How is SJR calculated?

SJR scores are computed using network analysis of citations received by journals. The methodology considers both the number of citations as well as the source of citations, with citations from journals with high prestige having more value than those from journals with lower prestige. The prestige worth depends on the field, quality, and reputation of the journals that the citations were sourced from. Scimago uses the Scopus database and journal classification scheme to rank journals by quartiles across subject areas. Citation data is created from more than 34,000+ titles from over 5,000 international publishers and country-specific performance metrics from around 240 countries worldwide. Computation of SJR is an iterative process that distributes prestige values among the journals until a steady-state solution is reached, similar to the methodology used for Google PageRank. The average SJR value for all journals in Scopus is 1.0. So in order to know the SJR rating Indian Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology Research must be indexed in the Scopus database.


Strengths and Limitations of SJR

The strengths of SJR includes -

  • Assigns Higher Value/Weight To Citations Form More Prestigious Journals
  • Compensates For Differences In Field, Type And Age
  • Meaningful Benchmark Is Built In – 1 Is Average For A Subject

SJR drawbacks include -

  • Absence Of Construct Definition
  • Lack Of Data Coherence
  • Gaps In Journals Coverage And Comparative Purposes
  • Issues Related To Comparability Of Citation Networks
  • Lack Of Ordinal Position Of Ranking Journals
  • Use Of Retrospective Data Backups And Stability
  • Methodological Issues In Quartile Construction
  • Comparatively Low Discriminative Indicator Capacity
  • Issues Related To Parameter Fixing Procedures

It can be concluded that, even though the idea behind SJR is commendable and the indicator is an improved and sophisticated alternative to other indicators of quality. It still omits a large amount of data, forcing into question its transparency, reliability, and suitability for analytical purposes in its current stage, although most of the problems that have been identified can be solved and in the future it might be improved.

Even if SJR has flaws it still is one of the best tools out there to measure the prestige of Indian Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology Research as researchers and organisations still depend on it.
