TL: The SCImago Journal & Country Rank is a site that includes the journals and country scientific indicators developed from the information contained in the Scopus® database (Elsevier B.V.). One can calculate two metrics: SCImago Journal Rank (SJR) and Source Normalized Impact per Paper (SNIP), which compare directly to Web of Science's Impact Factor. SJR is based on times cited but also use an algorithm similar to Google PageRank to calculate article influence which it uses to create rankings.
