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.

Applied Catalysis B: Environmental welcomes original, novel and high-impact contributions from the following fields:
- Catalytic elimination of environmental pollutants, such as nitrogen oxides, carbon monoxide, sulfur compounds, chlorinated and other organic compounds, and soot emitted from stationary or mobile sources
- Basic understanding of catalysts used in environmental pollution abatement, especially as applied to industrial processes
- All aspects of preparation, characterization, activation, deactivation and regeneration of novel and commercially applicable environmental catalysts
- New catalytic routes and processes for the production of clean energy, such as in hydrogen generation via catalytic fuel processing; and new catalysts and electrocatalysts for fuel cells
- Catalytic reactions in which wastes are converted to useful products
- Clean manufacturing replacing toxic chemicals with environmentally friendly catalysts
- Scientific aspects of photocatalytic processes and basic understanding of photocatalysts as applied to environmental problems
- New catalytic combustion technologies and catalysts
The journal will accept original Research Papers, Reviews and Letters to the Editor. Papers dealing with reactions and processes aimed at the production of commercial products and the remaining aspect of catalysis should be directed to Applied Catalysis A: General. Enzymatic papers should be directed to Journal of Molecular Catalysis B.
