RSC Advances receives its first partial impact factor

Since its launch, RSC Advances has reached many major milestones.  From the publication of the first issue back in August 2011 to publishing its 2000th article in November 2012 – RSC Advances has been continually moving from strength to strength.

This month sees the Journal reach another significant milestone – achieving its first impressive partial impact factor of 2.562.* 

RSC Advances front coverWhy is it a partial impact factor?  To explain, the impact factor provides an indication of the average number of citations per paper, calculated by dividing the number of citations in a year by the number of citeable articles published in the preceding two years.  The number of citeable articles that the RSC Advances 2012 impact factor is based on is only 233, from the nine issues of Volume 1 published in August – December 2011.

Professor Mike Ward, Chair of the RSC Advances Editorial Board, comments “We are very pleased to announce the first partial impact factor of 2.562 for RSC Advances.  This is an excellent start and illustrates that RSC Advances is making itself noticed in the chemistry community: it is not just highly popular amongst authors – having grown from monthly to weekly issues in less than two years – but contains good quality work that is being noticed by others.  The important point is that this partial IF is based on citations to papers published in 2011.  As RSC Advances only started in mid-2011 the sample size is therefore small.  

We are grateful to all of our authors – and those who have cited their work! – for this encouraging start and look forward to greater things in the future.” 

With increased visibility of the articles published in RSC Advances the number of citations to the Journal is growing rapidly every week, a reflection of the high quality research being published in the Journal.
