Other success stories include the first appearance of Advanced Energy Materials, entering the JCR with an Impact Factor of 10.043 putting it in the top ten of all five of its JCR subject categories. Advanced Energy Materials joins the successful Advanced Materials series, which includes titles such as Advanced Functional Materials (9.765) and Advanced Materials (14.829). Collectively, these journals appear in the top ten of a JCR subject category 15 times, asserting the traction of this journal series within the scientific community.
This year also sees a continuing increase in IF of CA -- A Cancer Journal for Clinicians, published on behalf of The American Cancer Society. Last year this journal became the first to achieve an IF over 100 and has this year broken its own record with an IF of 153.459 at 0% self-citation, a 51% increase from its 2011 IF. The Impact Factors of its two sister titles, Cancer (5.201) and Cancer Cytopathology (4.434), also increased.
The WIRES (Wiley Interdisciplinary Reviews) portfolio has continued to increase in strength, with seven WIRES titles now indexed in the JCR, three of which received their first IF this year.
Impact factors are a metric that reflect the frequency that peer-reviewed journals are cited by researchers, and are often used as a tool for evaluating a journal's quality.
Highlights in Chemistry, Physical Sciences and Engineering:
Four publications rank at number one in their category this year, including Computer-Aided Civil and Infrastructure Engineering (4.460 and number one in three categories); Acta Crystallographica Section D which is distributed on behalf of the IUCR and further increa
