Introduction

For a long time Journal Citation Reports were the only way to determine journals ranking. However, Scopus (another very large indexing source) have developed similar indicators to rank journals based on citations.

SCImago Journal Rank (SJR) is a prestige metric.  Calculations for this indicator are based on the principle that citations from high profile journals weigh more than journals with low impact.

 To find this indicator, go to:

Library homepage > Search > E-databases > Scopus > Click on Sources in the top horisontal menu bar.
 

About SJR

The SJR indicator assigns different values to citations depending on the importance of the journals where they come from. This way, citations coming from highly important journals will be more valuable and hence will provide more prestige to the journals receiving them.
