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.

The Current Opinion journals were developed out of the recognition that it is increasingly difficult for specialists to keep up to date with the expanding volume of information published in their subject. In Current Opinion in Green and Sustainable Chemistry, we help the reader by providing in a systematic manner:
- The views of experts on current advances in Green and Sustainable Chemistry in a clear and readable form.
- Evaluations of the most interesting papers, annotated by experts, from the great wealth of original publications.
Division of the subject into sections
The subject Green and Sustainable Chemistry includes all chemical aspects along the life cycle of chemicals as well chemical products and materials e.g. resources, synthesis, use and after life issues. It aims on better understanding where and how chemistry itself can be made more sustainable and whereby chemistry can contribute to sustainability in general. Therefore, the journal it is divided into themed sections, each of which is reviewed once a year. The amount of space devoted to each section is related to its importance:
- Mineral and fossil resources and metals
- Biomass, bio-fuels and bioenergies
- CO2 capture, and chemistry
- Green solvents
- Green catalysis
- New synthetic methods
- Green processes and technologies
- Renewable energy and storage
- Sustainable recycling of molecules, materials and products
- Benign by Design
- New business models, ethics, legislation and economics
There is also a section that changes every year to reflect hot topics in the field.
Selection of topics to be reviewed
Section Editors, who are major authorities in the field, are appointed by the Editors of the journal. They divide their section into a number of topics, ensuring that the field is comprehensively covered and that all issues of current importance are emphasized. Section Editors commission reviews from authorities on each topic that they have selected.
Authors write short review articles in which they present recent developments in their subject, emphasizing the aspects that, in their opinion, are most important. In addition, they provide short annotations to the papers that they consider to be most interesting from all those published in their topic over the previous year.
Section Editors write a short overview at the beginning of the section to introduce the reviews and to draw the reader's attention to any particularly interesting developments.
