Source Normalized Impact per Paper (SNIP): 1.089 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): 0.606 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: 4.098 (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.

Spectrochimica Acta, Part A: Molecular and Biomolecular Spectroscopy (SAA) is an interdisciplinary journal which spans from basic to applied aspects of optical spectroscopy in chemistry, medicine, biology, and materials science.

The journal publishes original scientific papers that feature high-quality spectroscopic data and analysis. From the broad range of optical spectroscopies, the emphasis is on electronic, vibrational or rotational spectra of molecules, rather than on spectroscopy based on magnetic moments.
Criteria for publication in SAA are novelty, uniqueness, and outstanding quality. Routine applications of spectroscopic techniques and computational methods are not appropriate.
Topics of particular interest of Spectrochimica Acta Part A include, but are not limited to:

  • Spectroscopy and dynamics of bioanalytical, biomedical, environmental, and atmospheric sciences,
  • Novel experimental techniques or instrumentation for molecular spectroscopy,
  • Novel theoretical and computational methods,
  • Novel applications in photochemistry and photobiology,
  • Novel interpretational approaches as well as advances in data analysis based on electronic or vibrational spectroscopy.
