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 scope of Physica B comprises all condensed matter physics, including both experimental and theoretical work. Papers should contain a new experimental, calculated, or theoretical result of which the physics is properly discussed.
The requirement of the presence of some new condensed matter physics means that typical materials science papers which, for instance, mainly concern a new more efficient or cheaper preparation method of a material or the optimization of an already known physical property of a material with the aim of application, fall outside the scope of Physica B.
Note: Plagiarism, or copying text or results from other sources, is unethical behavior and is not tolerated at Physica B. All manuscripts submitted to Physica B will be checked for originality using the CrossCheck database. For more information on CrossCheck please visit http://www.crossref.org/crosscheck.html
