SJR = SCImago Journal Rank. "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." (González-Pereira, Guerrero-Bote, & Moya-Anegón, 2010, p. 380) [emphasis added]

"The SJR indicator is an open-access resource, while the journal IF [Impact Factor] requires paid subscription. The SJR indicator (based on Scopus data) lists considerably more journal titles published in a wider variety of countries and languages, than the journal IF (based on Web of Science data). Both indices divide citations to a journal by articles of the journal, during a specific time period. However, contrary to the journal IF, the SJR indicator attributes different weight to citations depending on the “prestige” of the citing journal without the influence of journal self-citations; prestige is estimated with the application of the [Google] PageRank algorithm in the network of journals." (Falagas, Kouranos, Arencibia-Jorge, & Karageorgopoulos, 2008, p. 2623) [emphasis added]

Psychological Injury and Law h5-index = 14

Psychological Injury and Law h5-median = 22

The h5-index is the h-index for articles published in the last 5 complete years. It is the largest number h such that h articles published in 2012-2016 have at least h citations each.

The h5-median for a publication is the median number of citations for the articles that make up its h5-index.

Thus, an h5-index of 14 means that our journal published 14 articles in the previous 5 years that each have 14 or more citations.

An h5-median of 22 means that those 14 articles were each cited on average (median) 22 times.
