Clear decisions start here
The Scopus Journal Analyzer provides a quick, easy and transparent view of journal performance, now enriched with two journal metrics - SJR and SNIP also available at www.journalmetrics.com.
Using citations from nearly 20,500 titles from 5,000 international publishers, the Scopus Journal Analyzer gives editors, publishing teams, researchers and librarians quick, easy access to a transparent and objective overview of the journal landscape going back to 1996.
The Scopus Journal Analyzer turns a laborious task into a simple comparison – leaving you with more time to analyze the results and make clear, informed decisions.
How does it work?
The Scopus Journal Analyzer allows you to select up to 10 journals in a specific field. The results are uploaded into graphs, making it easy to see how journals are performing relative to each other. The data displayed can also be limited to a shorter time period than the default from 1996 to the present.
Did you know?
The data in the Scopus Journal Analyzer is updated every two months. For the first time ever, you can see where your journals stand right now, not where they were last year.
How can you benefit?
Journal evaluation is becoming increasingly relevant within academic, government and corporate markets. All these user groups can benefit from the Scopus Journal Analyzer’s unique time-saving and comparative features.
The Scopus Journal Analyzer gives quick, easy access to an objective and transparent overview of the performance of your own and your competitors’ journals over time. This can help you analyze and manage journal portfolios more effectively, identify new growth areas, set out a strategy to increase performance or decide which journals you would like to be an editorial board member for.
The Scopus Journal Analyzer enables you to search for journals within a specific field, identify which are the most influential and find out who publishes them. This will help you to decide where to publish to get the best visibility for your work and how to prioritize your submissions. It can also help you decide which journal you would like to review for publications.
Librarians and information specialists
The Scopus Journal Analyzer enables you to search for all journals in a specific subject area and view their current details and performance over time.

The Scopus Journal Analyzer’s unique functionality provides you with five graphical representations of the journals:
SCImago Journal Rank (SJR) , is a measure of the scientific prestige of scholarly sources: value of weighted citations per document. A source transfers its own 'prestige', or status, to another source through the act of citing it. A citation from a source with a relatively high SJR is worth more than a citation from a source with a lower SJR. For more information on SJR click here...
Source Normalized Impact per Paper (SNIP) measures contextual citation impact by weighting citations based on the total number of citations in a subject field. The impact of a single citation is given higher value in subject areas where citations are less likely, and vice versa. For more information on SNIP click here...
Citations displays the total number of citations the selected journals receive over the course of each year.
Documents shows the number of articles published by each journal over time.
% Not Cited provides the percentage of all documents that did not receive citations in that year.
Percent Review provides a new metric to the Journal Analyzer which represents the percentage of articles in a journal that are categorized as a review. In addition to often being titled as a review, review articles offer a concise synopsis of a subject or body of literature.
