Message to all members of the Editorial Council of Polímeros: Ciência e Tecnologia.
June 17th, 2016
It is my great pleasure to communicate that the impact factor of Polimeros is raising again. It was 0.474 in 2014 and now stands at 0.498. The five-year impact factor has not raised yet, however, it will increase with the increasing of the annual impact factor.
This tendency is due to the increasing relative number of papers published in English and the efforts made by each of us to improve the quality of the papers, citing articles published in our journal, whenever adequate.
Polímeros published in the years 2008 – 2010 the most cited papers so far, most of them as review articles. To increase our impact factor this council should seek and encourage authors to submit review articles on actual and important topics related to polymers.
Congratulations to our contributors, to the editorial committee and to the editorial council.
The President of the Editorial Council
Prof. Marco Aurelio De Paoli
