Advanced Functional Materials strengthens its standing as a leading full-paper general materials science journal with its further increased 2014 IF of 11.8. This journal’s first Impact Factor above 11 was achieved due to highly cited articles such as
Sodium-Ion Batteries by Michael D. Slater et al. (more than 330 citations)
Advanced Asymmetric Supercapacitors Based on Ni(OH)2/Graphene and Porous Graphene Electrodes with High Energy Density by Fei Wei et al. (more than 300 citations)
“I am happy to see this re-approval of our successful publishing strategy as Advanced Functional Materials underlines its position as a top choice of the materials science community. I’m very pleased with this result and thank the authors, reviewers, and readers who contribute to the journal,” said Jörn Ritterbusch, Editor-in-Chief.
Advanced Materials Interfaces publishes top-level research on interface technologies and effects. Considering any interface formed of solids, liquids, and gases, the journal ensures an interdisciplinary blend of Physics, Chemistry, Materials Science, and Life Sciences. Its first impact factor will be announced in 2016. To get an impression of the journal, please take a look at the following articles:
Nanoscale Adhesive Properties of Graphene: The Effect of Sliding History by Robert W. Carpick and co-workers
A Route Towards Sustainability Through Engineered Polymeric Interfaces by Karen K. Gleason’s group
This year Advanced Optical Materials received its first ever impact factor. With this partial one-year impact factor of 4.06 the journal underlines its position among top optics journals.

Particle & Particle Systems Characterization, which was launched into the Advanced Materials family of journals at the start of 2013, has received its first partial impact factor (based on just one year of citations). This first result of 3.08 provides a good foundation for steady growth in the coming years. At Particle we focus on publishing interdisciplinary research on the synthesis, characterization and application of particles in biomedicine, catalysis, environmental science, micro/nano-electromechanical applications, micro/nano-fluidics, molecular electronics, photonics, sensing and beyond, thus catering to a large readership. Start exploring the journal by reading three highly accessed articles:
High-Capacity Anode Materials for Lithium-Ion Batteries: Choice of Elements and Structures for Active Particles by Naoki Nitta and Gleb Yushin*
Graphene Quantum Dots by Mitchell Bacon, Siobhan J. Bradley and Thomas Nann*
Noble Metal Clusters: Applications in Energy, Environment, and Biology by Ammu Mathew and Thalappil Pradeep*
Energy Technology received its first ever impact factor this year. This partial one-year impact factor of 2.82 provides a strong foundation for Energy Technology as a leading journal in the important and ever-expanding field of applied energy research.
