Scope Solid State Sciences is open to all the aspects related to the solid state: chemistry, structure combined with properties, physics, technology, modelling and simulation. The chemical aspects concerns novel ways of synthesis, new inorganic ceramics, layered, porous and glassy solids, hybrid organic-inorganic compounds synthesised either in the bulk or as thin films or nanoparticles and the associated chemical properties (catalytic, sensors, ion exchangers, gas separation...). The physical aspects relate to the structures and surface properties. A particular emphasis is put on electrical (super, metallic or semiconductors, ionic and mixed conductors, dielectrics), on magnetic and magnetooptical features associated with the structures, and on information storage.

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.

External Cites per Doc 
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.

Citable documents 
Non-citable documents
