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.

Human Pathology is designed to bring authoritative information of clinicopathologic significance to human disease to the laboratory and clinical physician. It presents information drawn from morphologic and clinical laboratory studies with direct relevance to the understanding of human diseases. Papers published concern morphologic and clinicopathologic observations, reviews of diseases, analyses of problems in pathology, significant collections of case material and advances in concepts or techniques of value in the analysis and diagnosis of disease. Theoretical and experimental pathology and molecular biology pertinent to human disease are included. This critical and authoritative journal is well illustrated with exceptional reproductions of photomicrographs and microscopic anatomy.
