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 journal is intended to present within a single forum all of the developments in the field of multi-sensor, multi-source, multi-process information fusion and thereby promote the synergism among the many disciplines that are contributing to its growth. The journal is the premier vehicle for disseminating information on all aspects of research and development in the field of information fusion. Articles are expected to emphasize one or more of the three facets: architectures, algorithms, and applications. Papers dealing with fundamental theoretical analyses as well as those demonstrating their application to real-world problems will be welcome. The journal publishes original papers, letters to the Editors and from time to time invited review articles, in all areas related to the information fusion arena including, but not limited to, the following suggested topics:
• Data/Image, Feature, Decision, and Multilevel Fusion • Multi-classifier/Decision Systems • Multi-Look Temporal Fusion • Multi-Sensor, Multi-Source Fusion System Architectures • Distributed and Wireless Sensor Networks • Higher Level Fusion Topics Including Situation Awareness And Management • Multi-Sensor Management and Real-Time Applications • Adaptive And Self-Improving Fusion System Architectures • Active, Passive, And Mixed Sensor Suites • Multi-Sensor And Distributed Sensor System Design • Fusion Learning In Imperfect, Imprecise And Incomplete Environments • Intelligent Techniques For Fusion Processing • Fusion System Design And Algorithmic Issues • Fusion System Computational Resources and Demands Optimization • Special Purpose Hardware Dedicated To Fusion Applications • Mining Remotely Sensed Multi-Spectral/Hyper-Spectral Image Data Bases • Information Fusion Applications in Intrusion Detection, Network Security, Information Security and Assurance arena • Applications such as Robotics, Space, Bio-medical, Transportation, Economics, and Financial Information Systems • Real-World Issues such as Computational Demands, Real-Time Constraints in the context of Fusion systems.
