Advances in Physics is the number one journal in Condensed Matter Physics: Impact Factor 37.000
09 July 2012
Taylor & Francis
Professor David Sherrington, the Editor-in-Chief of Advances in Physics and the publishing team at Taylor & Francis are delighted to announce the 2011 Impact Factor has achieved 37.000 ©2011 Thomson Reuters, 2010 Journal Citation Reports®
This places the journal 1/69 worldwide in condensed matter physics, 2/378 worldwide of all assessed physics journals, and 10/11224 worldwide of all journals covered by Thomson Reuters, Journal Citation Report®.
David Sherrington, Emeritus Professor at the University of Oxford, declared:
“For this success, thanks are due and offered to the authors, referees and citing readers who have made the achievement possible. Concerning the journal's relative place in the tables, it can be remarked that this is not the first time it has headed a subject list; indeed it was first in Condensed Matter Physics in every year from 1998 through 2003 and was first in all Physics in 2000 and 2001. Having regained the CMP crown my colleagues and I shall be aiming to regain the Physics crown.”
The three articles that garnered the highest number of citations in the 2011 measurement period are on the hot topics of superconductivity, multiferrocity and graphene.

Advances in Physics publishes authoritative critical reviews by experts on topics of interest and importance to condensed matter physicists. It is intended for motivated readers with a basic knowledge of the Journal’s field and aims to draw out the salient points of a reviewed subject from the perspective of the author. The Journal's scope includes condensed matter physics and statistical mechanics: broadly defined to include the overlap with quantum information, cold atoms, soft matter physics and biophysics.
Last year, Advances in Physics celebrated its 60th Anniversary. The Editorial of the Diamond Jubilee issue is free to read online at www.tandfonline.com/toc/tadp20/60/1
