Elsevier Announces Significant Increases in Impact Factors

19.07.2007
Elsevier, the leading publisher of scientific, technical and medical information products and services, today announced that more than 65 percent of its journals improved in impact factor, as reported in the 2006 Journal Citation Reports.

In addition, 53 Elsevier titles ranked number one in their respective categories, including: Seminars in Radiation Oncology (#1 in Radiology); Landscape and Urban Planning (#1 in Urban Studies); Gastroenterology (#1 in Gastroenterology & Hepatology); Annals of Emergency Medicine (#1 in Emergency Medicine); The Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology (#1 in Allergy), Biomaterials (#1 in Materials Science, Biomaterials); and Journal of Catalysis (#1 in Engineering, Chemical).

“The continued increase in impact factors across our journals in both Science & Technology and Health Sciences demonstrates progress in building world class content, reflecting the dedicated effort of our editors and publishing staff,” said Mayur Amin, Senior Vice President, Research and Academic Relations.

The impact factor is a measure of the frequency with which the average article in a journal has been cited in a particular year. The impact factor helps to evaluate a journal's relative importance, especially when compared with others in the same field.

Other notable results among Elsevier Journals include:

- The Lancet continued to surge ahead in medicine and confirmed its position as the second highest ranked journal in the field with a two point increase in Impact Factor.

- Cancer Cell and Immunity, two Cell Press journals, also showed significant increases in Impact Factor, adding over five and three points to their Impact Factors respectively.

- Biochimica et Biophysica Acta-Molecular Cell Research, Elsevier's oldest and biggest biochemistry journal, increased its impact factor substantially from 4.8 to 6.9 in 2006.

- Elsevier has the top four ranked titles in the electrochemistry category: 1) Biosensors and Bioelectronics; 2) Journal of Power Sources; 3) Electrochemistry Communications; and, 4) Electrochimica Acta.

Im Focus: Neutron star merger directly observed for the first time

University of Maryland researchers contribute to historic detection of gravitational waves and light created by event

On August 17, 2017, at 12:41:04 UTC, scientists made the first direct observation of a merger between two neutron stars--the dense, collapsed cores that remain...

Im Focus: Breaking: the first light from two neutron stars merging

Seven new papers describe the first-ever detection of light from a gravitational wave source. The event, caused by two neutron stars colliding and merging together, was dubbed GW170817 because it sent ripples through space-time that reached Earth on 2017 August 17. Around the world, hundreds of excited astronomers mobilized quickly and were able to observe the event using numerous telescopes, providing a wealth of new data.

Previous detections of gravitational waves have all involved the merger of two black holes, a feat that won the 2017 Nobel Prize in Physics earlier this month....

Im Focus: Smart sensors for efficient processes

Material defects in end products can quickly result in failures in many areas of industry, and have a massive impact on the safe use of their products. This is why, in the field of quality assurance, intelligent, nondestructive sensor systems play a key role. They allow testing components and parts in a rapid and cost-efficient manner without destroying the actual product or changing its surface. Experts from the Fraunhofer IZFP in Saarbrücken will be presenting two exhibits at the Blechexpo in Stuttgart from 7–10 November 2017 that allow fast, reliable, and automated characterization of materials and detection of defects (Hall 5, Booth 5306).

When quality testing uses time-consuming destructive test methods, it can result in enormous costs due to damaging or destroying the products. And given that...

Im Focus: Cold molecules on collision course

Using a new cooling technique MPQ scientists succeed at observing collisions in a dense beam of cold and slow dipolar molecules.

How do chemical reactions proceed at extremely low temperatures? The answer requires the investigation of molecular samples that are cold, dense, and slow at...

Im Focus: Shrinking the proton again!

Scientists from the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics, using high precision laser spectroscopy of atomic hydrogen, confirm the surprisingly small value of the proton radius determined from muonic hydrogen.

It was one of the breakthroughs of the year 2010: Laser spectroscopy of muonic hydrogen resulted in a value for the proton charge radius that was significantly...
