Computational Materials Science aims to enhance the communication between experimental materials research and computational work on both existing and new, advanced materials and their applications. It publishes articles of interest to physicists, chemists and materials researchers and engineers and to other scientists involved with materials phenomena and computational modelling. The journal covers computational modelling of materials properties and phenomena, ranging from the synthesis, characterisation and processing of materials, structures and devices to the numerical methodology of materials simulations.

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.

Computational Materials Science

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
