Surface Science Spectra SSS offers convenient and easy access to peerreviewed spectral data from ongoing international industrial and academic research. SSS publishes reference comparison and technical spectra representing a range of spectra including XPS AES and SIMS. SSS features over 780 different materials with downloadable data as well as focused topics that contribute to the completeness of the archival database by including collections of spectra on materials of particular interest to the community. SSS systematically and uniformly archives surface data from a wide range of fields giving you usable reference spectra and the latest findings from new research and materials important to your work. SSS makes available each spectrum in its unsmoothed and unmanipulated form so that you know you are looking at original data not someone elses interpretation. By submitting your research to this important project you are joining a list of scientists and researchers who have contributed the important analytical reference information that surface scientists and lab analysts need. SSS is available online as well as in a yearly printed volume.

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.

Surface Science Spectra

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
