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.

Innovative Food Science and Emerging Technologies (IFSET) aims to provide the highest quality original contributions on new developments in food science and emerging technologies. The work described should be innovative either in the approach or in the methods used. The significance of the results either for the science community or for the food industry must also be specified. Papers submitted for publication must be novel and of high scientific quality and impact. Only papers which advance current scientific knowledge, with industrial relevance, which advance current understanding will be considered for review and publication. IFSET does not publish preliminary or confirmatory results. The journal publishes selected research and review articles dealing with engineering, scale-up, safety, sustainability, kinetics and mechanistic aspects of promising food processing technologies. Each article should make a clear contribution to further the understanding of a given science and technology area, and help clarify, when possible, whether or not it could be adopted by the food industry. Articles addressing the novel combination of more than one technology are within the scope of the journal, as are articles dealing with innovation and advances in all branches of food science, including food biotechnology, nutrition and material science. Topics covered include:new and emerging technologies for foods and food constituents; process-structure-function relationships at macro-, micro- and nano scale; tailor made foods;process control, process-packaging interactions;resource efficient processes; sustainable processes; kinetics and mechanisms of inactivation of micro-organisms, enzymes, viruses, allergens and toxins; nutrient retention, accessibility and availability;structural changes, texture and rheology;minimal processing; Example of processes include: high hydrostatic pressure processing; pulsed light or electric fields; microwave and radio-frequency heating;ultrasonics; cold plasma; irradiation; UV light; high pressure homogenization; ohmic heating;dense gases; thermal, non-thermal and sub-zero processing.
