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.

Estuarine, Coastal and Shelf Science is an international multidisciplinary journal devoted to the analysis of saline water phenomena ranging from the outer edge of the continental shelf to the upper limits of the tidal zone. The journal provides a unique forum, unifying the multidisciplinary approaches to the study of the oceanography of estuaries, coastal zones, and continental shelf seas. It features original research papers, review papers and short communications treating such disciplines as zoology, botany, geology, sedimentology, physical oceanography. Data reports of mainly local interest are discouraged.
Research areas include:
• Numerical modelling of estuarine and coastal marine ecosystems • Species distribution in relation to varying environments • Effects of waste disposal • Groundwater runoff and Chemical processes • Estuarine and fjord circulation patterns • Meteorological and oceanic forcing of semi-enclosed and continental shelf water masses • Sea-surface and sea-bed processes • Estuarine and coastal sedimentary processes and geochemistry • Brackish water and lagoon phenomena • Transitional waters
