papers.
