9 Field-Weighted Citation Impact in SciVal indicates how the number of citations received by an entity’s publications compares with the average number of citations received by all other similar publications in the data universe, i.e. how do the citations received by this entity’s publications compare with the world average; A FWCI of 1.00 indicates that the entity’s publications have been cited exactly as would be expected based on the global average for similar publications. FWCI is size-normalized, field-normalized, publication-type normalized, resistant to database coverage and difficult to manipulate. FWCI also accounts for the relative number of citations relating to the age of the entity.

10 SCImago Journal Rank is a prestige metric, whose methodology is similar to that of Google PageRank. It weights the value of a citation depending on the field, quality and reputation of the journal that the citation comes from, so that “all citations are not equal”. SJR also takes differences in the behaviour of academics in different disciplines into account, and can be used to compare journals in different fields. The average SJR value for all journals in Scopus is 1.000
