Metallurgy Journal Impact Factors

You may be familiar with Journal Impact Factors from Thompson Rueters. Well, in 2013 google released it’s own h-5 index which ranks the journal citations for last 5 years.

Here is google’s list of the ‘top’ 20 metallurgy journals.

6 International Journal of Refractory Metals and Hard Materials 27
7 Journal of Thermal Spray Technology 25
8 ISIJ International 25
9 Materials Science and Technology 24
10 Journal of Materials Engineering and Performance 23
11 Science and Technology of Welding and Joining 22
12 Metallurgical and Materials Transactions B 21

  1. 4 of my papers in top 10, not bad:)

  2. no Acta and Scripta?

  3. They must not be categorised as a Metallurgy journal, and presumably just miss out from being in the category of materials engineering.

    You can find the numbers by searching for the journal title. here

    Acta Materialia 71
    Scripta Materialia 50
