How to publish in this journal


China Surface Engineering seeks to publish those papers which has comprehensively reported the development and research findings of surface engineering in and out of China, sticking to linking theory with practice, combining research and development together with spread application. Review describes new development and highlight future directions of a specialized or interdisciplinary significance in surface engineering. They should be focused on providing insights and summary/context on the published findings and introducing new concepts or viewpoints for solving the important unresolved questions by presenting the research background, approach, and outlook of the field. Most Reviews are solicited by the editors, but unsolicited submissions may also be considered. Research article presents important new research results in surface engineering of biological engineering, new energy of surface engineering, extreme environment mechanical surface engineering, green manufacturing and remanufacturing of surface engineering and surface engineering in the national key projects and major projects. The technologies involved are as follows, such as equipment management maintenance, remanufacturing engineering and surface modification, surface treatment technology, surface coating technology, composite surface technology and nano surface engineering technologies.

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.
