Journal of Quantitative Spectroscopy & Radiative Transfer

Journal of Quantitative Spectroscopy & Radiative Transfer - ISSN 0022-4073
Source Normalized Impact per Paper (SNIP): 1.353 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): 0.81 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: 2.468 (2020) 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.
