Scope The physica status solidi (pss) journal group is devoted to the thorough peer review and the rapid publication of new and important results in all fields of solid state and materials physics, from basic science to applications and devices. Among the largest and most established international publications, the pss journals publish reviews, letters and original articles, as regular content as well as in special issues and topical sections. physica status solidi (b) – basic solid state physics covers theoretical and experimental investigations of the structural, electronic, optical, magnetic, and thermodynamic properties of solid materials based on quantum solid state physics. Current topics include nanotubes and graphene, 2-d layered materials, strongly correlated systems, superconductivity, multiferroics, topological insulators, and semiconductors for device technology. Methods range from analytic modeling and computational approaches via growth and preparation to characterization with microscopy, diffraction, spectroscopy, magnetization, dielectric and electrical characterization and beyond.

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.
