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.

Ocean Engineering provides a medium for the publication of original research and development work in the field of ocean engineering. Ocean Engineering seeks papers in the following topics.
Ocean Engineering, including:
fixed and floating offshore oil and gas platforms;
pipelines and risers;
cables and mooring;
marine and offshore renewable energy;
aquaculture engineering; and subsea engineering.
Naval Architecture including:
ship and special marine vehicle design;
intact and damaged stability;
technology for energy efficiency and green shipping;
ship production technology;
decommissioning and recycling.
Polar and Arctic Engineering including:
Underwater Technology including:
maneuvering and control; and underwater-specific communicating and sensing systems for AUV/ROVs.
In these fields, papers on the following technical topics are welcome.
Hydrodynamics: CFD; vortex induced vibrations; fluid-structure interaction; hydroelasticity; linear and non-linear wave mechanics; buoyancy and stability; ship resistance and propulsion; seakeeping and controls; ship maneuvering, radiated noise.
Structural mechanics: materials; limit state prediction; fatigue; fracture; structural health monitoring; collision and crash worthiness, degradation.
Stochastic calculations: stochastic processes; safety and reliability; risk and limit state design.
Experimental approaches: instrumentation; full-scale measurements; model tests.
Marine equipment: risers; pipelines; ballast water treatment; air emissions treatment; underwater noise mitigation; and associated components or equipment.
Ocean environmental predictions- only for ocean structures and vessel operation and design: extreme event predictions; extreme statistics; wave groups; short-term environment predictions; impact of climate change. Note that broader environmental and climate model, sensing, and data sets should be submitted to climate and oceanographic journals.
In recognition of the fact that many research and development workers are now entering the area, occasional review articles by leading authorities are also published.
