AIP Publishing, a leading not-for-profit scholarly publisher in the physical sciences, is thrilled to announce APL Bioengineering has received inclusion in Journal Citation Reports™ (JCR) from Clarivate Analytics.
APL Bioengineering is a gold open access journal highlighting research dedicated to the advancement of physics and engineering of biological systems. Its inclusion in the JCR marks the journal as a leading platform for the bioengineering and biomedical research communities. It also means authors who publish in APL Bioengineering will benefit from the increased visibility of being further indexed — on top of the existing indexing and discoverability services they are already enrolled in.
Journal Citation Reports™ has provided researchers, institutions, and stakeholders with data-driven rankings of scholarly publications for more than four decades. It uses an array of citation metrics and descriptive data to ascertain and illustrate a given journal’s influence within its target research communities.
The metrics Journal Citation Reports™ cited in its listing of APL Bioengineering included an Immediacy Index of 1.885 and an Impact Factor of 6.586. In 2021, APL Bioengineering averaged 2,100 downloads per article and an impressive per-article average Altmetric score of 34. That year it also achieved a cite score of 8.1, placing it in the top quartile for all four of its categories.
“APL Bioengineering’s impressive inclusion in Journal Citation Reports™ and first impact factor of 6.586 not only reflects the significant commitment and hard work of the journal’s editorial team, authors, and reviewers; It highlights that our journal has indeed found its home in the global bioengineering community,” said the journal’s Editor-in-Chief Justin Cooper-White, University of Queensland. “I am absolutely delighted with this substantial achievement, setting us on a clear trajectory to realizing our vision to be THE journal where researchers, clinicians and industry working at the intersections of biology, physics, and engineering publish their high quality, impactful research advances.”
“AIP Publishing is pleased with APL Bioengineering’s inclusion in this year’s Journal Citation Reports, which represents the growth of the journal and its continued importance to the bioengineering field,” said Penelope Lewis, Chief Publishing Officer for AIP Publishing. “The research community has increasingly turned to APL Bioengineering as an outlet for significant research and for discovering critical developments in this broad and fast-moving field. I could not be more proud of the entire editorial team for the effort they have put into establishing this journal’s significance.”
APL Bioengineering is a global, gold open access journal that publishes research at the intersection of biology, physics, and engineering. The journal is the new home for bioengineering and biomedical research communities.
