How to publish in this journal



- 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.

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.

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.
