New Impact Factor for Green Chemistry

Green Chemistry received a 5-year impact factor* of 6.056 in the 2010 Journal Citation Reports released by Thomson ISI this week.  This reveals steady growth in the impact of Green Chemistry over the last 5 years, reinforcing the importance and maturity of the Journal. 

Five years ago Green Chemistry had an impact factor of 3.255 and its 2010 impact factor of 5.472 demonstrates the Journal’s increasing quality, putting it in the top 20 of all multidisciplinary chemistry journals.

We would like to thank our Editorial and Advisory Board members and all of our authors and referees for their contributions; this support is vital to the continuing success of Green Chemistry.

The release of the 2010 impact factors also brought good news for RSC Publishing with a rise in the average impact factor across all journals and some great individual performances… read more here.
