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.

Established in 1969, European Economic Review is one of the oldest general-interest economics journals for all of Europe. It is intended as a primary publication for theoretical and empirical research in all areas of economics. The purpose of the journal is to select articles that will have high relevance and impact in a wide range of topics. All work submitted to the journal should be original in motivation or modeling and be capable of replication.
The EER receives about 700 submissions each year and the editors aim to hand down editorial decision in a timely manner. The average turnaround time to first decision is about 60 days, with an approximate acceptance rate of 10% [http://journalinsights.elsevier.com/journals/0014-2921/review_speed]. To avoid unnecessary delays, a paper may be returned to the author before full review if the editors determine that it is not suitable for the journal. This decision is made in the interest of the author to avoid loss of valuable time. Please note that in all cases the submission fee is non-refundable. All materials required for replication (including computer programs and data sets) should be provided by the authors (see data policy link). The journal publishes 8 issues a year. Occasionally the EER organizes special issues or topical sections in regular issues to emphasize new research directions.
