Journal of Electrostatics - ISSN 0304-3886
Source Normalized Impact per Paper (SNIP): 1.073 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): 0.481 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: 1.556 (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.

The field of electrostatics encompasses phenomena resulting from the interaction of stationary or moving electrical charges, where the interaction is due solely to the charges and their positions and not due to their motion.

The Journal of Electrostatics is the leading forum for publishing research findings that advance knowledge in the field of electrostatics. We invite submissions in the following areas:

Electrostatic charge separation processes: Fundamental science behind how materials (solid or liquid) accumulate electrostatic charge, by triboelectric, induction, conduction, corona and electrical double layer charging, or other mechanisms. Electrostatic charge dissipation and neutralization. Space charge in solid dielectrics. Electrets. Methods to control charging. Static measurement techniques (charge, surface potential, electric field).

Electrostatic manipulation of particles, droplets, and biological cells: Electrostatic forces on particles, including electrophoresis, dielectrophoresis and electrorotation. Applications, including electrostatic precipitators, separators, coating processes, and electrophotography. Electrostatic issues in fluidized beds and other solids handling processes. Biological/medical applications including control of biological cells and pharmaceutical powders. Microfluidics and Microelectromechanical Systems (MEMS). Coupled problems (thermal, flow, stress) with essential contribution of electrostatic phenomena.

Electrostatically driven or controlled fluid flow: Corona generated secondary electrohydrodynamic flow. Boundary layer control. Electrohydrodynamic pumping. Electro-rheology. Electrospinning and electrospraying. DC and AC Electroosmosis. Electrowetting. Applications including materials processing, thermal management, and flow control.

Electrostatics in the gas phase: Fundamental science of plasmas. Corona and dielectric barrier discharges. Electrical breakdown. Applications of plasma technologies, including environmental remediation of gas and liquid streams. Electrostatic discharges from charged surfaces - fundamentals, prevention, safety issues. Electrostatic phenomena in atmospheres, including lightning.
