Wiley-Blackwell announces new impact factors in nanotechnology and materials science
(Nanowerk News) Wiley-Blackwell announced that the ISI Journal Citation Report 2007 confirms its position as one of the leading publishers in the areas of Materials Science and Nanotechnology.
Again more than 60% of the Wiley-Blackwell journals in these categories show an increase compared to last years' figures and attain excellent rankings, with 3 journals ranked among the top 10 by Impact Factor in the main category Materials Science, Multidisciplinary. Not only are Wiley-Blackwell's established journals increasing in impact and market influence, but also new journals are recognized as leading sources of scientific content.
Advanced Materials, publishing a mixture of reviews and rapid communications, increases its Impact Factor to 8.191, making it one of the most influential journals in the field. It not only continues to be one of the top 3 journals publishing original research in multidisciplinary materials science and multidisciplinary chemistry — with 39.822 citations it also is the 2nd most cited journal in Materials Science.
Its sister journal Advanced Functional Materials has shown increasing Impact Factors ever since its launch, and with its new Impact Factor of 7.496 maintains its status as the top full paper journal in the field. It is listed among the top 10 journals in three categories, including rank #3 in Applied Physics.
Small, the interdisciplinary journal on nanoscience and nanotechnology, shows further growth on its brilliant first Impact Factor assigned last year. With 6.408 the journal now ranks #3 in its main field and moves up to rank #8 both in Materials Science and Chemistry, Multidisciplinary.
Macromolecular Bioscience celebrates another significantly increased Impact Factor of now 2.831. Together with the Journal of Biomedical Materials Research, Part A, which moves up to 2.612, it maintains its ranking among the top 5 journals in Biomaterials. JBMR, Part B also increases its Impact Factor to 1.933 and now ranks #7.
The Journal of the American Ceramic Society shows a significant increase of 28% with a new Impact Factor of 1.792. This moves the journal back to the #1 position in Ceramics with its sister journal, the International Journal of Applied Ceramic Technology, closely behind at #3 with an Impact Factor of 1.366.
For over 10 years now, Chemical Vapor Deposition has maintained its #2 position in Materials Science, Coating & Films. With its new Impact Factor of 1.936 the journal shows another increase by 15%, reflecting its influence and quality.
Journal of Vinyl & Additive Technology, a journal of the Society of Plastics Engineers, remains one of the top 5 journals in the Textiles category.
