SCImago Journal & Country Rank

SCImago Journal & Country Rank

The SCImago Journal & Country Rank is a portal that includes journals and country scientific indicators developed from the information contained in the ScopusĀ® database (Elsevier B.V.). These indicators can be used to assess and analyze individual journals as well as countries and scientific domains. The main indicator is the SCImago Journal Rank (SJR) indicator , developed by the Spanish research group SCImago. This indicator shows the visibility of the journals contained in the ScopusĀ® database from 1996. The calculation is based on network analysis and is similar to the relevance ranking used in Google's search engine. Greater weight is given to citations coming from influential journals (in terms of citation traffic) in the network.
