Scope The Journal of The Franklin Institute has an established reputation for publishing high-quality papers in the field of engineering and interdisciplinary mathematics. Its current direction is on information and communication systems and networks, learning algorithms, signal processing, imaging, sensing, genomic, and control theory. The editors and the editorial board encourage authors to put forth evolving new topics for publication provided they fall broadly within the scope of the journal. Special focus issues with a strong conceptual foundation in newly evolving topics are planned for the future. All submitted papers are peer-reviewed. The Journal will publish original research papers and research review papers of substance.

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.

External Cites per Doc 
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.
