(a) A three year moving average of the ratio of the total number of papers cited in a given journal divided by the total number of papers published during this three years, e.g., the 2018 measurement is given by the total number of citations of all papers published in the 2015-2017 period divided by the total number of papers published during the same period (2015-2017).
(b) An overall effect which in a given by the total citations divided by the total number of papers published in all volumes by a given Journal.
(c) A readership effect which is measured as the total number of readings of the published papers divided by the total number of papers published (this measure will be available in 2020).
(d) An equally weighted average of the (b) and (c) measures (this measure will be available in 2020).

The number of citations of each article was calculated using the Google Scholar results.
