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.

Journal of Vascular Surgery ® is dedicated to the science and art of vascular surgery and aims to be the premier international journal of medical, endovascular and surgical care of vascular diseases. Since the first issue was released in 1984, the goal of the journal has been to improve the management of patients with vascular diseases by publishing relevant papers that report important medical, surgical and endovascular advances, test new hypotheses, and address current controversies. To achieve this goal, the Journal will publish original clinical and laborartory research studies, case series, reviews, guidelines and papers that comment on the social, economic, educational, ethical, legal, and political factors that relate to these aims.
As the official publication of The Society for Vascular Surgery ®, the Journal will publish, after careful peer review, selected papers presented at the annual meetings of those organizations and affiliated vascular societies, as well as original articles and invited reviews from members and nonmembers.
