The set of journals have been ranked according to their SJR and divided into four equal groups, four quartiles. Q1 green comprises the quarter of the journals with the highest values, Q2 yellow the second highest values, Q3 orange the third highest values and Q4 red the lowest values. The SJR is a size-independent prestige indicator that ranks journals by their 'average prestige per article'. It is based on the idea that 'all citations are not created equal'. SJR is a measure of scientific influence of journals that accounts for both the number of citations received by a journal and the importance or prestige of the journals where such citations come from It measures the scientific influence of the average article in a journal, it expresses how central to the global scientific discussion an average article of the journal is. This indicator counts the number of citations received by documents from a journal and divides them by the total number of documents published in that journal.
This series is a forum for presenting the state-of-the-art and newest achievements in the Earth and space sciences. Its main objective is a multidisciplinary approach to link scientific activities in various Earth-related fields geophysics, geology, oceanology with the Solar System research. Our publications encompass topical monographs and selected conference proceedings, authored or edited by leading experts of international repute as well as by promising young scientists. We believe that the broad scope of problems dealt with by the GeoPlanet series may give a stimulus for new ideas and discoveries. Michael A.
