Scope/Description:

In 1983, the two journals, Journal of Vacuum Science and Technology A and B were launched when the original Journal of Vacuum Science and Technology was split. JVSTA is devoted to publishing reports of original research, letters, and review articles on interfaces and surfaces of materials, thin films, and plasmas. JVSTA publishes reports that advance the fundamental understanding of interfaces and surfaces at a fundamental level and that use this understanding to advance the state of the art in various technological applications. The scope includes, but is not limited to, the following topics: -Applied and fundamental surface science -Atomic layer deposition -Electronic and photonic materials and their processing -Magnetic thin films and interfaces -Materials and thin films for energy conversion and storage -Photovoltaics, including inorganic and organic thin-film solar cells -Plasma science and technology, including plasma-surface interactions, plasma diagnostics plasma deposition and etching, and applications of plasmas to micro- and nanoelectronics -Surface engineering -Thin film deposition, etching, properties, and characterization -Transmission electron microscopy, including in situ methods -Tribology

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.

H-Index

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.
