SCImago (with headquarter in Spain) is a research organization whose mission is to provide information on the quality of scientific research by countries, research institutions, and the prestige of journals through the analysis of indexes based on the SCOPUS database built by Elsevier Publishing House (Netherlands) since 2004. SCImago ranks the quality of journals by the SJR index (SCImago Journal Ranking), which takes into account the number of citations each journal receives and the reputation of the journals that cite it. This index was developed by SCImago from Google’s website ranking algorithm (Google PageRank) that excludes self-quoted content, or considers other factors such as author diversity and content. Scimago Journal Rank has 4 percentiles. The journals in the Q1 percentile have the best quality, followed by the journals in Q2, Q3, and finally Q4.
