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 use of computers is firmly established in geotechnical engineering and continues to grow rapidly in both engineering practice and academe. The development of advanced numerical techniques and constitutive modeling, in conjunction with rapid developments in computer hardware, enables problems to be tackled that were unthinkable even a few years ago.
Computers and Geotechnics provides an up-to-date reference for engineers and researchers engaged in computer aided analysis, research and design in geotechnical engineering. The journal is intended for an expeditious dissemination of advanced computer applications across a broad range of soil and rock mechanics topics. Contributions on advances in numerical algorithms, constitutive models and probabilistic methods are especially encouraged. Submissions describing computer modelling of laboratory tests, field monitoring, hydrocarbon extraction and design are welcome if they demonstrate novel computational methods and/or constitutive models. Traditional mining engineering topics and "soft computing" applications are usually discouraged, since they align more closely with other journals.
