ChemPhysChem Continues to be a High-Impact Journal
The Institute for Scientific Information (ISI) recently published its 2002 journal citation report. Staff and editorial board members were pleased to learn that ChemPhysChem maintained its high standard and obtained a journal impact factor of 3.862. This places the journal well into the range of long-established journals and above its main competitors (see graphic).
ChemPhysChem was launched in 2000 as a sister journal of Angewandte Chemie, one of the most important chemistry journals world-wide. Frans C. De Schyrver (Leuven, Belgium) and James T. Hynes (Paris, France and Boulder, CO, USA) serve as co-chairmen of the editorial board. ChemPhysChem is intended to become the premier international source for important primary and critical secondary information on the whole of physical chemistry and chemical physics. "Its mission is to integrate this wide and flourishing field, and the high impact factor demonstrates that the journal has made headway to achieving this mission and serves the community well", says Editor Peter Gölitz. The journal is supported and co-owned by the French, German, Flemish and French Belgian, Czech, Hungarian, Austrian, Portugese, and Greek Chemical Societies.
Journal impact factors are a measure of visibility of scientific journals. The 2002 journal impact factor is calculated to be the number of cites in 2002 to articles published in the two preceeding years divided by the number of published articles in that time.
