Advanced Materials Technologies was launched in April 2016 with the aim to report on research that bridges the gap between materials science and real-world applications. Now, we celebrate an important and exciting milestone for Advanced Materials Technologies: With the recent release of the 2018 Clarivate Journal Citation Reports the journal has received its first (partial) Impact Factor of 4.6!
“We’re off to a strong, aggressive start, fueled by high quality papers from the leading figures in the field! Advanced Materials Technologies is already living up to its aim of publishing first-class, innovative research with a practical bent and a potential for broad engineering significance.” — Prof. John Rogers, Co-Chair of the Advisory Board.
As of today, more than 850 manuscripts have been received (and the number is increasing!) and well over 300 articles have been published in 27 issues. In Advanced Materials Technologies, devices represent a central and important theme of the journal. Popular topics include flexible electronics, sensors, fabrication, energy generation and storage; with carbon, graphene, nanostructures, nanotubes and nanoparticles all featuring prominently. Healthcare and optics are other important areas.
In other news, we welcome the following new members to our International Editorial Advisory Board: Hong-Bo Sun (Tsinghua University, China), Huisheng Peng (Fudan University, China), Jr-Hau He (King Abdullah University of Science and Technology, Saudi-Arabia), Kourosh Kalantar-zadeh (University of New South Wales, Australia), Kuniharu Takei (Osaka Prefecture University, Japan), Metin Sitti (Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems, Germany), Barbara Mazzolai (Italian Institute of Technology, Italy), Joshua Yang (University of Massachusetts, USA) and Shlomo Magdassi (Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Israel). Many thanks to outgoing board members JJ Baumberg and Jiang Chang for their support during the crucial launch phase of the journal.
