Chemistry and Energy Journal Impact Factors

Below are the current (2016) impact factors (IF) for selected Journals in chemistry, materials science and energy of selected international publishers, including three publishing only Open Access articles.

RSC Publishing


ACS Publishing



Frontiers Media, Hindawi, MDPI

Published each year (mid June) in the Journal of Citation Reports by the former Institute of Scientific Information (today's Clarivate Analytics), the IF provides an indication of the average number of citations per paper. IF values for journals are calculated by dividing the number of citations in a year, by the number of citeable articles published in the preceding two years. This means that the higher the number of published issues, the more difficult becomes to get an high IF.

To learn more about the IF and other bibliometric indicators in chemical research: "On the use of the h-index in evaluating chemical research" (Chemistry Central Journal 7 (2013) 132).
