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.

Remote Sensing of Environment serves the remote sensing community with the publication of results on theory, science, applications and technology of remote sensing of Earth resources and environment. Thoroughly interdisciplinary, this journal publishes on terrestrial, oceanic, and atmospheric sensing. The emphasis of the journal is on biophysical and quantitative approaches to remote sensing at local to global scales. Areas of interest include, but are not necessarily restricted to: – Agriculture, forestry and range – Biophysical-spectral models – Ecology – Earth and environmental science – Geography and land information – Geology and geoscience – Hydrology and water resources – Image processing and analysis – Atmospheric science and meteorology – Oceanography – Sensor systems and spectral-radiometric measurements
In addition to original research papers, comprehensive review articles are welcome. Brief papers containing significant new data or techniques may be published as Short Communications.
