Molecules Impact Factor

Here in this post, apart from Molecules Impact Factor, I have tried to compile all the necessary information a research scholar would seek before publishing an article in the journal.

About Molecules Journal

Molecules is a peer-reviewed open-access scientific journal that focuses on all aspects of chemistry and materials science. It was established in March 1996 and is published monthly by MDPI. From 1997 to 2001, Molbank was published as a section of the journal, before splitting into its own journal. The editor-in-chief is Farid Chemat.

Molecules was initially published by Springer-Verlag. In December 1996, Shu-Kun Lin resigned as editor and relaunched the journal with Molecular Diversity Preservation International (MDPI). Springer initially sued over naming rights, but eventually dropped the suit

Molecules Impact Factor

Impact Factor (IF) or often called journal impact factor (JIF) is an index provided by an analytics company named Clarivate. The impact factor is calculated by dividing the number of times the articles are cited in the last two years by the total number of publications in those two years.

  • Total Citations in 2020 and 2021 = 500
  • Total Number of Publications in 2020 and 2021 = 100
  • Impact Factor of the Journal in 2022 = 500/100 = 5
