Impact Factors 2017
This week sees the announcement of journal impact factors by Clarivate Analytics. You can find the full list of all our journals and their corresponding impact factors on our journals pages.
Our flagship journal, Chemical Science, is up 4.6% to 9.1, whilst Chemical Society Reviews is up 4.0% to 40.2 and is now ranked second in the ‘Chemistry, Multidisciplinary’ category.
Journal of Materials Chemistry A has seen a 12% increase to 9.9 and is now ranked sixth in the ‘Chemical, Physical’ category. Meanwhile Inorganic Chemistry Frontiers – a collaboration between the Royal Society of Chemistry and the Chinese Chemical Society – has risen 26.5% to 5.1 and is now ranked number three in the ‘Chemistry, Inorganic’ category, out of 45 journals.
Nanoscale Horizons, which publishes first reports of exceptional significance across the breadth of nanoscience and nanotechnology research, received its first impact factor of 9.4, while Reaction Chemistry & Engineering received a first impact factor of 4.6. Both journals ranked in the top quartile of the categories in which they are listed.
“We would like to thank our authors for choosing to publish their best work with us. We strive to provide a world-class service to our authors, and to publish high quality research across the chemical sciences, and we believe these results are a testament to this.”
“Although impact factors are a somewhat imperfect measure of impact, their announcement is nonetheless an opportunity to celebrate the high quality research that we publish in our journals, as well as the hard work put in by our authors, reviewers, editorial boards and publishing teams.”
