Particuology - ISSN 1674-2001
Source Normalized Impact per Paper (SNIP): 1.254 Source Normalized Impact per Paper (SNIP):
SNIP measures contextual citation impact by weighting citations based on the total number of citations in a subject field.
SCImago Journal Rank (SJR): 0.596 SCImago Journal Rank (SJR):
SJR is a prestige metric based on the idea that not all citations are the same. SJR uses a similar algorithm as the Google page rank; it provides a quantitative and a qualitative measure of the journal’s impact.
Impact Factor: 2.787 (2019) Impact Factor:
The Impact Factor measures the average number of citations received in a particular year by papers published in the journal during the two preceding years.

5 Year Impact Factor: 3.111 (2019) Five-Year Impact Factor:
To calculate the five year Impact Factor, citations are counted in 2016 to the previous five years and divided by the source items published in the previous five years.

The word ‘particuology’ was coined to parallel the discipline for the science and technology of particles.

Particuology is an interdisciplinary journal that publishes frontier research articles and critical reviews on the discovery, formulation and engineering of particulate materials, processes and systems. It especially welcomes contributions utilising advanced theoretical, modelling and measurement methods to enable the discovery and creation of new particulate materials, and the manufacturing of functional particulate-based products, such as sensors.

Papers are handled by Thematic Editors who oversee contributions from specific subject fields. These fields are classified into: Particle Synthesis and Modification; Particle Characterization and Measurement; Granular Systems and Bulk Solids Technology; Fluidization and Particle-Fluid Systems; Aerosols; and Applications of Particle Technology.

Key topics concerning the creation and processing of particulates include:

  • Modelling and simulation of particle formation, collective behaviour of particles and systems for particle production over a broad spectrum of length scales
  • Mining of experimental data for particle synthesis and surface properties to facilitate the creation of new materials and processes
  • Particle design and preparation including controlled response and sensing functionalities in formation, delivery systems and biological systems, etc.
  • Experimental and computational methods for visualization and analysis of particulate system

These topics are broadly relevant to the production of materials, pharmaceuticals and food, and to the conversion of energy resources to fuels and protection of the environment.

With a focus on new learning related to complex multi-scale systems and phenomena, Particuology especially welcomes and now provides a platform for themes related to meso-science. This emerging field recognises that common phenomena can be observed across length scales ranging from elemental particles through to that of the observable universe. Since particulate systems are ubiquitous in various fields, this initiative extends the scope of the journal, while maintaining a focus on the common scientific challenges for these fields.
