EDP Sciences is pleased to share the progress of our journals in the recently announced Journal Citation Reports™ and CiteScores. The latest results not only demonstrate a collective and consistent performance across our publications but also highlight notable individual achievements within their respective fields.

In the 2023 release of the Journal Citation Reports, the Journal Impact Factor (JIF) has been presented with one decimal place instead of the usual three. This modification aims to encourage users to consider additional indicators and descriptive data in the JCR when making comparisons between journals.

Expansion of the JIF to include journals in the Emerging Sources Citation Index (ESCI) means that eight new journals published by EDP Sciences have now received an Impact Factor.

Key Highlights

Astronomy and Astrophysics (A&A): A&A continues to maintain its stellar reputation with an impressive Impact Factor of 6.5 showcasing consistent growth for the third consecutive year. It ranks 9 out of 69 in the Astronomy and Astrophysics category and is firmly placed in quartile 1. Furthermore, it boasts a high CiteScore of 9.8, thus solidifying its leading position in the field. A&A is now operating under the Subscribe to Open (S2O) open access model.

Journal of Space Weather and Space Climate: The Journal of Space Weather and Space Climate saw a 12% increase in its Impact Factor, now standing at 3.3. The journal jumped 5 places up the rankings in the Astronomy and Astrophysics category and 10 places in the Geochemistry & Geophysics category. In both categories it sits in quartile 2. It also receives a commendable CiteScore of 5.1, highlighting its growing importance and influence in the field of space weather and space climate research.

Mechanics & Industry: Mechanics & Industry received a notable 21% increase in its Impact Factor, now standing at 1.2. This marks the sixth consecutive year of increase and underlines the journal's growing recognition and its role in advancing knowledge in the field.

Metallurgical Research & Technology: Metallurgical Research and Technology reaffirms its valuable contributions to the domain of metals and alloys as indicated by a noteworthy 16% increase in its Impact Factor, which now stands at 1.1.

Mathematical Modelling of Natural Phenomena: Mathematical Modelling of Natural Phenomena emphasizes its role in facilitating mathematical modelling and simulation with an excellent CiteScore of 5.9 putting it in the 83rd centile. Notably, in 2020, MMNP became the first mathematics journal worldwide to transition to a Subscribe to Open (S2O) open access model, making significant strides in promoting accessible and inclusive scientific research.

Parasite: With a CiteScore of 5.2 and at the 91st centile, Parasite's commendable CiteScore highlights its significance in the field of animal science and zoology, with a specific focus on the study of parasites.

International Journal of Limnology (formerly Annales de Limnologie – International Journal of Limnology) is an important resource for freshwater scientists with a solid Impact Factor of 1, marking its fourth consecutive year of growth and demonstrating the significance of its contributions. This represents a 6% increase.

Acta Acustica deserves special recognition as it now boasts a unified Impact Factor of 1.4 marking consolidation and progress of impact factor following its title change in 2020.

Finally, we are delighted to share exciting news regarding journals included in the Emerging Sources Citation Index (ESCI). This year, all journals from EDP Sciences in this Index have received impact factors. EPJ Photovoltaics and Manufacturing Review have achieved impressive impact factors of 2.5 and OCL-Oilseeds and Fats Crops and Lipids an impact factor of 2.1. Notably, the following journals have received their first-ever impact factors, marking a significant milestone for these publications. SICOT-J, EPJ Applied Metamaterials, Matériaux & Techniques, Regenerative Medicine Research, and EPJ Nuclear Sciences & Technologies.

It is important to note that while these measurements are valuable, they should not be considered the sole indicators of success. They do however, reflect in a quantitative way the dedication and exceptional contributions of our authors, editors, and reviewers involved in the publication process.
