Impact Score* 4.9
The foci of the journal are Plasticity, Composite material, Mechanics, Constitutive equation and Structural engineering. International Journal of Plasticity facilitates discussions on Plasticity that incorporate concepts from other fields like Hardening (metallurgy), Stress (mechanics), Finite element method, Dislocation and Anisotropy. Topics in Hardening (metallurgy) were tackled in line with various other fields like Softening and Strain hardening exponent.
While the journal focused on Dislocation, it was also able to explore topics like Grain boundary and Nucleation. Most of the works presented in the journal deals with Composite material but it intersects with the subject of Metallurgy. Research in Yield surface and the interrelating topic of Yield (engineering) were among the subjects of interest in the Mechanics studies discussed in the journal.
In it, Mathematical analysis, Finite strain theory and Classical mechanics are investigated in conjunction with one another to address concerns in Constitutive equation research. The Slip (materials science) works featured in the journal incorporate elements from Deformation mechanism, Crystal twinning and Single crystal. Flow stress is a key component of Strain rate research discussed in it.
The published articles primarily focus on research topics in Plasticity, Composite material, Constitutive equation, Mechanics and Structural engineering. The studies on Plasticity discussed at the most cited publications can also contribute to research in the domains of Hardening (metallurgy), Finite element method, Deformation (engineering), Strain hardening exponent and Slip (materials science). The most cited articles tackle studies in Finite strain theory and the interrelated subject of Classical mechanics to gain insights into Constitutive equation.
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 International Journal of Plasticity (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 International Journal of Plasticity (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 2022 edition, 0.00% of publications had an unrecognized affiliation. Out of the publications with recognized affiliations, 0.00% were posted by at least one author from the top 10 institutions publishing in the journal. Another 0.00% included authors affiliated with research institutions from the top 11-20 affiliations. Institutions from the 21-50 range included 0.00% of all publications and 100.00% 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.
