The Journal of Applied Physics (JAP) is an influential international journal publishing significant new experimental and theoretical results of applied physics research. Topics covered in JAP are diverse and reflect the most current applied physics research, including: Dielectrics, ferroelectrics, and multiferroics- Electrical discharges, plasmas, and plasma-surface interactions- Emerging, interdisciplinary, and other fields of applied physics- Magnetism, spintronics, and superconductivity- Organic-Inorganic systems, including organic electronics- Photonics, plasmonics, photovoltaics, lasers, optical materials, and phenomena- Physics of devices and sensors- Physics of materials, including electrical, thermal, mechanical and other properties- Physics of matter under extreme conditions- Physics of nanoscale and low-dimensional systems, including atomic and quantum phenomena- Physics of semiconductors- Soft matter, fluids, and biophysics- Thin films, interfaces, and surfaces Join the conversation about this journal
Quartiles

The set of journals have been ranked according to their SJR and divided into four equal groups, four quartiles. Q1 (green) comprises the quarter of the journals with the highest values, Q2 (yellow) the second highest values, Q3 (orange) the third highest values and Q4 (red) the lowest values.

SJR

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.
