Source Normalized Impact per Paper (SNIP): 1.496 Source Normalized Impact per Paper (SNIP):
SNIP measures contextual citation impact by weighting citations based on the total number of citations in a subject field.
SCImago Journal Rank (SJR): 1.021 SCImago Journal Rank (SJR):
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.
Impact Factor: 2.858 (2017) Impact Factor:
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.

JGE: a journal for map-based geochemistry.

The journal is dedicated to the publication of research studies that cover new developments in the application of analytical geochemistry and geoinformatics. Themes considered by the journal include:

• geochemical exploration and the genesis of mineral deposits
• environmental geochemistry and geology including metal migration and accumulation processes in the near-surface environment and impacts on human health
• geochemical baseline mapping, urban geochemistry, and map-based environmental geochemistry, including site characterization and remediation of brownfield sites
• metal transfer processes in large-scale mineralized areas
• chemical and transport processes for basinal fluids associated with mineral deposits
• interdisciplinary studies at the boundaries between organic bio-geochemistry, metal transport, and sites of mineral accumulation
• evaluation of the effects of historical mining activities on the surface environment
• other related studies

To create a platform for the repository of map-based geochemistry data, a new section entitled "For the record", is designated for publishing stand-alone geochemical mapping results.

In order to manage manuscripts from all fields of study, the chief editors have divided the journal into topical sections: studies related to geoinformatics, geochemical exploration (excluding petroleum and organic geochemistry), geochemical baseline mapping, urban geochemistry, and map-based environmental geochemistry, including site characterization and remediation, are managed by Prof. Stefano Albanese; studies involving applications of geochemistry to ore genesis, the environment and to human health, geochemical distribution processes in mineralized areas affecting the surface environment, and geochemometrics are managed by Dr. Robert Ayuso.

To further help in the delivery of high quality papers covering the breadth of themes to the journal, associate editors are assigned to individual papers within their own expertise from either editor.
