Release of SNIP 2016


June 30th, 2017

SNIP 2016 values have been released by CWTS on the CWTS Journal Indicators website. The values have also become available in the Elsevier Scopus database.

SNIP, which is an abbreviation of source normalized impact per paper, is an advanced metric of the citation impact of scientific journals. The metric has been developed by CWTS. Unlike the popular journal impact factor, SNIP corrects for differences in citation practices between scientific fields. It therefore allows for much fairer comparisons between journals in different fields. SNIP is based on the Scopus database, a large multidisciplinary bibliographic database produced by Elsevier.
