The 2005 Impact Factor is for the Journal of Macromolecular Science, Part C: Polymer Reviews, the title under which Polymer Reviews was published through 2005. Thomson Scientific began indexing Polymer Reviews in 2006, its first year of publication under its new title. Because Impact Factors are calculated from two years' worth of journal articles, Polymer Reviews will not have an Impact Factor until the 2008 edition of the Journal Citation Reports publishes in 2009.
Polymer Reviews publishes topical issues, consisting of invited high quality reviews on topics of current interest in all areas of macromolecular science and engineering. Areas of particular interest are biomedical applications, organic electronics and photonics, nanostructures, micro- and nano-fabrication, biological molecules (DNA, proteins, carbohydrates), polymers for renewable energy and the environment, and polymers at the interfaces with other disciplines. Articles may either provide a complete, broad review of a topic, or may concentrate on the author's own work, placing that work in the context of the broader field.
Please note that Polymer Reviews only publishes invited articles. Unsolicited articles will not be accepted, and will be returned to the author without review.
