- The Journal of Alloys and Compounds is an international peer-reviewed medium for the publication of work on materials comprising compounds as well as alloys. Its great strength lies in the diversity of disciplines which it encompasses, drawing together results from materials science, physical metallurgy, solid-state chemistry and physics. The interdisciplinary nature of the journal is evident in many subject areas. Experimental and theoretical approaches to materials problems require an active interplay between a variety of traditional and novel scientific disciplines. - The journal will not consider topics on liquid alloys, traditional steel, wear, creep, welding and joining, organic materials and polymers, coordination chemistry, ionic liquids, catalysis and biochemistry; it will not consider papers reporting only syntheses without any properties, purely computational papers without sufficient experimental validation, CALPHAD papers without regard to experimental observations. The submission of papers on technology of materials and processing is not encouraged. First principle calculations can only be accepted, if the system has already been proven in experiment or if this is required for a dedicated application. Technical reports will not be accepted. - The work published in the journal should comprise studies on synthesis and structure combined with investigations of chemical and physical properties of alloys and compounds, contributing to the development of areas of current scientific interest. - Papers submitted for publication should contain new experimental or theoretical results and their interpretation. The Journal of Alloys and Compounds provides a unique international forum where materials scientists, chemists and physicists can present their results both to researchers in their own fields and to others active in related areas.

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


Journal of Alloys and Compounds

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.
