Scope

The journal of Progress in Natural Science: Materials International sponsored and organized by both Chinese Materials Research Society (C-MRS) and International Union of Materials Research Societies (IUMRS) started to publish its first issue in November, 2010. Progress in Natural Science: Materials International provides scientists and engineers throughout the world with a central vehicle for the exchange and dissemination of basic theoretical studies and applied research of advanced materials. The emphasis is placed on original research, both analytical and experimental, which is of permanent interest to engineers and scientists, covering all aspects of new materials and technologies, such as, energy and environmental materials; advanced structural materials; advanced transportation materials, functional and electronic materials; nano-scale and amorphous materials; health and biological materials; materials modeling and simulation; materials characterization; and so on. The latest research achievements and innovative papers in basic theoretical studies and applied research of material science will be carefully selected and promptly reported. Thus, the aim of this Journal is to serve the global materials science and technology community with the latest research findings. As a service to readers, an international bibliography of recent publications in advanced materials is published bimonthly. Join the conversation about this journal
Quartiles

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.

SJR

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.
