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.

Among the general public, solar thermal energy is currently associated with dark blue, rectangular collectors on building roofs. Technologies are needed for aesthetically high quality architecture which offer the architect more room for manoeuvre when it comes to low- and plus-energy buildings. With the “ArKol” project, researchers at Fraunhofer ISE together with partners are currently developing two façade collectors for solar thermal energy generation, which permit a high degree of design flexibility: a strip collector for opaque façade sections and a solar thermal blind for transparent sections. The current state of the two developments will be presented at the BAU 2017 trade fair.
As part of the “ArKol – development of architecturally highly integrated façade collectors with heat pipes” project, Fraunhofer ISE together with its partners...
At TU Wien, an alternative for resource intensive formwork for the construction of concrete domes was developed. It is now used in a test dome for the Austrian Federal Railways Infrastructure (ÖBB Infrastruktur).
Concrete shells are efficient structures, but not very resource efficient. The formwork for the construction of concrete domes alone requires a high amount of...
Many pathogens use certain sugar compounds from their host to help conceal themselves against the immune system. Scientists at the University of Bonn have now, in cooperation with researchers at the University of York in the United Kingdom, analyzed the dynamics of a bacterial molecule that is involved in this process. They demonstrate that the protein grabs onto the sugar molecule with a Pac Man-like chewing motion and holds it until it can be used. Their results could help design therapeutics that could make the protein poorer at grabbing and holding and hence compromise the pathogen in the host. The study has now been published in “Biophysical Journal”.
The cells of the mouth, nose and intestinal mucosa produce large quantities of a chemical called sialic acid. Many bacteria possess a special transport system...

Fiber-reinforced plastics (FRP) are frequently used in the aeronautic and automobile industry. However, the repair of workpieces made of these composite materials is often less profitable than exchanging the part. In order to increase the lifetime of FRP parts and to make them more eco-efficient, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) and the Apodius GmbH want to combine a new measuring device for fiber layer orientation with an innovative laser-based repair process.
Defects in FRP pieces may be production or operation-related. Whether or not repair is cost-effective depends on the geometry of the defective area, the tools...
