Scope The journal provides a focal point for “membranologists” and a vehicle for publication of significant contributions that advance the science and technology of membrane processes and phenomena. The primary emphasis is on the structure and function of non-biological membranes, but papers bridging the gap between non-biological and biological membranes are sought. A broad spectrum of papers is encouraged: – theory of membrane transport – experimental data on membrane permeation – membrane structure and its relation to transport – membrane processes with a focus on membrane science aspects.

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.
