## Scope/Description:

Statistical Methods and Applications (SMA), the official Journal of the Italian Statistical Society, is an international journal aiming at promoting the development of statistical methodology and its applications in the biological, demographic, economic, health, physical, social and other scientific domains. SMA includes two sections: The first is devoted to statistical methodology and publishes original contributions in all fields of Statistics and, occasionally, critical reviews and discussions on recent developments in statistical theory and methods. The second section of the journal publishes papers devoted to original and/or innovative applications of recent statistical methodology and complex approaches of statistical data analysis. The journal is published four times a year. SMA provides a forum for the presentation of Italian and international research on methods that are of central interest to modern statistics. Discussions on methodological foundations and methods that have broad applications will be welcome and preferred.

## Impact Factor

The impact factor (IF) or journal impact factor (JIF) of an academic journal is a scientometric factor based on the yearly average number of citations on articles published by a particular journal in the last two years. In other words, the impact factor of 2020 is the average of the number of cited publications divided by the citable publications of a journal. A journal impact factor is frequently used as a proxy for the relative importance of a journal within its field. Normally, journals with higher impact factors are often deemed to have more influence than those with lower ones. However, the science community has also noted that review articles typically are more citable than research articles.

## Other Journal Impact Indicator

Any journal impact factor or scientometric indicator alone will not give you the full picture of a science journal. Thatâ€™s why every year, scholars review current metrics to improve upon them and sometimes come up with new ones. There are also other factors to sider for example, H-Index, Self-Citation Ratio, SJR (SCImago Journal Rank Indicator) and SNIP (Source Normalized Impact per Paper). Researchers may also consider the practical aspect of a journal such as publication fees, acceptance rate, review speed.

## Statistical Methods and Applications

##### H-Index

The h-index is an author-level metric that attempts to measure both the productivity and citation impact of the publications of a scientist or scholar. The index is based on the set of the scientist's most cited papers and the number of citations that they have received in other publications

##### SCImago Journal Rank (SJR)

SCImago Journal Rank (SJR indicator) is a measure of scientific influence of scholarly 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.
