Journal Metrics live on Scopus

on Thu, 07/02/2015 - 14:00

Last week, we announced that the 2014 journal metrics values were launched and freely available on This week, we’re happy to report that the 2014 Journal Metrics values for the Source Normalized Impact per Paper (SNIP), SCImago Journal Rank (SJR) and Impact per Publication (IPP) are now live on The values have been updated into Scopus for the Compare journals and Browse Sources pages, as well as on the Public Title List that is available on the Scopus info site. The new data provides 2014 citation performance metrics for 22,639 serials in all subjects in science, social sciences and the arts and humanities.

All journals included in Scopus receive journal metric values and the extensive, global coverage of Scopus allows many journals that do not have an Impact Factor to view and understand their role in the scholarly publication landscape. All Scopus-based journal metric values are available for free at or via the Public Title List.  If researchers must consider citation metrics, they should be able to see them. The free file on the Journalmetrics site contains over 34,000 current and historic serials titles, and an additional 18,238 one-time or multi-year proceedings.
