Applied Materials Today achieves CiteScore of 9.9

Elsevier has released the 2017 CiteScore values, the latest assessment of thousands of serial scholarly publications, freely available to view and review via Scopus.

More than 23,350 source titles covering 330 disciplines are ranked across eight indicators which are part of CiteScore Metrics. The primary CiteScore metric is calculated by dividing the number of citations received in a given year from publications in the three preceding years, by the number of publications in the three preceding years. With free access to CiteScore Metrics’ underlying data, values can be recalculated by anyone, offering transparency to researchers, publishers and the wider academic community. In addition, and acknowledging the potential of every document type to cite and be cited, all document types in Scopus are counted in the calculation of the CiteScore Metrics.

One of the largest increases is for the journal Applied Materials Today, achieving a CiteScore value of 9.90.
