Impact Score* 3.5
The aim of the journal is to expand the discussion of research in Crystallography, Mineralogy, Geochemistry, Analytical chemistry and Crystal structure. Issues in Crystallography were discussed, taking into consideration concepts from other disciplines like X-ray crystallography and Diffraction. It focuses on Mineralogy but the discussions also offer insight into other areas such as Quartz, Mineral and Silicate.
Geochemistry research is concerned with Metamorphic rock in particular. The Analytical chemistry study tackling the subject of Infrared spectroscopy is the focus of it.
The most cited articles tackle a plethora of topics, such as Mineralogy, Analytical chemistry, Crystallography, Geochemistry and Thermodynamics. In addition to Mineralogy research, the most cited papers aim to explore topics under Quartz, Plagioclase, Mineral and Silicate. The works on Analytical chemistry tackled in the published articles bring together disciplines like Inorganic chemistry, Spectral line and Spectroscopy.
The foci of the journal are Geochemistry, Crystallography, Analytical chemistry, Chemical engineering and Mineral. While work presented in it provided substantial information on Geochemistry, it also covered topics in Bearing (mechanical), Hydrothermal circulation and Mineralization (soil science). Research on Crystallography presented in it focuses, in particular, on Crystal chemistry and Crystal structure.
Raman spectroscopy is a major topic of Analytical chemistry research presented in American Mineralogist. The majority of Chemical engineering studies are focused on the issues of Silicate.
A key indicator for each journal is its effectiveness in reaching other researchers with the papers published at that venue.
The chart below presents the interquartile range (first quartile 25%, median 50% and third quartile 75%) of the number of citations of articles over time.
The top authors publishing in American Mineralogist (based on the number of publications) are:
The overall trend for top authors publishing in this journal is outlined below. The chart shows the number of publications at each edition of the journal for top authors.
Only papers with recognized affiliations are considered
The top affiliations publishing in American Mineralogist (based on the number of publications) are:
The overall trend for top affiliations publishing in this journal is outlined below. The chart shows the number of publications at each edition of the journal for top affiliations.
The publication chance index shows the ratio of articles published by the best research institutions in the journal edition to all articles published within that journal. The best research institutions were selected based on the largest number of articles published during all editions of the journal.
The chart below presents the percentage ratio of articles from top institutions (based on their ranking of total papers).Top affiliations were grouped by their rank into the following tiers: top 1-10, top 11-20, top 21-50, and top 51+. Only articles with a recognized affiliation are considered.
During the most recent 2021 edition, 7.41% of publications had an unrecognized affiliation. Out of the publications with recognized affiliations, 15.33% were posted by at least one author from the top 10 institutions publishing in the journal. Another 18.67% included authors affiliated with research institutions from the top 11-20 affiliations. Institutions from the 21-50 range included 16.00% of all publications and 50.00% were from other institutions.
A very common phenomenon observed among researchers publishing scientific articles is the intentional selection of journals they have already attended in the past. In particular, it is worth analyzing the case when the authors participate in the same journal from year to year.
The Returning Authors Index presented below illustrates the ratio of authors who participated in both a given as well as the previous edition of the journal in relation to all participants in a given year.
The graph below shows the Returning Institution Index, illustrating the ratio of institutions that participated in both a given and the previous edition of the conference in relation to all affiliations present in a given year.
Our experience to innovation index was created to show a cross-section of the experience level of authors publishing in a journal. The index includes the authors publishing at the last edition of a journal, grouped by total number of publications throughout their academic career (P) and the total number of citations of these publications ever received (C).
The group intervals were selected empirically to best show the diversity of the authors' experiences, their labels were selected as a convenience, not as judgment. The authors were divided into the following groups:
The chart below illustrates experience levels of first authors in cases of publications with multiple authors.
