The Journal of the American Ceramic Society (JACerS), edited by David J. Green, John Halloran, David W. Johnson, and Lisa Klein, is now ranked number one in the Materials Science-Ceramics category with an impact factor of 2.428 (2012 IF = 2.107). JACerS continues to far outpace all other ceramic-related journals with more than 32,500 total cites in 2013.
The International Journal of Applied Glass Science (IJAGS), edited by L. David Pye, is ranked number five in the Materials Science-Ceramics category with an impact factor of 1.710 (2012 IF = 1.548). IJAGShas established itself as an indispensable source of knowledge on the application of glass science and engineering across the entire materials spectrum
The International Journal of Applied Ceramic Technology (ACT), edited by Hua-Tay Lin, continues to publish cutting-edge applied research and development work focused on the commercialization of engineered ceramics, products and process. ACT is ranked number eight in the Materials Science-Ceramics category with an impact factor of 1.215 (2012 IF = 1.154).
“Though only one measure of quality, the across-the-board increases in impact factors are a testament not only to the people who work on our publications, but the authors who choose to publish in them,” says Mark Mecklenborg, ACerS Director of Membership, Meetings and Technical Publications. “This recognition of their hard work is much deserved, and we congratulate our editors, authors, and colleagues at Wiley.”
“I am very pleased to hear about the 2013 impact factor for the Journal of the American Ceramic Society,” adds Green, who is also president of ACerS. “Although this metric for scientific quality of a journal is most well known, our philosophy for JACerS considers other factors that are also important in truly assessing quality. These include total cites, article longevity, eigenfactor, thoroughness and speed of reviews, reviewer selection, user-friendly submission process, number of downloads, and figure quality, among others.”
Wiley publishes nearly 1,500 peer-reviewed journals and 1,500-plus new books annually in print and online, including the above titles from ACerS (http://ceramics.org/
Founded in 1898, The American Ceramic Society is the leading international professional membership organization for ceramic, glass, and materials scientists, engineers, researchers, manufacturers, sales professionals, educators, and students. ACerS publishes refereed journals, periodicals, and books; organizes meetings and expositions;
