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.

Sedimentary Geology is a journal that rapidly publishes high quality, cutting edge research papers of general interest across the entire range of subjects falling under the umbrella of sedimentary geology, from techniques of sediment analysis to geodynamical aspects of sedimentary-basin evolution. Papers that discuss the latest developments in topics such as processes, techniques and models that can be applied to sediment analysis, particularly in emerging subject areas, are also actively invited.
In scope, the journal encompasses all aspects of research into sediments and sedimentary rocks at all spatial and temporal scales. We encourage the submission of papers dealing with linkages between sedimentology and other earth systems, for example climate and biogeochemistry. We also welcome papers that deal with sedimentology, sediments and sedimentary rocks from past, present and future contexts.
Papers submitted to Sedimentary Geology should place the research in a broad context so that it is of interest to the diverse, international readership of the journal. Thus, papers that are largely descriptive in nature and/or of limited or local significance will not be considered for publication.
