2018 Journal Impact Factors Physics

by | Jun 21, 2019

The 2019 Journal Citation Reports have been released, and the 2018 impact factors for selected physics journals are now available.

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

Laser & Photonics Reviews received an increase in its IF to 9.056. The journal publishes high-quality reviews and original research, showcased in the 10th anniversary series. Among highly cited 2016/17 articles is the review on nonlinear switching and solitons in PT‐symmetric photonic systems and the paper on an active dielectric metasurface based on phase‐change medium. 

physica status solidi (RRL) Rapid Research Letters is proud to announce its new IF of 3.729, establishing the journal’s important position in its field. Must-read highlights and special issues can be found here. Parent journals, physica status solidi a and physica status spolidi b, continue to provide high-quality content in applied and fundamental physics, such as the special issue on single-electron control in solid state devices and the highly cited report on solar blind photodetectors. 

Annalen der Physik experienced an increase in its IF to 3.276. Recent highlights include a highly cited special issue on many-body localization as well as a wide variety of current topics ranging from hydrogen sulfide superconductors to multimessenger astrophysics. 

Solar RRL, which launched in 2017, is already well-established within its field, publishing highly-cited reviews and original work, which emphasize the importance of this booming field as well as the popularity of this young journal. It is indexed in the Web of Science Emerging Source Citation Index with over 1700 citations for the 310 articles published so far.[2]
