Scope Cellulose is an international journal devoted to the dissemination of research and scientific and technological progress in the field of cellulose, other lignocellulosic polymers, and other naturally occurring polysaccharides. Manuscripts are welcome that are based on the fundamental and applied sciences of physics, chemistry, biochemistry, and materials science of these polymers. Topics of interest include wood, fiber, biomass resources, chemical derivatives, and micro- and nano-sized products from such materials. Also included are aspects of applications of these polymers, such as in pulp, paper, textiles, and manufactured as well as natural fibers. Additional application areas of potential interest include materials, sensors, membranes, products with biological, medical, and biotechnological purposes, nutrition, energy, and fuels.

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.
