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.

Physics Letters A offers an exciting publication outlet for novel and frontier physics. It encourages the submission of new research on: condensed matter physics, theoretical physics, nonlinear science, statistical physics, mathematical and computational physics, general and cross-disciplinary physics (including foundations), atomic, molecular and cluster physics, plasma and fluid physics, optical physics, biological physics and nanoscience. Physics Letters A also publishes Invited Perspective Articles focusing on break-through research in physics. The journal's high standard and wide dissemination ensures a broad readership and visibility amongst the physics community.
Note to authors: If you which to be considered for an Invited Perspective Article please contact the Editors. Physics Letters A does not publish articles on High Energy and Nuclear Physics. Plagiarism, or copying text or results from other sources, is unethical behavior and is not tolerated at Physics Letters A.
