Cartographic Journals in Scopus

Nedjeljko Frančula


Scopus is a commercial database owned by Elsevier established in 2004. Scopus is the largest bibliographic and citation database in the world and includes tools for searching, analysing and visualizing data. End of 2007 saw the emergence of the Scimago Journal & Country Rank (SJR
2016) portal, which uses Scopus data to rank journals per various statistical indicators of published papers and their citation. The most important indicator is SJR (Scimago Journal Rank). It is calculated similarly to impact factor, i.e. based on the number ofcitations. While
all citations have the same weight in the impact factor, SJR also takes the journals’ indicator into calculation.
