Source Normalized Impact per Paper (SNIP): 2.693 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): 1.355 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: 4.375 (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.

Sustainable Materials and Technologies

Sustainable Materials and Technologies (SM&T) is an international, cross-disciplinary journal, published by Elsevier. SM&T publishes original full-length research articles and reviews in applied or fundamental science of nano-, micro-, meso-, and macro-scale aspects of materials and technologies for sustainable development with special attention to contributions that reduce the knowledge gap between materials and system designs.

Aims and Scope

SM&T acknowledges the interdisciplinary nature of scientific research on sustainable development and covers a broad and wide scope. It provides a scientific platform for physicists, mathematicians, chemists material scientists, engineers and other technical experts to contribute innovative works and combine the different disciplines in Sustainability Science and Technology related to:

• Resource-efficiency optimization (e.g., minimize amount of precious metals in product design)

• Innovative approaches with breakthrough performance for CO2 capture and utilization

• Material recycling and materials recovery from complex products

• Material substitution to enable lower-impact production and/or use (e.g., composites)

• Lifecycle analyses of sustainable technologies

• Energy sources for the long term

• Advanced manufacturing processes with reduced energy, water, and materials footprint

• Theory and Simulation for Energy and Environmental Systems

• Emerging materials for efficient sustainable energy and environment devices

• New concept and technology for sustainable energy and environmental devices and systems

• Sustainable fuel generations through efficient photo-/thermo-/electro-/chemo-catalysis

• Theory and Simulation of Advanced Materials for Sustainable Applications

• Sustainable biomaterials and technologies for biomedical applications

• Life-cycle and techno-economics analysis of sustainable technologies

Note to authors:
Papers submitted to Sustainable Materials and Technologies need to include a quantitative discussion why the new material, use, or process is a significant improvement in performance and/or in economics. Papers that are principally cataloguing the properties of a material will be insufficient to be accepted for the journal.
Submissions focusing only on policy/decision making or economic aspects are unsuitable to publish in SM&T.
