The journal 2D Materials has just received its first impact factor (IF), with an amazing value of 6.9. Such a high IF for the first journal dedicated solely to 2D materials is a testament to the high level of activity in this field of research.
2D Materials is published by the UK-based Institute of Physics (IOP), a scientific charity that works to advance physics education, research, and application. The charity's journal branch, IOP Publishing, works on promoting physics by publishing more than 70 scientific journals that span all branches of physics. Among all the journals, 2D Materials is now the best rated according to impact factor. This great result sets graphene and other 2D materials research where it belongs – at the top of physics research.
