For Advanced Materials Interfaces, 2018 was an enormous year: the journal’s effect factor additionally expanded from 4.279 (Journal Citation Reports 2017) to 4.834, confirming growing readership and citation; submissions to continued developing quick; and in spite of the rejection rate growing, the quantity of distributed articles expanded to 450.
Advanced Materials Interfaces has successfully launched a Hall of Fame (HoF) series of welcome just audit articles from best researchers in the field of interfaces. A commitment from this HoF arrangement was published in each issue in 2018, with some of these HoF survey articles among the best refered to articles in 2018. The HoF articles are gathered into an extraordinary virtual issue and featured on Advanced Science News.
Looking forward, 2019 will be an energizing year for Advanced Materials Interfaces: in February, the journal will turn five; the new effect factor will be announced in June; some incredible Special Issues are arranged; and significantly more! We anticipate sharing additionally energizing interface-related research with you in 2019.
An imperative piece of the journal is represented by the Editorial Advisory Board and we are very grateful to all our Board Members. We have additionally strengthened the international board with the addition of the following new members: Prof. Jennifer Rupp (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, USA), Prof. Sander Leeuwenburgh (Radboud University Nijmegen, NL), and Prof. Hailin Peng (Peking University, Beijing, China). The current list of Editorial Advisory Board Members of Advanced Materials Interfaces can be found here.
We are anticipating seeing your new and energizing exploration in research in Advanced Materials Interfaces in the coming year.
