The scope of Applied Catalysis A: General includes the following: Scientific understanding of any catalytic phenomenon. Phenomena of relevance to current industrial processes, processes under industrial development or of interest for future commercial applications are particularly welcome. Heterogeneous, homogeneous and bio catalysis are included; scientific aspects of preparation, activation, aging, deactivation, rejuvenation, regeneration and start up transient effects of commercially interesting or representative model catalysts; scientific methods of characterization of catalysts, especially if they are applicable to industrial catalysts; chemical engineering aspects relevant to an improved understanding of catalytic phenomena or application to catalysis.

Impact Factor

Impact factor (IF) is a scientometric factor based on the yearly average number of citations on articles published by a particular journal in the last two years. A journal impact factor is frequently used as a proxy for the relative importance of a journal within its field. Find out more: What is a good impact factor?

III. Other Science Influence Indicators

Any impact factor or scientometric indicator alone will not give you the full picture of a science journal. There are also other factors such as H-Index, Self-Citation Ratio, SJR, SNIP, etc. Researchers may also consider the practical aspect of a journal such as publication fees, acceptance rate, review speed.

Applied Catalysis A: General

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
