Journal Metrics

Usage
  • 23030Downloads 2021
    Springer measures the usage on the SpringerLink platform according to the COUNTER (Counting Online Usage of NeTworked Electronic Resources) standards.
  • 41.5 Usage Factor 2019/2020
    The Springer Journal Usage Factor 2019/2020 was calculated as suggested by the COUNTER Code of Practice for Usage Factors. It is the median value of the number of downloads in 2019/2020 for all articles published online in that particular journal during the same time period. The Usage Factor calculation is based on COUNTER-compliant usage data on the SpringerLink platform. (Counting Online Usage of NeTworked Electronic Resources) standards.

Impact
  • 1.119 Impact Factor 2021
    Journal Impact Factors are published each summer by Thomson Reuters via Journal Citation Reports ®. Impact Factors and ranking data are presented for the preceding calendar year.
  • 0.59Source Normalized Impact per Paper (SNIP) 2021
    Source Normalized Impact per Paper (SNIP) measures contextual citation impact by weighting citations based on the total number of citations in a subject field. The impact of a single citation is given higher value in subject areas where citations are less likely, and vice versa.
  • Q3Quartile: Physical and Theoretical Chemistry 2021
    The set of journals have been ranked according to their SJR and divided into four equal groups, four quartiles. Q1 (green) comprises the quarter of the journals with the highest values, Q2 (yellow) the second highest values, Q3 (orange) the third highest values and Q4 (red) the lowest values.
  • 0.30 SCImago Journal Rank (SJR) 2021
    SCImago Journal Rank (SJR) is a measure of scientific influence of scholarly journals that accounts for both the number of citations received by a journal and the importance or prestige of the journals where such citations come from.
  • 35H-Index 2021
    A journal has an H index of h if it published h papers each of which has been cited in other journals at least h times. Calculations are based on Scopus.

SCOPE

Colloid Journal  publishes the results of research in the area of physics and chemistry dealing with the disperse state of matter and interfacial phenomena. The journal covers experimental and theoretical works on a great variety of colloid and surface phenomena: the structure and properties of interfaces; adsorption phenomena and structure of adsorption layers of surfactants; capillary phenomena; wetting films; wetting and spreading; and detergency. The formation of colloid systems, their molecular-kinetic and optical properties, surface forces, interaction of colloidal particles, stabilization, and criteria of stability of disperse systems (lyosols and aerosols, suspensions, emulsions, foams, and micellar systems) are also topics of the journal.
Colloid Journal  also includes the electrosurface and electrokinetic phenomena, i.e., phenomena dealing with the existence of diffusion layers of molecules and ions in the vicinity of the interface.
The journal publishes reviews and original articles and welcomes manuscripts from all countries in the English or Russian language.

READERSHIP

Academic scientists, university professors, graduate and undergraduate students; and, to a certain extent, researchers from technology institutes and large industrial laboratories.
