The Impact Factor of Polímeros
June 30th, 2020
Message to all members of the Editorial Council of Polímeros: Ciência e Tecnologia.
Dear readers, authors, reviewers and contributors.
The 2020 edition of the Journal of Citation Reports - JCR (Web of Science - Clarivate Analytics) published on June 29, 2020 brought good news for Polymers: Science and Technology. Our journal has now reached an impact factor of 1.000, representing an increase of more than 24% over the last evaluation. The continuous growth observed in the last six years is a consequence of the expansion and maturity of Polymer Science in our country, as well as the recognition of the quality of our journal by scientists from different countries. The Editorial Committee will pursue indicators that are even more expressive and we count on the constant collaboration of Brazilian and foreign scientists in honoring our journal with the submission of their best research results. We are grateful for the work of the members of the Editorial Board and the Editorial Council, the funding agencies, authors and reviewers, as well as the ABPol Secretariat, who provide all the support necessary for the success of Polymers.
