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.

Radiation Measurements provides a forum for the presentation of the latest developments in the broad field of ionizing radiation detection and measurement and publishes original papers on both fundamental and applied research.
Traditionally the journal has covered methods that comprise solid state nuclear track detectors; spontaneous and stimulated luminescence (including scintillating materials, thermoluminescence, and optically stimulated luminescence); electron spin resonance of natural and synthetic materials; nuclear magnetic resonance (including ferrous sulfate and polymer gels), and superheated emulsions (including superheated drop and bubble detectors). Physics, design and performance of radiation measurements, including computational modelling such as Monte Carlo simulations, are of relevance to the journal, as well as studies of energy-transfer phenomena, track physics and microdosimetry. Measurements and calculations of fundamental physical data, such as cross sections, reaction yields and attenuation coefficients, are acceptable within studies of radiation detection and dosimetry.
Applications of interest to the journal are: personal dosimetry (including dosimetric quantities, active/electronic and passive monitoring techniques for photon, neutron and charged-particle exposures); environmental dosimetry (including radon measurements where they introduce methodological advances, predictive models, or detailed and original maps of complete or unusual geographical/geological regions); cosmic and high-energy radiation measurements (including dosimetry, space radiation effects, and single event upsets); dosimetry-based archaeological and geological dating; accident and retrospective dosimetry (including activation detectors). Papers that present novel detection techniques and applications such as illicit radiological and nuclear material detection (including contraband interdiction and safeguards verification) are also sought.
Review articles are periodically solicited by the Editors.
Please note that rejected papers will not be considered when resubmitted in any form, or to an alternative Editor.
