How to publish in this journal


Covering topics in solid state materials properties, processing, and applications, Critical Reviews in Solid State and Materials Sciences brings you the latest and most important new developments and understandings. New and emerging theoretical and experimental topics are emphasized in the disciplines of condensed matter physics, physical chemistry, materials, and electrical, chemical and mechanical engineering. Cross-disciplinary engineering and science specialties are also included. The reviews provide a critical assessment of the state-of-the-art for both experimental and theoretical studies. Topics Include: -Advanced processing techniques for new materials- Analysis of solid composition, bonding, structure, and topography- Deposition techniques to form the solid state and epitaxial layers- Diffusion and defects in the solid state- Electrical, optical, magnetic, and thermal properties of new organic and inorganic materials- Experimental techniques for characterization of materials and materials properties- Interfaces in the solid state- Mechanical properties of low dimensional solids- Nanoparticle processing and properties- Nucleation and growth in formation of the solid state- Optical spectroscopy of solids- Physics, chemistry. and theory of the solid state- Processing issues in thin film microelectronic and optoelectronic semiconductor devices- Quantum effects- Solid state band structure- Solid state energy sources- Theoretical modeling of solid state dynamics Join the conversation about this journal

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.

Total Documents

Evolution of the number of published documents. All types of documents are considered, including citable and non citable documents.

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.

% International Collaboration

International Collaboration accounts for the articles that have been produced by researchers from several countries. The chart shows the ratio of a journal's documents signed by researchers from more than one country; that is including more than one country address.

Citable documents 
Non-citable documents

Not every article in a journal is considered primary research and therefore "citable", this chart shows the ratio of a journal's articles including substantial research (research articles, conference papers and reviews) in three year windows vs. those documents other than research articles, reviews and conference papers.
