Scope International Journal of Polymeric Materials and Polymeric Biomaterials is the official publication of the International Society for Biomedical Polymers and Polymeric Biomaterials (ISBPPB). This journal provides a forum for the publication of peer-reviewed, English language articles and select reviews on all aspects of polymeric materials and biomedical polymers. Being interdisciplinary in nature, this journal publishes extensive contributions in the areas of encapsulation and controlled release technologies to address innovation needs as well. The journal will consider articles on the following: -Encapsulation (Microencapsulation) -Controlled Release Applications (pharmaceutical science, medicine, food technology, agriculture, energy, etc.) -Polymeric Biomaterials -Biomedical Polymers -Polymeric Materials (specific to medical related applications) The journal will consider original research articles, reviews, and book reviews. Proposals for special issues in all the above areas are welcome and should be discussed with the Editor-in-Chief in the first instance.

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.
