3D Printing and Additive Manufacturing is the only peer-reviewed journal on the rapidly moving field of 3D printing and related technologies. The Journal provides comprehensive coverage of academic research and industrial and commercial developments that have applications in medicine, education, food, and architecture. It also explores emerging challenges and opportunities ranging from new developments of processes and materials, to new simulation and design tools, and informative applications and case studies. The Journal addresses the important questions surrounding this powerful and growing field, including issues in policy and law, intellectual property, data standards, safety and liability, environmental impact, social, economic, and humanitarian implications, and emerging business models at the industrial and consumer scales. 3D Printing and Additive Manufacturing coverage includes: Novel additive manufacturing processes and techniques, Improvements of established methods and materials, Modeling and simulation of additive manufacturing processes, New materials, meta-materials, digital materials, lattices, and multi-material printing , Active and electronic materials fabrication, Hybrid additive and conventional manufacturing, Medical applications of 3D printing and bio-printing, Application of 3D printing in education, Advanced methods in product lifecycle design, testing and adaptation, Material mechanical properties, solidification processes for powders, liquids, and solids, Rapid tooling, remote manufacturing, Economic and social, and humanitarian considerations of democratizing manufacturing, Advances in personal 3D Printers and consumer adoption, Mass customization, new business models, Material performance standards and data exchange formats.

Impact Factor

The impact factor (IF) or journal impact factor (JIF) of an academic journal is a scientometric factor based on the yearly average number of citations on articles published by a particular journal in the last two years. In other words, the impact factor of 2020 is the average of the number of cited publications divided by the citable publications of a journal. A journal impact factor is frequently used as a proxy for the relative importance of a journal within its field. Normally, journals with higher impact factors are often deemed to have more influence than those with lower ones. However, the science community has also noted that review articles typically are more citable than research articles.

Other Journal Impact Indicator

Any journal impact factor or scientometric indicator alone will not give you the full picture of a science journal. That’s why every year, scholars review current metrics to improve upon them and sometimes come up with new ones. There are also other factors to sider for example, H-Index, Self-Citation Ratio, SJR (SCImago Journal Rank Indicator) and SNIP (Source Normalized Impact per Paper). Researchers may also consider the practical aspect of a journal such as publication fees, acceptance rate, review speed.

3D Printing and Additive Manufacturing


The h-index is an author-level metric that attempts to measure both the productivity and citation impact of the publications of a scientist or scholar. The index is based on the set of the scientist's most cited papers and the number of citations that they have received in other publications

SCImago Journal Rank (SJR)

SCImago Journal Rank (SJR indicator) is a measure of scientific influence of scholarly journals that accounts for both the number of citations received by a journal and the importance or prestige of the journals where such citations come from.
