Increasing Impact - New ISI Impact Factors for the Macromolecular Journals

The Macromolecular Journals and their sister journal Plasma Process. Polym. again have achieved very good ratings. The recently published 2007 ISI Impact Factors show three of the journals listed among the top 10 most cited journals publishing original results in polymer science:

Macromol. Rapid Commun. enjoys further increases in Impact Factor (3.383) and Immediacy Index (0.787). Also the close to 20% increase in total citations corroborates MRC's position as one of the leading journals in the field of polymer science.

With a further increased Impact Factor of 2.046, Macromol. Chem. Phys. confirms its established position among the top journals in polymer science.

Macromol. Biosci. celebrates another significantly increased Impact Factor with a new value of 2.831, thereby confirming its position among the top 10 polymer journals while also being ranked among the top 5 biomaterials journals.

Macromol. Theory Simul. enjoys a significantly increased Impact Factor of 1.792, putting MTS back into the top 20 list of all journals publishing original results in polymer science.

Macromol. Mater. Eng. has stabilized its Impact Factor at 1.368, while increasing the number of total citations by more than 20%.

Macromol. React. Eng. in its first year celebrates an Immediacy Index of 0.449, making it one of the top 10 polymer science journals by immediacy.

Plasma Process. Polym. has reached a new Impact Factor of 2.132, confirming PPP's position among the top 10 polymer journals and also its leading position in low-temperature plasma science.

The editors of the Macromolecular Journals and Plasma Process. Polym. would like to thank all the Authors, Referees, and Editorial Board Members whose support and encouragement have made these successful developments possible!
