Scope Current Opinion in Chemical Engineering is devoted to bringing forth short and focused review articles written by experts on current advances in different areas of chemical engineering. Only invited review articles will be published. The goals of each review article in Current Opinion in Chemical Engineering are: 1. To acquaint the reader/researcher with the most important recent papers in the given topic. 2. To provide the reader with the views/opinions of the expert in each topic. The reviews are short (about 2500 words or 5-10 printed pages with figures) and serve as an invaluable source of information for researchers, teachers, professionals and students. The reviews also aim to stimulate exchange of ideas among experts. Themed sections: Each review will focus on particular aspects of one of the following themed sections of chemical engineering: 1. Nanotechnology 2. Energy and environmental engineering 3. Biotechnology and bioprocess engineering 4. Biological engineering (covering tissue engineering, regenerative medicine, drug delivery) 5. Separation engineering (covering membrane technologies, adsorbents, desalination, distillation etc.) 6. Materials engineering (covering biomaterials, inorganic especially ceramic materials, nanostructured materials). 7. Process systems engineering 8. Reaction engineering and catalysis.

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.
