Scope Saline Systems is an Open Access, peer-reviewed, online journal considering high quality manuscripts on all aspects of basic and applied research on halophilic organisms and saline environments, from gene systems to ecosystems. Saline Systems covers a wide array of coastal and inland saline environments, including natural lakes, marshes, springs, lagoons, estuaries, and man-made solar pans. The diverse microflora and macroflora and fauna of these environments present unique opportunities for basic research and biotechnology, while increasing human activities and climate change pose conservation and management challenges. Saline Systems" specific areas of interest include the systems biology, molecular biology, and environmental biology of halophilic and halotolerant organisms.

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.

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.

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.
