Scope Forum Italicum is a peer-reviewed international journal of Italian Studies based at Stony Brook University, NY, USA, and founded by M. Ricciardelli in 1967. The journal is intended as a meeting-place where scholars, critics, and teachers can present their views on the literature, language, and culture of Italy and other countries in relation to Italy. Young and hitherto unpublished scholars are encouraged to contribute their critical works. ANVUR (Agenzia Nazionale di Valutazione del Sistema Universitario e della Ricerca) has now awarded Forum Italicum its highest possible ranking, Classe A, in the area of Italian Literature, Critical Theory and Comparative Literature. The policy of Forum Italicum will remain flexible in order to keep the journal an open meeting-place where scholarly writings together with other contributions of general Italian interest can give the reader a fresh, open outlook on subjects pertaining to the heritage of Italy. Contributions should normally be in English or Italian.

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.
