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.

Current Opinion in Behavioral Sciences publishes short annotated reviews by leading experts on recent developments in the behavioral sciences.
The journal takes a unique and valuable approach in designating each special issue around a topic of scientific and/or societal interest, and then bringing together leading international experts studying that topic, but from diverse methodologies and perspectives, e.g.,
- human and animal laboratory testing
- survey and observational research
- behavioral and neuroscientific research with both healthy adults and special populations
- computational and genetic approaches
These experts write short reviews of recent (2-5 years) developments in the topic, as well as pointing out select individual papers of particular significance.
The journal is thus an important resource allowing researchers and educators to quickly gain an overview and rich understanding of complex and current issues in the behavioral sciences.
The journal consists of 6 issues per year. Four issues cover topics in the following recurring categories:
- Cognition and Perception
- Emotion, Motivation, Personality and Social Sciences
- Evolution, Development and Genetics
- Methodological, Computational and Translational Advances
In addition, 2 issues are allocated to Hot Topics.
