2012 Impact Factors

You can trust Royal Society of Chemistry journals to deliver high quality content.

Our exceptional standards are reinforced by the recently published 2012 Journal Citation Reports ® :

Individual journal Impact Factor highlights include: Energy & Environmental Science (11.653), Chemical Science (8.314), Green Chemistry (6.828) and Chemical Communications (6.378).

Natural Product Reports is #1 in both the Chemistry: Medicinal and Chemistry: Organic categories with a figure of 10.178

And as for the rest of our journals:

  • Of the top 20 journals in the multidisciplinary chemistry category, six are from RSC Publishing. This is more than any other publisher.
  • When you look at 5-year Impact Factors, we have more in the top 20 than any other publisher
  • 34% of our journals have an IF above 5
  • 9 of our 29 journals are in the top 10% of their ISI category, and 20 are in the top quartile

And we’ve achieved all this alongside a four-fold increase in the number of articles published since 2007.

So the figures speak for themselves: for guaranteed impact, choose RSC Publishing.

*Chemistry Education Research and Practice is listed in the Education, Scientific Disciplines category. It is the highest ranked journal devoted solely to chemistry education.

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.

The 5-Year Impact Factor is the average number of times articles from a journal published in the past five years have been cited in the Journal Citation Reports year. For journals in subjects where citation activity continues to rise through several years, this metric allows more of their total citation activity to be included in a critical performance metric.

Data based on 2012 Journal Citation Reports ®, (Thomson Reuters, 2013).

    Dear,
    Why not IF for Journal of Materials Chemistry

    The 2012 Impact Factor for Journal of Materials Chemistry is 6.101! Please see here for more information: http://blogs.rsc.org/jm/2013/06/24/journal-of-materials-chemistry-impact-factor-increases-to-6-101/.

    While I strongle believe that the JMC series will continue to be vitally important journals of material science, the issue about their impact factor shoud be clarified. iIt is a question closely related to the graduation of students, especially for those in China. According to previous statement in your website, can I understand like this: Journal of materials chemistry A, B,C will co-share the impact factor of JMC until the first impact factors for the three new journals are released? I wish the editor gives a definite answer to this question.

    This blog has now been updated to reflect the inclusion of the Journal of Materials Chemistry figure in all the calculations. Plus, Chemistry Education Reasearch and Practice is now listed.

  21. Sam Keltie says:

    Thank you for you comment. Journal of Materials Chemistry and Journal of Materials Chemistry A, B and C are independent journals and will have different, independent impact factors. Journal of Materials Chemistry will have an impact factor in 2014 and 2015 (2013 and 2014 impact factors). Journal of Materials Chemistry A, B and C will have there own independent impact factors from 2015 (2014 impact factor). Journal of Materials Chemistry A, B and C will not co-share the impact factor of Journal of Materials Chemistry as they are independent journals. Since the parent
    journal divided, the standards and high quality expected
    of papers published in Journal of Materials Chemistry A, B and C have not changed.

    To Meloney Bartlett Ph.D.
    Head of Journal Publishing,
    I know it might sounds out of the field, I thankyou and I do enjoy and like to share the news I have just received about the 2012 IFs, and as I am also a contributor to Journals in the área of the Biochemical Society, such as the Biochemical Journal, (since the late sixties), I wonder if do you happen to know if they have published something alike the RSC Publishing blog.
    Yours, Prof. Dr. A.Batlle
