SNIP measures contextual citation impact by weighting citations based on the total number of citations in a subject field.
SJR is a prestige metric based on the idea that not all citations are the same. SJR uses a similar algorithm as the Google page rank; it provides a quantitative and a qualitative measure of the journal’s impact.
The Impact Factor measures the average number of citations received in a particular year by papers published in the journal during the two preceding years.

Colloid and Interface Science Communications is a primary research journal that is dedicated to the rapid dissemination of short communications and brief review articles, covering recent developments, on new fundamental concepts, research findings, and topical applications at the forefront of the increasingly interdisciplinary area of colloid and interface science.
The short communications should have a maximum total length of 4,000 words and a (combined) maximum of 8 normal-sized figures and/or tables is allowed (so for instance 3 tables and 5 figures). The reviews can have 10,000 words and a combined maximum of 10 figures and/or tables.
Emphasis is given to novel experimental techniques and theoretical/computational methods for advanced studies of interfacial interactions and design of colloidal materials, including
- Colloidal solutions, self-assembly, surfactant and polymer mesophases
- Interfacial processes, adsorption, capillarity, wetting, and microfluidics
- Soft matter, membranes, coatings, films, gels, and foams
- Nanoparticles, nanotubes, and low dimensionality materials
- Colloidal nanostructures and micro-mesoporous materials
- Biointerfaces, biocolloids, biofilms, and biomembranes
The scope of applications include nanomaterials, energy production and storage, biotechnologies, nanomedicine, drug delivery, environmental sustainability, adsorption separations, catalysis, electrochemistry, food, pharmaceutical, personal care, and cosmetic products.
