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 Journal of Developmental Neuroscience publishes original research papers, reviews and communications on both basic and clinical aspects of the developing nervous system, ranging from simpler invertebrate systems and in vitro neural models to models of regeneration and neurological diseases of developmental origin. Papers focused on translational research considering genetic and epigenetic approaches to behavior and nutrition, just two examples, are also encouraged.
The journal encourages the publication of Special Issues dealing with topics at the cutting edge of research edited by Guest Editors appointed by the Editor in Chief.
The main aim of the journal is to facilitate the transfer of basic information to clinical applications and to promote an understanding of the fundamental mechanisms of neural growth, development and pathology.
