The SCImago Journal & Country Rank
"The SCImago Journal & Country Rank is a portal that includes the journals and country scientific indicators developed from the information contained in the Scopus database (Elsevier B.V.). These indicators could be used to assess and analyze scientific domains. This platform takes its name from the SCImago Journal Rank (SJR) indicator, developed by SCImago from the widely known algorithm Google PageRank. This indicator shows the visibility of the journals contained in the Scopus database from 1996. SCImago is a research group from the University of Granada, Extremadura, Carlos III (Madrid) and Alcala de Henares, dedicated to information analysis, representation and retrieval by means of visualisation techniques."
