Scope The Journal of Reinforced Plastics and Composites is a fully peer reviewed international journal that publishes original research and review articles on a broad range of topics on today's reinforced plastics and composites including: Polymers (with or without fiber or particulate fillers) intended for engineering uses, including automotive and aerospace industries, building and constructions, wear and corrosion, biomedical devices and sensors, electronic and electrical applications. Composite material data that are comprehensive, demonstrate some unique feature or new phenomenon. Testing, predictive models, analysis and computational methods for the design of structures constructed from composite materials. Novel processing and fabrication methods. Reviews of special topics such as recycling, environmental effects, novel materials, computer-aided design, predictive modelling, and "smart” composites.

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.

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.

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.
