How to publish in this journal


Lasers in Engineering publishes original (primary) research articles, reviews, short communications and letters on all aspects relating to the application of lasers in the many different branches of engineering and related disciplines. The topics covered by Lasers in Engineering are the use of lasers: in sensors or measuring and for mapping devices; in electrocomponent fabrication; for materials processing; as integral parts of production assemblies; within the fields of biotechnology and bioengineering; in micro- and nanofabrication; as well as the materials and processing aspects of techniques such as cutting, drilling, marking, cladding, additive manufacturing (AM), alloying, welding and surface treatment and engineering. Lasers in Engineering presents a balanced account of future developments, fundamental aspects and industrial innovations driven by the deployment of lasers. Modern technology has a vitally important role to play in meeting the increasingly stringent demands made on material and production systems. Lasers in Engineering provides a readily accessible medium for the rapid reporting of new knowledge, and technological and scientific advances in these areas.

The SJR is a size-independent prestige indicator that ranks journals by their 'average prestige per article'. It is based on the idea that 'all citations are not created equal'. SJR is a measure of scientific influence of 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 It measures the scientific influence of the average article in a journal, it expresses how central to the global scientific discussion an average article of the journal is.

Total Documents

Evolution of the number of published documents. All types of documents are considered, including citable and non citable documents.

Citations per document

This indicator counts the number of citations received by documents from a journal and divides them by the total number of documents published in that journal. The chart shows the evolution of the average number of times documents published in a journal in the past two, three and four years have been cited in the current year. The two years line is equivalent to journal impact factor ™ (Thomson Reuters) metric.

Cites per Doc

Evolution of the number of total citation per document and external citation per document (i.e. journal self-citations removed) received by a journal's published documents during the three previous years. External citations are calculated by subtracting the number of self-citations from the total number of citations received by the journal’s documents.

% International Collaboration

International Collaboration accounts for the articles that have been produced by researchers from several countries. The chart shows the ratio of a journal's documents signed by researchers from more than one country; that is including more than one country address.

Citable documents 
Non-citable documents

Not every article in a journal is considered primary research and therefore "citable", this chart shows the ratio of a journal's articles including substantial research (research articles, conference papers and reviews) in three year windows vs. those documents other than research articles, reviews and conference papers.
