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.

Educational Research Review is a international journal aimed at researchers and various agencies interested to review studies in education and instruction at any level. The journal will accept meta-analytic reviews, narrative reviews and best-evidence syntheses.
Diverse types of reviews can be accepted:
• Research reviews: Reviews aimed at comparing research on similar or related topics.
• Theoretical reviews: Reviews able to critically describe the evolution of theories and the way they are understood in different contexts.
• Methodological reviews: Reviews devoted to methods and methodologies used in education.
• Thematic reviews: Reviews based on description of particular areas of the literature, or particular educational approaches or learning models.
• Theoretical contributions - state-of-the-art papers relating issues, comparisons, and analyses to the application of methods and models to the educational process.
• Research critiques - reviews on selected educational topics reflecting implications for the field of education.
• Forum Papers - shorter articles presenting new ideas, or responses to published material stimulating debate, but well founded in the existing literature.
• Instructional techniques - reports on instructional techniques when the use of adequate controls demonstrates the validity of the findings.
