Counseling Journals: Elsevier's Metrics

Counseling Journals and their evaluations for Amy Gaesser

Metric definitins

There are three metrics that are available in Elsevier's SCOPUS database. View each series by clicking on the tab.

  1. CiteScore metrics:A family of eight indicators that offer complementary views to analyze the publication influence of serial titles of interest. Derived from the Scopus database — almost twice the size of the next-leading abstract and citation data provider —CiteScore metrics offer a more robust and accurate indication of a serial’s impact.
  2. SCImago Journal Rank (SJR):SCImago Journal Rank is a prestige metric based on the idea that not all citations are the same. With SJR, the subject field, quality and reputation of the journal have a direct effect on the value of a citation.
  3. 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.
