Alternative journal metrics tools are available in the Scopus database.
- CiteScore is defined as "the number of citations received by a journal in one year to documents published in the three previous years, divided by the number of documents indexed in Scopus published in those same three years."
- SJR (SCImago Journal Rank) "is weighted by the prestige of a journal. Subject field, quality, and reputation of the journal have a direct effect on the value of a citation."
- SNIP (Source Normalized Impact per Paper) "measures a source's contextual citation impact by weighting citations based on the total number of citations in a subject field. It helps you make a direct comparison of sources in different subject fields."
