6 reasons to celebrate – free for 6 weeks

Journal of Materials Chemistry’s Impact Factor rises to 5.97We are delighted that Journal of Materials Chemistry’s Impact Factor increased to just under 6 this year (if you want to be precise its technically 5.968). This is the journal’s highest ever Impact Factor and we would like to thank our authors, referees, readers, guest editors and Editorial and Advisory Board members for all your contributions.

So to celebrate and say thanks we’ve made 6 of our most read reviews, full papers and communications free to read for 6 weeks. We hope you enjoy reading them.
