eScience | First Impact factor: 42.9, established by Nankai University, ranks First among Domestic Academic Journals in 2024 Journal Citation Reports


Recently, Clarivate has released the 2024 Journal Citation Reports (JCR). eScience, an international academic journal co-launched by Nankai University and KeAi, has the first impact factor (IF) of 42.9, ranking in the Q1 in the two catagories of Electrochemistry and Materials Science Multidisciplinary. It ranked first among 45 journals in the field of Electrochemistry, third among 438 journals in the field of Materials Science Multidisciplinary, thirty-first among all journals, and first among domestic journals, marking a major breakthrough.

eScience (ISSN: 2667-1417; CN12-1468/O6) was established in 2021. The founding Editor-in-Chief is Professor Jun Chen from Nankai University. He is an academicaian of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, a fellow o f the World Academy of Sciences (TWAS). eScience is a high-quality academic journal on the latest and finest scientific and technological research in interdisciplinary fields related to energy, electrochemistry, electronics, and environment. eScience has been indexed by ESCI, CAS, Scopus and DOAJ.

Scientific research in the fields related to electrochemistry/energy in China has been booming in recent years, and the number of scientific researchers engaged in electrochemistry/energy-related fields is increasing year by year. A huge number of papers in related fields are published every year. However, there is little progress in the establishment of electrochemistry/energy-related journals in China, and there is a lack of platforms for the publication of important interdisciplinary scientific and technological achievements in chemistry, materials, energy, and engineering fields. In this context, eScience, with the support of Nankai University and its College of Chemistry, is founded to act as an academic exchange platform for domestic and foreign scientific researchers, draw more outstanding scientists at home and abroad to publish important results, raise China’s academic influence and international status in electrochemistry, energy, engineering and its interdisciplinary fields, and contribute to the implementation of major national “carbon peaking” and “carbon neutrality” strategies.

Going forward, eScience will promote the communication and interaction with overseas scholars and students, and explore multi-dimensional communication and dissemination approaches across channels and platforms, so that the papers published in eScience can be ‘visual, audible and communicative’, and the idea of taking root in China, embracing the world and leading the future’ can be realized, the person in charge of the journal said
