Scope Today, nuclear reactors generate nearly one quarter of the electricity in nations representing two thirds of humanity, and other nuclear applications are integral to many aspects of the world economy. Nuclear fission remains an important option for meeting energy requirements and maintaining a balanced worldwide energy policy; with major countries expanding nuclear energy"s role and new countries poised to introduce it, the key issue is not whether the use of nuclear technology will grow worldwide, even if public opinion concerning safety, the economics of nuclear power, and waste disposal issues adversely affect the general acceptance of nuclear power, but whether it will grow fast enough to make a decisive contribution to the global imperative of sustainable development.

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.
