Scope Journal of Physics D: Applied Physics, a leading international journal, reports cutting-edge multidisciplinary research across all areas of applied physics and the transition of those findings into new and innovative technologies. Alongside our current areas of strength in applied physics, we now include the physics of energy materials and devices and the biomedical and life sciences. We welcome contributions reporting on experimental, computational and theoretical investigations of applied physics. We also welcome papers emphasizing technology with conclusions that explore the underlying physics-based mechanisms and their wider implications. In addition to being scientifically correct, articles in Journal of Physics D: Applied Physics should make a significant advance in terms of new applied physics and related technologies. Articles that report solely on optimizing current technologies are not appropriate for the journal. Contributions should fall into one of the sections below. -Applied magnetism -Semiconductors and photonics -Low-temperature plasmas -Condensed matter: advanced and quantum materials -Condensed matter: nanodevices and nanostructures -Condensed matter: surfaces and interfaces -Applied biophysics -Energy

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.

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.
