How to publish in this journal


The Journal of Membrane Science and Research (JMSR) is an Open Access journal with Free of Charge publication policy, which provides a focal point for academic and industrial chemical and polymer engineers, chemists, materials scientists, and membranologists working on both membranes and membrane processes, particularly for four major sectors, including Energy, Water, Environment and Food. The journal publishes original research and reviews on membranes (organic, inorganic, liquid and etc.) and membrane processes (MF, UF, NF, RO, ED, Dialysis, MD, PV, CDI, FO, GP, VP and etc.), membrane formation/structure/performance, fouling, module/process design, and processes/applications in various areas. Primary emphasis is on structure, function, and performance of essentially non-biological membranes. 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.

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.
