Values

In this section you can search the entire collection of journals covered by Scopus (currently the world’s largest database of academic literature, with 20,500 journals) along with their SNIP and SJR metrics going back to 1999. View SNIP and SJR values for the journal(s) of your choice by using the search tool below.

Journal Metrics archive

Due to the fact that SNIP and SJR are calculated from Scopus, SNIP and SJR values cannot be fixed in time. Scopus is dynamic: it shows citations per document in real time and is continuously updating historical content, in addition to new content as it comes out. As a consequence, when the values are published, they will take all the historical updates into account as well. This means that with each data refresh, all values (current and previous years) are recalculated and refreshed. This is good if you want up-to-the-minute values, but can make it difficult to validate quoted values.

While we believe that reporting the current state of the database to be more transparent, we also realize that reports have been created based on previous metric sets. For this purpose historical datasets are maintained in this archive thus allowing for validation of past values.
