How to publish in this journal


"Microsystem Technologies - Micro- and Nanosystems. Information Storage and Processing Systems" is intended to provide rapid publication of important and timely results on electromechanical, materials science, design, and manufacturing issues of these systems and their components. The MEMS/NEMS (Micro/NanoElectroMechanical Systems) area includes sensor, actuators and other micro/nanosystems, and micromechatronic systems integration. Information storage systems include magnetic recording, optical recording, and other recording devices, e.g., rigid disk, flexible disk, tape and card drives. Processing systems include copiers, printers, scanners and digital cameras. All contributions are of international archival quality. These are refereed by MST editors and their reviewers by rigorous journal standards. The journal covers a wide range of interdisciplinary technical areas. It brings together and cross-links the knowledge, experience, and capabilities of academic and industrial specialists in many fields. Finally, it contributes to the economically and ecologically sound production of reliable, high-performance MEMS and information storage & processing systems.

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.

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.
