Prof. Boccaccini marks 10 years as Editor-in-Chief of Materials Letters

Prof. Aldo R. Boccaccini, Scientific Board member of FunGlass Centre and Head of Institute of Biomaterials at University of Erlangen-Nuremberg, Germany, celebrates 10 years as Editor-in-Chief (EiC) of Materials Letters (LINK: https://www.journals.elsevier.com/materials-letters ). The journal is one of the “classical” journals in the field of materials science and engineering. It was founded in 1982 and has seen a continuous increase of the impact factor (IF) over the years, the current IF is 3.019. The journal belongs to the MaterialsToday extended family of journals in Materials Science, (LINK: https://www.materialstoday.com/journals ) published by Elsevier.

Marking 10 years as EiC of Materials Letters, Prof. Boccaccini said: “It is a great honour and a responsibility to be the Editor-in-Chief of Materials Letters, one of the most recognised journals in the materials science field. In the last 10 years the journal has continued to grow, in terms of the number of papers published and citations received. Indeed our editors’ team has grown accordingly – we have now an excellent team of 12 editors and two managing editors – whose expertise covers the most varied areas in the materials field. The journal published 1,650 papers in 2019 with around 50,000 total citations, articles published in Materials Letters were downloaded 2,227,422 times in 2019, highlighting the impact of the journal. I look forward to continue serving the materials science community as editor of one of the most respected journals in the field”.

According to the category “Materials Science, Multidisciplinary” in the Web of Science(R) data base, the journal featured in position 24 (out of 293 journals) in terms of total number of citations (2018 data). Prof. Boccaccini published in Materials Letters for the first time in 1995 a paper on sintering glass powder compacts (Boccaccini, A. R., et al., Materials Letters 24 (1995) 199-205) (during his time as post-doctoral researcher in the UK), and started serving in the Editorial Board of the journal in 2007.
