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 International Dairy Journal publishes significant advancements in dairy science and technology, communicating quality, hypothesis-based research and critical reviews that are of relevance to the broader international dairy community. Within this scope, research on the science and technology of milk and dairy products and the nutritional and health aspects of dairy foods are included; the journal pays particular attention to applied research and its interface with the dairy industry.
The journal's coverage includes the following, where directly applicable to dairy science and technology: • Chemistry and physico-chemical properties of milk constituents • Microbiology, food safety, enzymology, biotechnology • Processing and engineering • Emulsion science, food structure, and texture • Raw material quality and effect on relevant products • Flavour and off-flavour development • Technological functionality and applications of dairy ingredients • Sensory and consumer sciences • Analytical techniques • Nutrition and substantiation of human health implications of milk components or dairy products
International Dairy Journal does not publish papers related to milk production, animal health and other aspects of on-farm milk production unless there is a clear relationship to dairy technology, human health or final product quality.
