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.

Please do not contact the Editors for a status check of your manuscript as they handle a large number of submissions and unfortunately cannot answer all status requests. Please rather use the Track your submission option for this purpose. If your paper has been sent out for review, the Editors have to wait for the invited reviewers to agree to review the paper. Once the reviewers have kindly agreed to review the paper, they are requested to deliver their reviews within 21 days, however delays do occur unfortunately and this is not always possible. The Editors are aware of delayed manuscripts and reminders are sent to the reviewers of delayed papers to ask them to please upload their reviews at their earliest convenience. Once the Editors receive the required number of reviews they are then able to swiftly make their decision on a manuscript.
Authors can rest assured that Editors are using all their resources to make the revision and publication process as swift as possible.
