A journal published at the Budapest University of Technology and Economics has continued to be the first among periodicals with impact factor of Hungary.

Express Polymer Letters (EPL) has won the competition again of the 35 Hungarian journals with impact factor. The EPL was the first last year and this achievement is especially remarkable because the 8 other periodicals that follow it in the ranking are published by leading scientific publishing companies, like Kluwer-Akadémiai Kiadó or Springer.

Chemical Engineering, journal of the Faculty of Chemical Technology and Biotechnology is the 25th in the ranking (7 positions forward compared to last year), Civil Engineering, journal of the Faculty of Civil Engineering is the 28th, just like previously.

The new impact factors of the three journals of BME registered by the Web of Science:

1. Express Polymer Letters: 2.761 (previous year: 2.953)

2. Periodica Polytechnica Chemical Engineering: 0.296 (previous year: 0.130)

3. Periodica Polytechnica Civil Engineering: 0.261 (previous year: 0.250)

Scientific journals are measured by the number of citations (impact factor) to the articles published. Impact factors are calculated by Thomson Reuters (previously the Institute for Scientific Information, publisher of SCI); in any given year the impact factor of a journal is the average number of citations received per paper published in that journal during the two preceding years. The method invented by Eugene Garfield was first published in 1964 as Science Citation Index (SCI), while IF values were first published in 1975.

The database known as Web of Science (WoS) contains the information about the most frequently cited journals and also about the scientists referring to these journals. Today ISI follows over 9000 journals.
