Journal metrics

The academic community has demanded more choice, accuracy and insight into journal performance, and Elsevier has responded with new metrics.

CiteScore is one of these new metrics. It is defined by the number of citations received by a journal in one year to documents published in the three previous years, divided by the number of documents indexed in Scopus published in those same three years. For example, the 2015 CiteScore counts the citations received in 2015 to documents published in 2012, 2013 or 2014, and divides this by the number of documents indexed in Scopus published in 2012, 2013 and 2014.
