#CiteScore: a new #metric to help you choose the right journal

concept of teamwork


Elsevier’s new metrics provide comprehensive, transparent, current insights into journal impact. Impact is important when it comes to deciding which journal to publish in. But it’s impossible to get a true picture of impact using a single metric alone.

Elsevier has launched CiteScore metrics, a new standard that gives a more comprehensive, transparent and current view of a journal’s impact – one that will help you decide where to submit your next publication.

CiteScore metrics are part of the Scopus basket of journal metrics that includes SNIP (Source Normalized Impact per Paper), SJR (SCImago Journal Rank), citation- and document- counts and percentage cited. The integration of these metrics into Scopus provides insights into the citation impact of more than 22,220 titles.
