Journal Metrics

The academic community has demanded more choice, accuracy and insight into journal performance, and Elsevier has responded with new metrics. In addition to the newly released 2014 Impact Factor,* we are happy to present SNIP and SJR: two accurate views of the true citation impact Elsevier's chemistry journals make.

Each year, the quality of papers published in our Physics journals is secured by the contribution of all our outstanding authors, reviewers and editors.

Find the highlights of the recently released 2014 Impact Factor:

We are proud to publish the three top journals in their category (Physics, Mathematical): Computer Physics Communications, ranking # 1, Communications in Nonlinear Science and Numerical Simulation, ranking #2and Journal of Computational Physics, ranking #3.

Physics of the Dark Universe has received a 1st Impact Factor of 8.571 and Nuclear Data Sheets ranks #2 in its category (Physics, Nuclear). Known for its high impact research on surfaces, interfaces, nanostructures and their applications, Applied Surface Science continues its upward trajectory, now the #2in its category (Materials Science, Coatings & Films). With Surface & Coatings Technology, #5 in this category, and Thin Solid Films ranking #6,we are proud to publish among the top journals in Surface Science

Regarding our radiation journals, we are delighted to announce that all journals in this category have increased their Impact Factor significantly! Applied Radiation and Isotopes and Radiation Physics and Chemistry now both rank #1 in the category “Nuclear Science & Techniques”.
