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: It’s All in the Mix: Jülich Researchers are Developing Fast-Charging Solid-State Batteries

There are currently great hopes for solid-state batteries. They contain no liquid parts that could leak or catch fire. For this reason, they do not require cooling and are considered to be much safer, more reliable, and longer lasting than traditional lithium-ion batteries. Jülich scientists have now introduced a new concept that allows currents up to ten times greater during charging and discharging than previously described in the literature. The improvement was achieved by a “clever” choice of materials with a focus on consistently good compatibility. All components were made from phosphate compounds, which are well matched both chemically and mechanically.

The low current is considered one of the biggest hurdles in the development of solid-state batteries. It is the reason why the batteries take a relatively long...

Im Focus: Color effects from transparent 3D-printed nanostructures

New design tool automatically creates nanostructure 3D-print templates for user-given colors
Scientists present work at prestigious SIGGRAPH conference

Most of the objects we see are colored by pigments, but using pigments has disadvantages: such colors can fade, industrial pigments are often toxic, and...

Im Focus: Unraveling the nature of 'whistlers' from space in the lab

A new study sheds light on how ultralow frequency radio waves and plasmas interact

Scientists at the University of California, Los Angeles present new research on a curious cosmic phenomenon known as "whistlers" -- very low frequency packets...

Im Focus: New interactive machine learning tool makes car designs more aerodynamic

Scientists develop first tool to use machine learning methods to compute flow around interactively designable 3D objects. Tool will be presented at this year’s prestigious SIGGRAPH conference.

When engineers or designers want to test the aerodynamic properties of the newly designed shape of a car, airplane, or other object, they would normally model...

Im Focus: Robots as 'pump attendants': TU Graz develops robot-controlled rapid charging system for e-vehicles

Researchers from TU Graz and their industry partners have unveiled a world first: the prototype of a robot-controlled, high-speed combined charging system (CCS) for electric vehicles that enables series charging of cars in various parking positions.

Global demand for electric vehicles is forecast to rise sharply: by 2025, the number of new vehicle registrations is expected to reach 25 million per year....
