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.

To calculate the five year Impact Factor, citations are counted in 2014 to the previous five years and divided by the source items published in the previous five years.

Computers in Biology and Medicine is a medium of international communication of the revolutionary advances being made in the application of the computer to the fields of bioscience and medicine. The Journal encourages the exchange of important research, instruction, ideas and information on all aspects of the rapidly expanding area of computer usage in these fields. The Journal will focus on such areas as (1) Analysis of Biomedical Systems: Solutions of Equations; (2) Synthesis of Biomedical Systems: Simulations; (3) Special Medical Data Processing Methods; (4) Special Purpose Computers and Clinical Data Processing for Real Time, Clinical and Experimental Use; and (5) Medical Diagnosis and Medical Record Processing. Also included are the fields of (6) Biomedical Engineering; and (7) Medical Informatics as well as Bioinformatics. The journal is expanding to include (8) Medical Applications of the Internet and World Wide Web; (9) Human Genomics; (10) Proteomics; and (11) Functional Brain Studies.
The publication policy is to publish (1) New, original articles that have been appropriately reviewed by competent scientific people, (2) Surveys of developments in the fields, (3) Pedagogical papers covering specific areas of interest, and (4) Book reviews pertinent to the field.
Articles which examine the following topics of special interest are being featured in Computers in Biology and Medicine: Computer aids to the analysis of biochemical systems, computer aids to biocontrol-systems engineering, neuronal simulation by digital-computer gating components, automatic computer analysis of pictures of biological and medical importance, use of computers by commercial pharmaceutical and chemical organizations, radiation-dosage computers, and accumulating and recalling individual medical records, real-time languages, interfaces to patient monitors, clinical chemistry equipment, data handling and display in nuclear medicine and therapy.
