Source Normalized Impact per Paper (SNIP): 1.856 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): 2.604 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: 4.857 (2016) 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.

Description

AIMS
Soil Biology & Biochemistry publishes original, scientifically challenging research articles of international significance that describe and explain biological processes occurring in soil. These include the possible applications of such knowledge to issues of soil and environmental quality - insofar as such studies inform our understanding of the role of soil biology and biochemistry in mediating soil functions, agricultural sustainability and ecosystem services. The ecology and biochemical processes of soil organisms, their effects on the environment and their interactions with plants are major topics. The applications of new molecular, microscopic and analytical techniques to understanding and explaining population and community dynamics is of great interest. The journal also publishes state-of-the-art reviews of contemporary research that present significant and novel hypotheses, as well as comments and arguments about specific and often controversial aspects of life in the soil.

SCOPE
The scope of Soil Biology & Biochemistry is wide and embraces accounts of recent original research on any aspect of the biology and biochemistry of soils. Some of the subjects that are receiving increasing attention are: novel molecular approaches to explore community dynamics and processes and provide bioassays for soil phenomena; modelling of soil biological and biochemical processes; mitigation and adaption to climate change; carbon storage and soil organic matter dynamics; effects of introduced genetically modified organisms; application and outcomes of biotechnology on the soil environment and its biological functions; biological farming; role of soil biota in ecological engineering; microbial and plant signalling mechanisms; effects of invasive species; soil structure and biota interactions; and relationships between the biota and soil physicochemical properties.
