This International Journal is dedicated to the publication of original full-length papers, review articles and short communications of the highest quality that advance the development and application of engineering composite materials. These papers should identify problems that limit the performance and reliability of the composite material and composite part; and they should propose solutions to those problems that lead to innovation in design and the successful exploitation and commercialisation of composite materials across the widest spectrum of engineering uses. Papers that lead to the development and the manufacture of composite materials should focus on the quantitative descriptions of material systems and processing routes, together with a sound understanding of the physical processes and mechanisms that occur in the material during the shaping operations. Papers on the integration of composite selection and innovation in mechanical design should discuss issues at the micro and macro levels of structure that lead to the optimisation of composite material properties, component performance, durability and lifetime. Papers may include a knowledge of reactions between fibre and matrix in processing or between composite material and environment in service. Such understanding should be applied to the successful design and exploitation of the composite system and the composite component. Papers will include a knowledge of the management of time-dependent changes in microscopic and macroscopic structure and its exploitation from the material's conception through to its eventual obsolescence.

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.

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.
