How to publish in this journal


Multidisciplinary journal “Functional Materials” (“FM”) publishes original and review articles comprising results of theoretical and experimental studies, descriptions of preparation methods and practical application of inorganic and organic materials intended for various functional purposes. The main attention is given to: ways to creation of functional materials with preset properties (light-emitting materials, electro- and magneto-optical materials, semiconductors, ferroics, piezo- and pyroelectrics, superconductors, etc., its synthesis and design); structure, phase transformations and properties of single crystals, ceramics, composites, amorphous solids, liquid crystals, polymers, thin films, low-dimensional systems (wiskers, superlattices, heterostructures, surface layers), nanostrucrures (quantum dots and wires, nanocrystals, and their ensembles) as applied to materials science problems; modern methods of modeling, research and characterization of functional materials; problems and methods of application of functional materials in modern technologies (nanotechnologies, optics, electronics, detection of ionized radiation, light emitting devices, sensors, information recording systems, etc.); development of multifunction nanomaterials for the wide spectrum of biological and medical applications, research of their properties. “FM” was founded in 1993 by the Institute for Single Crystals (certificate of state registration: KB No 25) and issued quarterly, one volume per year.ndex Join the conversation about this journal

The set of journals have been ranked according to their SJR and divided into four equal groups, four quartiles. Q1 (green) comprises the quarter of the journals with the highest values, Q2 (yellow) the second highest values, Q3 (orange) the third highest values and Q4 (red) the lowest values.

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.

Total Cites 

Evolution of the total number of citations and journal's self-citations received by a journal's published documents during the three previous years.
Journal Self-citation is defined as the number of citation from a journal citing article to articles published by the same journal.

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.
