physica status solidi citations and impact

The pss journal family is one of the largest international platforms and most important publications in solid state and materials physics. Overall more than 20,000 pss article citations appeared in the literature throughout 2012 and online article access topped the level of one million full-text downloads.

With a 2012 Impact Factor of 2.388, pss (RRL) continues to be the highest impact letter journal dedicated to solid state physics - the publication now includes Reviews@RRL, the special solar cell section, and further Focus issues to come. Total pss (RRL) cites have increased 1,437 in 2012 with an Immediacy Index of 0.527.

The 2012 Impact Factors of pss (a) - applications and materials science and pss (b) - basic solid state physics are 1.469 and 1.489. Total pss (a) and (b) cites have increased to 9,404 and 8,688 in 2012 proving the high visibility and broad relevance of their content. The highlights of the recent years include applied science papers on oxide and flexible electronics, nitride LEDs or advanced photovoltaic applications and basic research papers on nanolasers and metamaterials as well as nanomagnetism and superconductivity.

pss (c) - current topics in solid state physics publishes conference presentations and as such it is listed in the Web of Science Conference Proceedings Citation Index CPCI-S. In 2012, approx. 1000 citations referring to 1500 articles published in 2010/11 were counted, showing the critical selectivity and wide visibility of this proceedings journal.
