On the 30th of July 2014, Thomson Reuters released the Journal Citation Reports 2013 with new Impact factors, which have sparked a heated debate, as every year they do. Tough recognizing the importance of Thomson Reuters' bibliometrics, PAGEPress welcomes new suggestions about indicators of journals’ performance. In fact, we reckon citations’ criterion (because of some inner weaknesses) cannot be ever adequate to measure the importance of contribution made by scientific articles and researches. So we appreciate the recent initiative of Scopus which decided, “to follow a multidisciplinary approach and endorse at least two journal metrics that highlighted distinct aspects of performance” adopting three different metrics: SNIP, IPP and SJR. In the near future, we will adopt altmetrics to measure the impact of any single article published by our journals. Aug. 1st, 2014.
