ICF Impact Factor announced: 4.036!

We are delighted to announce that the latest Impact Factor for Inorganic Chemistry Frontiers is 4.036, according to the Journal Citation Reports® recently released by Clarivate Analytics.

Inorganic Chemistry Frontiers (ICF) strives to promote inorganic research, broadly defined and deemed significant. The journal maintains a sustained impact and remains in the TOP 3 general inorganic journals publishing primary research, even as we saw significant growth in the number of articles published in the recent years.

Thank you to all who have contributed to the journal’s success so far – our authors, referees, readers and Editorial and Advisory Boards – we are very grateful for your support!

Emphasis of ICF will continue in interdisciplinary research where inorganic chemistry and organometallic chemistry meet related areas, including catalysis, biochemistry, nanoscience, energy and materials science. We look forward to a higher growth in both the excellence and visibility of the journal for the rest 2017 and beyond!
