The 2019 Journal Citation Reports have been released, and the 2018 impact factors (IF) for selected materials science journals are available here.

With an IF of 25.809 (+18%), Wiley’s flagship journal in materials science, Advanced Materials, continues to grow for the 12th year in a row and remains the community’s first choice for high-impact publications in materials science. Advanced Energy Materials confirms its position as a top forum for high-quality energy research with an IF of 24.884 (+14%). Advanced Functional Materials arrives at an IF of 15.621 (+17%), another record high for the journal, which confirms its position as one of the top choices in materials science, nanotechnology, and related areas. 

Advanced Science is expanding its position as a premium open access journal with an IF of 15.804 (+27%). On the occasion of the journal’s 5th anniversary, a celebratory series has been published. Smalls IF hit 10.856, a testament to the importance of nano, meso, and micro research.

Advanced Optical Materials has received an IF of 7.125, publishing breakthrough discoveries in the field of photonics. Advanced Materials Technologies received its first full IF of 5.395 (+17%), cementing its position as the journal of choice for applied technology materials research.  Advanced Materials Interfaces maintains its position as an important journal in surface and interface science with an IF of 4.713. With an IF of 3.163, Energy Technology is continuing to grow very quickly within applied energy research.
