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.

The aim of Applied Ocean Research is to encourage the submission of papers that advance the state of knowledge in a range of topics relevant to ocean engineering. These topics include:
* Wave mechanics
* Fluid-structure interaction
* Structural dynamics
* Floating and moored system dynamics
* Structural mechanics
* Sea bed geophysics, soil mechanics and sedimentology
* Cable and riser mechanics and vortex-induced vibration
* Stochastic processes
* Safety and risk analysis
* Structural integrity and fatigue
* Safety and reliability
* Design of offshore structures
* Submarine pipeline design
* Ocean towing and installation
* Subsea engineering
* Control and application of remotely-operated vehicles and subsea intervention
* Ocean energy systems
It is important that all papers, particularly the very theoretical ones, should stress the practical importance and applicability of their contents. Purely theoretical papers with no application are discouraged.
