Abstract

Polymer Chemistry is five years old this year and, looking back, everybody involved with the Journal is delighted with the progress and impact that the Journal has made in this time. Five years is not a longtime in publishing but already the Journal has established itself as one of the leading journals in polymer science. The 2013 Impact Factor came out at 5.368, which is our highest to date, with the quality of Polymer Chemistry continuing to improve. Increasingly, polymer scientists think of Polymer Chemistry as a natural home for their best work. In particular, it seems that the Journal is becoming a forum for the most topical and urgent work in the field; our immediacy index, which is the average number of times that papers published in a particular year are cited in that year, is currently 1.713 – #1 out of all primary research polymer science journals. This success is owed to the polymer community who have supported us by submitting and reviewing manuscripts, ensuring that we publish the highest quality papers. Thanks to the diligent work of our referees and Associate Editors, we are disseminating this exciting science as rapidly as possible.
