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.

Published on behalf of the International Energy Initiative, Energy for Sustainable Development is the journal for decision makers, managers, consultants, policy makers, planners and researchers in both government and non-government organizations. It publishes original research and reviews about energy in developing countries, sustainable development, energy resources, technologies, policies and interactions.
Energy for Sustainable Development content is also available through HINARI, AGORA AND OARE.
The board also wants to promote the publication of articles on, or that are relevant to, energy issues in developing countries and on North-South and South-South cooperation in energy technology development and application. The Board considers the publication of highly specialized work more appropriate to other professional journals. The criteria for acceptance of the papers in Energy for Sustainable Development are therefore quality of the work and its presentation and breadth of interest, irrespective of whether the paper reports research or development, theory or experiment, original work or review.
