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.

The Journal of Computer and System Sciences publishes original research papers in computer science and related subjects in system science, with attention to the relevant mathematical theory. Applications-oriented papers may also be accepted and they are expected to contain deep analytic evaluation of the proposed solutions.
Research areas include traditional subjects such as:
• Theory of algorithms and computability • Formal languages • Automata theory
Contemporary subjects such as:
• Complexity theory • Algorithmic Complexity • Parallel & distributed computing • Computer networks • Neural networks • Computational learning theory • Database theory & practice • Computer modeling of complex systems • Security and Privacy
