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.

Building and Environment is an international journal that publishes original research papers and review articles related to building science and human interaction with the built environment.
The Journal invites research articles conveying robust, tested knowledge on:
•technologies and integrated systems for high performance buildings and cities
•thermal, acoustic, visual, air quality building science and human impacts
•tools for the design and decision-making community, including tested computational, economic, educational and policy tools.
•solutions for mitigating environmental impacts and achieving low carbon, sustainable built environments.
The Journal is focused on new knowledge, rigorously verified with measurement and analysis, related to the environmental performance of buildings in different scales, ranging from cities, communities, buildings, to building systems and assemblies.
