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.

This journal is a platform for publishing innovative research and overviews for advancing our understanding of the structure, property, and functionality of complex metallic alloys, including intermetallics, metallic glasses, and high entropy alloys.
The journal reports the science and engineering of metallic materials in the following aspects:
- Theories and experiments which address the relationship between property and structure in all length scales.
- Physical modeling and numerical simulations which provide a comprehensive understanding of experimental observations.
- Stimulated methodologies to characterize the structure and chemistry of materials that correlate the properties.
- Technological applications resulting from the understanding of property-structure relationship in materials.
- Novel and cutting-edge results warranting rapid communication.
- The journal also publishes special issues on selected topics and overviews by invitation only.
