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.

Experimental Cell Research promotes the understanding of cell biology by circulating novel and significant insights on experimental studies on the general organisation and activity of cells. Our scope ranges from the molecular level to cell-cell interactions and differentiation, these may be areas such as:
- Cellular events such as apoptosis, programmed cell death, cell proliferation and differentiation, the cell cycle and cancer
- Cellular phenomena such as cell-cell and cell-matrix interactions, subcellular organization and cell motility and migration
- Molecular processes including microRNA, DNA repair and RNA processing
- Genetic studies in chromatin, chromosome structure and dynamics, epigenetics, nuclear import-export and gene regulation
- Cell biology relating to the cytoskeleton, intracellular trafficking, signal transduction
- Stem cell research, developmental biology and mammalian genetic models
Experimental Cell Research currently has a time to first decision of 3 weeks; and over 2,000,000 downloads in 2015.
