Synthetic Metals - ISSN 0379-6779
Source Normalized Impact per Paper (SNIP): 0.764 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): 0.675 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: 2.435 (2016) 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.

Synthetic Metals is a journal dealing with research on the physics, chemistry and applications of organic and carbon electronic materials such as electronic polymers and electronic molecular materials including novel carbon architectures.

Examples of materials within the scope of this journal are:
• conducting and semiconducting polymers and molecular materials
• fullerenes, carbon nanotubes, related novel carbon architectures and nanoelectromechanical systems (NEMS)
• supramolecular conjugated architectures
• nanoscale electronic molecular and electronic polymer materials
• organic charge-transfer compounds and metal chain compounds
• functional pi-conjugated systems
• organic-inorganic electroactive hybrids including perovksites
• molecular- and polymer-based magnets and ferroelectrics.

The journal publishes original research papers, short communications and reviews. Original research papers and short communications should present a significant advance in the understanding or application of these materials and/ or devices made from them. Experimental, theoretical and application papers on the chemistry, physics and engineering of these materials and their electrical, photonic and magnetic properties are encouraged for submission. Papers on electronic, optoelectronic, electroluminescent, lasing, solar cell, sensor, actuator, biological and other potential applications of these materials are also welcome.
