Polímeros: Ciência e Tecnologia – A new and higher Impact Factor (1.611)
June 30th, 2022
Dear readers, authors, reviewers, and contributors.
The new edition (2022) of the Journal of Citation Reports - JCR (Web of Science - Clarivate Analytics) was published on June 30, 2022. We are happy to share the new Impact Factor of Polímeros: Ciência e Tecnologia of 1,611. We hope that the continued growth in the number of citations will promote a virtuous circle with the submission of more and better papers which in turn will lead to new and greater impact factors. Considering the period from 2014 to 2022, the impact factor of our journal grew by 240% and compared with the last evaluation (2021) the increase was nearly 8%. The increase in the number of citations of published articles is a consequence of the greater visibility and consolidation of our journal as a quality reference in the field of Polymers. We are grateful for the work of the members of the Editorial Council and the Editorial Board, funding agencies, authors, and reviewers, as well as the ABPol Secretariat, who provide all the necessary support for Polímeros success.
