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 Journal of Human Evolution concentrates on publishing the highest quality papers covering all aspects of human evolution. The central focus is aimed jointly at palaeoanthropological work, covering human and primate fossils, and at comparative studies of living species, including both morphological and molecular evidence. These include descriptions of new discoveries, interpretative analyses of new and previously described material, and assessments of the phylogeny and palaeobiology of primate species. Submissions should address issues and questions of broad interest in palaeoanthropology.
In addition to original research papers, space is allocated for the rapid publication of short communications on new discoveries, such as exciting new fossils, or on matters of topical interest, such as reports on meetings. The journal also publishes longer review papers solicited from workers active in particular fields of research. All manuscripts are subjected to review by three referees.
Research Areas Include: • Palaeoanthropological work, covering human and primate fossils • Comparative studies of living species, including both morphological and molecular evidence • Primate systematics, behaviour, and ecology in the context of the evolution of the group involved • Functional studies, particularly relating to diet and locomotion • Body size and allometric studies • Studies in palaeolithic archaeology • Taphonomic and stratigraphical studies supporting fossil evidence for primate and human evolution • Palaeoecological and palaeogeographical models for primate and human evolution
