SNIP measures contextual citation impact by weighting citations based on the total number of citations in a subject field.
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.
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.

Water Resources and Economics addresses the financial and economic dimensions associated with water resources use and governance, across different economic sectors like agriculture, energy, industry, shipping, recreation and urban and rural water supply, at local, regional and transboundary scale.
Topics of interest include (but are not restricted to) the economics of:
- Aquatic ecosystem services
- Blue economy
- Climate change and flood risk management
- Climate smart agriculture
- Coastal management
- Droughts and water scarcity
- Environmental flows
- Food, water, energy nexus
- Groundwater management
- Hydropower generation
- Hydrological risks and uncertainties
- Marine resources
- Nature-based solutions
- Resource recovery
- River restoration
- Storm water harvesting
- Transboundary water allocation
- Urban water management
- Wastewater treatment
- Watershed management
- Water health risks
- Water pollution
- Water quality management
- Water security
- Water stress
- Water technology innovation
The journal is targeted at economists, engineers, natural and social scientists interested in water resources management. Papers should deal with the changing value of water in its different uses and the evaluation of economic tradeoffs, aiming for the creation of water resource management strategies that are ecologically, socially and economically sustainable.
The other specialist title in the series is Water Resources and Industry, which focuses on the role that industry plays in the exploitation, management and treatment of water resources.
