EDP Sciences is delighted to share the results for its journals of the 2020 journal Citation Reports® (JCR) published by Clarivate Analytics. Twenty-one EDP Sciences journals have received an Impact Factor, with almost two-thirds showing an increase in 2019. Overall, an increase of almost 3.5% has been recorded on last year and almost 11.5% on the year before.
2020 represents an important milestone for EDP Sciences, marking 100 years of academic publishing. EDP Sciences was founded in 1920 by renowned scientists such as Marie Curie, Paul Langevin, and Louis Lumière. We are pleased that as we celebrate our centenary, we can also applaud our editorial team for their support and commitment to publishing impactful science.
“As Managing Director of EDP Sciences, I am pleased to have the opportunity to commend our editors, reviewers, and authors for their dedication to our journals, making them a worthy home for academic research”, stated Agnès Henri. “We are mindful that there are many ways of measuring ‘impact’, nevertheless feel that success in the JCR is something to be congratulated.”
