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 current turnaround time to a first decision is 39 days, with an approximate acceptance rate of 12%. To avoid unnecessary delay for authors, the editor might decide to return the paper to the author(s) before full review if she/ he determines that the paper is not suitable for the journal. The decision is always motivated.
The journal also offers authors the possibility of choosing a "No Revision" channel in which the editors take a final publication decision upon receiving the first set of referee reports. The submission should then be accompanied by a cover letter specifying explicitly that authors chose this channel.
International Economics also offers an informal cascading for papers which were marginally rejected from top field or general purpose journals. Authors could require the editors of International Economics to consider reports and editorial decisions taken within the last six months from such journals. The submission should then be accompanied by (i) a cover letter indicating that the paper is submitted through the informal cascading option, (ii) the previous referee reports and (iii) a document describing how the authors have incorporated the comments of the referees and editors of the journal which earlier rejected the paper.
A prize is awarded by a scientific committee to the best paper during the calendar year.
International Economics encourages young researchers to submit their work. The journal will also organize special issues to emphasize new research directions. The journal is indexed by EconLit.
