How to publish in this journal


The Latin American Journal of Metallurgy and Materials, RLMM (Latinamerican Journal of Metallurgy and Materials) is a scientific journal dedicated to the field of Materials Science and Engineering. The RLMM was created in 1981 in order to continuously inform researchers, professionals and students about the scientific and technological advances made ​​in Latin America regarding the Materials Science and Engineering field. Its main interest is to publish original peer-reviewed research papers within this field (metals, polymers, ceramics, biomaterials, new materials and processes and composite materials). (a) Regular Articles: These are free contributions by authors who wish to disclose their results in the RLMM. These articles are peer-reviewed (see Peer Review Process). (b) Invited articles: These articles are written by recognized experts in the field. These are by invitation only. (c) Articles published in special issues of the RLMM as Supplementary Articles, dedicated to specific conferences proceedings. These articles are peer-reviewed by an "ad hoc" committee appointed by the organizers of these events. Join the conversation about this journal

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.

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.
