SCImago Journal Rankings

Using Scopus data, SCImago Journal Rank (SJR) offers metrics that are the average number of weighted citations received in year over the number of documents published in the previous three years. Citations are weighted--worth more or less--depending on the source that they come from (subject field, quality and reputation of the journal, etc.) These metrics can be applied to journals, book series and conference proceedings. The SCImago site allows you to view journal rankings by subject area. Below is a brief tutorial about locating journals in Arts and Humanities by SJR quartile and H index ranking.
