The SJR SCImago Journal and Country Rank – Journal Rankingbased on Scopus data, now have 2012 as their latest year.

The SJR indicator, developed by SCImago, is not as well know as the JCR (Journal Citation Reports), including JIF (Journal Impact Factor), from  ISI Web of KnowledgeHowever the metrics are based on Scopus rather than ISI Web of Knowledge (Web of Science) so more business and management journals are covered, and more business and management subject categories.

The screenshot below shows results for the subject category Accounting from the subject area Business, Management and Accounting. There is also a category Marketing in this subject area (see Journal ranking – marketing posted August 2012). The subject category Finance is in the separate subject area Economics, Econometrics and Finance.

Another major advantage is that the  SJR SCImago Journal and Country Rank – Journal Ranking portal is available online – there is no requirement for a Scopus subscription.

Note the number format in the portal – the standard UK format would have the SJR value for the Journal of Finance written as 14.465 (fourteen point …) and the total references as 2,957 (two thousand, nine hundred …)

The CWTS Journal Indicators are also based on Scopus data, and 2012 is now the latest available. CWTS provide the SNIP indicator (source normalized impact per paper) that corrects for differences in citation practices between different scientific fields.
