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.

The primary goal of Experimental Eye Research is to publish original research papers on all aspects of experimental biology of the eye and ocular tissues that seek to define the mechanisms of normal function and/or disease. Studies of ocular tissues that encompass the disciplines of cell biology, developmental biology, genetics, molecular biology, physiology, biochemistry, biophysics, immunology or microbiology are most welcomed. Manuscripts that are purely clinical or in a surgical area of ophthalmology are not appropriate for submission to Experimental Eye Research and if received will be returned without review.
Most manuscripts published are original articles describing new research findings. For review purposes the journal is divided into four sections: Aqueous Humor and Blood Flow; Cornea and Ocular Surface; Lens; and Retina and Choroid, each with their own section editors and a roster of Executive Editors that have expertise in these specialized areas.
The Journal also publishes review articles, short communications, letters-to-the-editor, and methods papers. Full descriptions of each of these types of articles are detailed in the Guide for Authors.
Research areas include: Production and circulation of ocular fluids and the dysfunction of these pathways underlying ocular disease Angiogenesis, neovascularization and regulation of blood flow in the eye in health and disease Cell biology, molecular biology, biochemistry, and biophysics of the eye or eye tissue Developmental and regenerative biology of the eye Human and molecular genetics studies of inherited eye diseases Gene therapy and neuroprotection targeted at preventing inherited ocular diseases Neural and general physiology of the visual process
