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.

Cytotherapy is the Official Journal of the International Society for Cellular Therapy (ISCT).
The journal brings readers the latest developments in the fast moving field of cellular therapy in man. This includes cell therapy for cancer, immune disorders, inherited diseases, tissue repair and regenerative medicine. The journal covers the science, translational development and treatment with variety of cell types including hematopoietic stem cells, immune cells (dendritic cells, NK, cells, T cells, antigen presenting cells) mesenchymal stromal cells, adipose cells, nerve, muscle, vascular and endothelial cells, and induced pluripotential stem cells. We also welcome manuscripts on subcellular derivatives such as exosomes. A specific focus is on translational research that brings cell therapy to the clinic. Cytotherapy publishes original papers, reviews, position papers editorials, commentaries and letters to the editor. We welcome "Protocols in Cytotherapy" bringing standard operating procedure for production specific cell types for clinical use within the reach of the readership.
The journal's scope covers:
- Biological science of cells for therapy
- Technical aspects of cell processing and transplantation
- Clinical cell therapy trials
- Regulatory and ethical aspects
