Since its start as an independent journal in 2013 Advanced Optical Materials has constantly expanded its impact. One measure that proves this in numbers is of course the impact factor which has recently been updated by Thomson Reuters to 5.36.
Apart from that articles published in Advanced Optical Materials receive great attention by the word that is spread in the international press as well as social media.
An easy way to track an article’s impact in media is the Altmetrics score which is displayed on the journal homepage for every article published. On the Altmetric website the score’s meaning and its significance are explained in detail.
Advanced Optical Materials invites you to read some selected articles that reveal a particularly high Altmetrics score for free:
