Higher SJR (0.97) and SNIP (1.25) rankings for 2015 announced for IJHT.

The SJR ranking for IJHT has risen from 0.311 (2014) to 0.95 (2015). The SJR (SCImago Journal Rank) is a size-independent prestige indicator that ranks journals by their “average prestige per article”.

It is based on the idea that “all citations are not created equal”. SJR is a measure of scientific influence of journals that accounts for both the number of citations received by a journal and the importance or prestige of the journals where such citations come from. It measures the scientific influence of the average article in a journal, and it expresses how central to the global scientific discussion an average article of the journal is.

The SJR is developed from the information contained in the Scopus® database (Elsevier B.V.).

The SNIP ranking for IJHT has risen from 1.23 (2014) to 1.25 (2015). The SNIP indicator (Source Normalized Impact per Paper) measures the average citation impact of the publications of a journal. Unlike the well-known Journal Impact Factor, SNIP corrects for differences in citation practices between scientific fields, thereby allowing for more accurate between-field comparisons of citation impact.
