Catalysis Science & Technology’s latest Impact Factor: 5.365

Catalysis Science & Technology (CS&T) is pleased to announce its latest Impact Factor is 5.365*.

Catalysis Science & Technology is dedicated to publishing the highest impact articles reporting cutting-edge developments  across the catalysis science community. Original research articles report new catalytic discoveries that are a significant advance on previously published work, bringing conceptual advances, or molecular insights to catalytic processes and systems . The journal places equal focus on publications from the heterogeneous, homogeneous, organocatalysis and biocatalysis communities, thus appealing to both academic and industrial scientists.

Led by Editor-in-chief Piet van Leeuwen (Université de Toulouse), our dedicated international team of Associate Editors  welcome urgent Communications, high quality Papers, and authoritative Perspectives and Mini-reviews. The broad scope and interdisciplinary nature of the research published in the journal, coupled with rigorous peer review and rapid times to publication of 55 days** from receipt to acceptance, ensures your work will quickly attract the attention it deserves.

We would like to thank all our authors, readers, reviewers and Editorial & Advisory Board members for their continued support.

Find the all the RSC’s journals newly published 2017 Impact Factors* here.

*The Impact Factor provides an indication of the average number of citations per paper. Produced annually, Impact Factors are calculated by dividing the number of citations in a year, by the number of citeable articles published in the preceding two years. Data based on 2017 Journal Citation Reports® (Thomson Reuters).
