We are very pleased to announce that Acta Biomaterialia has been selected for indexing in the Science Citation Index by Thomson-Reuters. In existence since 1964, the Science Citation Index contains only a selection, from within the Science Citation Index Expanded, of the most highly cited, highest impact journals in each category. Journals selected in the SCI are considered the top journals in their subject category.

Acta Biomaterialia is one of one of the three journals of Acta Materialia Inc., alongside Acta Materialia and Scripta Materialia. With more than 60 years of history, these journals are of the highest-quality in materials science, and they have published some of the most influential articles that have helped shape the field of materials science.

Acta Biomaterialia turns 10 in 2015, and this decision by Thomson-Reuters clearly comes in recognition of the very high standards established by the editorial team, under the leadership of the Editor-in-Chief,  Prof. William R. Wagner, Director of the McGowan Institute for Regenerative Medicine at the University of Pittsburgh, and comprising Dr Marc Bohner from the RMS Foundation in Bettlach, Switzerland and Prof. William L. Murphy from the University of Wisconsin at Madison in the USA.

Prof. Wagner indicated that “This is very good news. This is an important designation in determining where to submit articles, in particular for authors from Asia”.

Some of the most influential articles published in Acta Biomaterialia over the past 10 years can be found here.
