Scope The Open Materials Science Journal is an open access online journal which publishes research articles, reviews, case studies, guest edited thematic issues and short communications/letters in all areas related to materials science. The journal is committed to provide a platform for scientists working on natural and synthetic materials aimed at developing innovative novel concepts coupled with an understanding of basic theories and mechanisms. The scope of the journal covers theoretical aspects as well as practical applications of metals, alloys, metallic and non-metallic corrosion, refractories, ceramics, composites, polymers, fibres and fibre based materials, semiconductors, magnetic materials, nanomaterials, medical implants, biomaterials, forensic science, metallography, microtechnology, tribology, metamaterials, metallurgy, optical materials, natural materials, crystallography, textile reinforced materials, technical textiles and other related fields. The Open Materials Science Journal, a peer-reviewed journal, is an important and reliable source of current information on developments in the field. The emphasis will be on publishing quality papers rapidly and freely available to researchers worldwide.

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.

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.

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.
