I am delighted to announce that Polymer Chemistry’s inaugural impact factor is 5.32! This is a fantastic achievement for the journal and I would like to thank our Editorial and Advisory Board members and our authors, referees and readers.
Polymer Chemistry is now firmly established as a leading journal in the field, also demonstrated by its #1 immediacy index of all original research journals in the Polymer Science category of the 2011 Journal Citation Reports ®.
The immediacy index is a measure of how quickly articles are cited, the 2011 immedicay index is an average of how many citations articles published in 2011 received during the year they were published.
