Scope Steel & Composite Structures, An International Journal, provides and excellent publication channel which reports the up-to-date research developments in the steel structures and steel-concrete composite structures, and FRP plated structures from the international steel community. The research results reported in this journal address all the aspects of theoretical and experimental research, including Buckling/Stability, Fatigue/Fracture, Fire Performance, Connections, Frames/Bridges, Plates/Shells, Composite Structural Components, Hybrid Structures, Fabrication/Maintenance, Design Codes, Dynamics/Vibrations, Nonferrous Metal Structures, Non-metalic plates, Analytical Methods. The Journal specially wishes to bridge the gap between the theoretical developments and practical applications for the benefits of both academic researchers and practicing engineers. In this light, contributions from the practicing engineers are especially welcome.

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.
