Pervasive and Mobile Computing - ISSN 1574-1192
Source Normalized Impact per Paper (SNIP): 1.45 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): 0.691 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: 2.725 (2019) 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.

5 Year Impact Factor: 2.683 (2019) Five-Year Impact Factor:
To calculate the five year Impact Factor, citations are counted in 2016 to the previous five years and divided by the source items published in the previous five years.

COVID-19 Note
The PMC Editorial Board realizes that inaccessibility to laboratory due to COVID-19 pandemic might have caused hardship for researchers to carry out real experimental work while preparing their manuscripts for submission to PMC journal. To accommodate the current situation, the Editorial Board encourages prospective authors to submit their manuscripts focusing on theoretical aspects and/or simulation based evaluation of proposed ideas.

Aims and Scope
As envisioned by Mark Weiser as early as 1991, pervasive computing systems and services have truly become integral parts of our daily lives. Tremendous developments in a multitude of technologies ranging from personalized and embedded smart devices (e.g., smartphones, sensors, wearables, IoTs, etc.) to ubiquitous connectivity, via a variety of wireless mobile communications and cognitive networking infrastructures, to advanced computing techniques (including edge, fog and cloud) and user-friendly middleware services and platforms have significantly contributed to the unprecedented advances in pervasive and mobile computing. Cutting-edge applications and paradigms have evolved, such as cyber-physical systems and smart environments (e.g., smart city, smart energy, smart transportation, smart healthcare, etc.) that also involve human in the loop through social interactions and participatory and/or mobile crowd sensing, for example. The goal of pervasive computing systems is to improve human experience and quality of life, without explicit awareness of the underlying communications and computing technologies.

The Pervasive and Mobile Computing Journal (PMC) is a high-impact, peer-reviewed technical journal that publishes high-quality scientific articles spanning theory and practice, and covering all aspects of pervasive and mobile computing and systems. Topics include, but not limited to:
