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.

Fire Safety Journal is the leading publication dealing with all aspects of fire safety engineering. Its scope is purposefully wide, as it is deemed important to encourage papers from all sources within this multidisciplinary subject, thus providing a forum for its further development as a distinct engineering discipline. This is an essential step towards gaining a status equal to that enjoyed by the other engineering disciplines.
It is impossible to give a comprehensive list of topics which are considered acceptable and the following list is intended for guidance only:
• Fire chemistry and physics
• Fire dynamics (including gas explosions)
• Active fire protection systems, including detection and suppression
• Passive fire protection methods
• People/fire interactions (physical, physiological and psychological)
• Fire safety management
• Assessment and quantification of fire risk (including acceptability of risk)
• Fire investigation
• Fire safety design (including consumer items, industrial plant, transportation, buildings)
• Fire safety legislation
• Fire safety education.
Original contributions relating to any of the above topics are invited, particularly if they incorporate a quantitative approach to the subject in question.
