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 Non-Linear Mechanics provides a specific medium for dissemination of research results in the various areas of theoretical and applied mechanics of solids, structures and fluids, where the phenomena are inherently non-linear. The journal brings together original results in non-linear problems in elasticity, plasticity, dynamics and vibrations, rheology, hydrodynamics, gas dynamics, magnetohydrodynamics, astrodynamics, control and stability, structures, as well as in other diverse areas. Papers may be analytical/computational or experimental. Mathematical treatments of non-linear differential equations wherein solutions and properties of solutions are emphasized are also appropriate. Both deterministic and stochastic approaches are fostered. Contributions pertaining to applied fields are encouraged.
