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.

To calculate the five year Impact Factor, citations are counted in 2014 to the previous five years and divided by the source items published in the previous five years.

Annals of Anatomy publish peer reviewed original articles as well as brief review articles. The journal is open to original papers covering a link between anatomy and areas such as
•developmental biology, neurobiology
•embryology** as well as
•modern imaging techniques
•evolution,** and especially also
Moreover, manuscripts dealing with all forms of anatomical teaching and new forms of curricula will be considered for publication. Priority will be given to experimental studies; merely descriptive studies will only be published if the Editors consider that they are of functional significance.
For more than a century the Annals of Anatomy have been one of the most famous and widespread journals on morphology. The journal is the official journal of the Anatomische Gesellschaft (Anatomical Society).
Transparent peer review process at Annals of Anatomy.
The comments provided by the reviewers very often considerably help to improve and strengthen a paper. However, currently only rarely public credit is given to this important contribution of the reviewers. In addition, the authors' response letter accompanying a revised version often contains important information which may be regarded as an added value to the final version of the manuscript. Therefore, the AANAT Editors decided that the non-confidential comments of the reviewers and the non-confidential authors' responses will be published as online supplementary material together with the final version of an eventually accepted article. Of course the reviewers' anonymity will be strictly preserved.
