Polymer Chemistry is pleased to announce that its latest Impact Factor is 5.687.
Polymer Chemistry is the home for the most innovative and exciting polymer research, with an emphasis on the synthesis of polymers and their applications. Led by Editor-in-Chief David Haddleton, and our expert team of international Associate Editors and Editorial Board members, Polymer Chemistry has the highest immediacy index (1.408) of any primary research journal in the Polymer Science category.
Immediate impact: Our Immediacy Index has been consistently higher than those of our competitors since our launch.
High citation rate: We have a higher fraction of articles cited than our competitors, with 98% of papers receiving at least 1 citation.*
Rapid publication: We have an average time from receipt to publication of just 50 days, and less than 19 days from receipt to first decision.
Continued growth: For the 6th year in a row both our number of publications and our impact factor have increased.
We are extremely grateful to all our readers, authors and referees for their contribution to Polymer Chemistry’s continued success, and to our Editorial and Advisory Board members for their hard work and dedication.
