Materials Today Journal Impact Factor reaches 24.537

Elsevier's materials science journals once again feature at the top of the latest Journal Impact Factor* rankings, as recently released in the 2018 Journal Citation Reports (Clarivate Analytics, 2018). The flagship journal, Materials Today, has reached an impact factor of 24.537, and is the 5th ranked journal in the ‘Materials Science, Multidisciplinary’ category.

Dr Stewart Bland, Executive Publisher for Materials Today said “These results are testament to the support the community has provided to make Materials Today one of the leading journals in the field. With the primary Materials Today journal now open to original research submissions, of both full length articles and short communications, and with the recent launches of the new daughter titles, we’re delighted to be able to provide even greater support to materials science researchers.”

Elsevier's extended Materials Today family also delivered very strong results, with highlights including Nano Energy (13.120), Nano Today (17.753), Biomaterials (8.806), Progress in Polymer Science (24.558), Carbon (7.082) and Composite Science and Technology (5.160). The journal impact factor announcements follow the recent release of the journal CiteScores, which saw Applied Materials Today reach a high of 9.90.

“It is gratifying to see these latest results which reflect the standings of the journals,” said Dr Christiane Barranguet, Publishing Director for Materials Science at Elsevier. “On behalf of Elsevier’s materials team, I would like to share our joy at these achievements and personally thank our editors, authors and referees for their continual input and positive feedback which has empowered the Materials Today family to become the preferred outlet for the best materials research.”
