In this paper, the authors explore the metrics comparison between Impact Factor (IF) and SCImago Journal Rank (SJR) for journals indexed in both Web of Science (WoS) and scopus databases. The study analyses five engineering education journals and seven educational technology journals, which are indexed in both WoS and scopus. The analysis dates are limited to 2010 through 2011. The results show that the variation between IF and SJR rank for educational technology and engineering education journals is small. Within two years (from 2010 to 2011), a strong, positive relationship continually exists between IF and SJR rank for selected journals.
