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.

Biophysical Chemistry publishes original work and reviews in the areas of chemistry and physics directly impacting biological phenomena. Quantitative analysis of the properties of biological macromolecules, biologically active molecules, macromolecular assemblies and cell components in terms of kinetics, thermodynamics, spatio-temporal organization, NMR and X-ray structural biology, as well as single-molecule detection represent a major focus of the journal. Theoretical and computational treatments of biomacromolecular systems, macromolecular interactions, regulatory control and systems biology are also of interest to the journal.
The journal publishes regular articles, letters and invited reviews. Manuscripts that fall outside the scopes and interests of the journal are returned to the Authors without in-depth review. Relevant manuscripts are reviewed expeditiously with decisions generally made within 3 weeks from receipt. Letters are short articles (6 printed pages maximum) reporting results of unusual timeliness and significance. Decisions on Letters are made within 1-2 weeks from receipt and publication is offered only to manuscripts requiring minor revision. Reviews are published by invitation from the Editors, but suggestions are welcome at any time. Authors can now submit supplementary material for online publication on ScienceDirect http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/journal/03014622. See our Guide for Authors http://www.elsevier.com/journals/biophysical-chemistry/0301-4622/guide-for-authors for more information.
