Advanced Structural and Chemical Imaging (ASCI) serves as an interdisciplinary forum covering the entire field of advanced imaging. Particularly welcome are multi-modal studies exploring the links among imaging, diffraction, spectroscopy, data processing, and large-scale data analysis for the purpose of elucidating structure-function and structure-property relationships in atomic and molecular systems. The journal provides a dedicated platform for knowledge sharing among scientists using these imaging and analysis techniques but who may be unaware of important developments in complementary sub-fields. Coverage includes the emerging area of dynamic imaging at various orders of magnitude in spatial and temporal resolution from microns to angstroms and from milliseconds to femtoseconds. With the common need to deliver high-quality images and analyses using multiple imaging tools, forefront data handling, and mathematical methods for processing and simulations in fields as diverse as physics, chemistry, molecular and cell biology, pharmaceutical science, and materials science and engineering, ASCI brings together methods and results that are currently spread over many discipline- or technique-specific journals.Topics appropriate to the journal include but are not limited to: Structural analysis of organics, membrane proteins, and macromolecules; Structural analysis of cell organelles and membrane microdomains; Structural analysis of inorganics and nanocrystals; Structural analysis of crystalline surfaces and interfaces, 2D crystallography, surface reconstructions; Full chemical analysis of crystalline phases by combining atomic level structural and spectroscopic analyses; Polycrystal orientation and phase mapping/analysis, texture and interface analyses at the nanometer length scale; Large scale microscope data acquisition and processing; Reconstruction algorithms for 3-D imaging and compressed sensing.

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.

% International Collaboration

International Collaboration accounts for the articles that have been produced by researchers from several countries. The chart shows the ratio of a journal's documents signed by researchers from more than one country; that is including more than one country address.

Citable 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.
