ASME’s Position Strengthens Within the STEM Publishing Arena

Aug 7, 2020


The ASME Journal Program is pleased to announce that it has experienced significant increases in both the total number of citations and its 2019 Journal Impact Factor (JIF) rankings.
According to the 2019 Journal Citation Reports (published by Clarivate Analytics in June 2020), the total number of ASME journal citations increased by 4 percent compared to 2018 data. This increase in citations has resulted in a significant number of ASME journals receiving improved JIF scores, which reflect how ASME journals are ranked relative to others in their fields or disciplines.
ASME Applied Mechanics Reviews is the top-ranked ASME journal, with a JIF score of 6.733 in 2019. Several other journals experienced a greater than 20 percent improvement in their JIF in the 2-year period from 2017 to 2019. These journals include the ASME Journal of Energy Resources Technology (3.183), ASME Journal of Applied Mechanics (2.671), ASME Journal of Vibration and Acoustics (2.343), ASME Journal of Electrochemical Energy Conversion and Storage (1.845), ASME Journal of Solar Energy Engineering (1.641), ASME Journal of Thermal Science and Engineering Applications (1.544), ASME Journal of Engineering Materials and Technology (1.144), and ASME Journal of Medical Devices (0.805).
“Publishing the best engineering research and facilitating the widest dissemination for authors are the guiding principles of our publishing mission and philosophy, and the increased number of citations across the ASME Journal Program and improved JIFs are measures of our success. The success of the program directly flows from the journal editors, their associate editors, and the wider peer reviewer community. We offer our thanks for their continued support,” said Colin McAteer, director of publishing operations.
