I am not sure it is appropriate to contact you to inquire about the SCI index situation of AMI series journal (ACS Applied Bio Materials).
As the sister journals of AMI, Energy, Nano, Polymer, and Electronic have been SCIE indexed and acquired their IFs for quite a long time, but Bio is still ESCI indexed.
From the article citations in 2022, Bio is much better than Polymer and Electronic. I think Bio deserves its own IF just like its sister journals.
Whether ACS Applied Bio Materials can be SCIE indexed or not is an important problem associated with its future development and authors' self-interests.
ACS ABM is in its fifth year since its publication and authors are looking forward to its first IF.
I'm sorry to disturb you in your busy schedule.
Dear Dr. @@@
We are aware that ACS Applied Bio Materials is not indexed in SCIE. Regrettably, this is not under our control, since the indexing is done by Clarivate. We have been in touch with them regarding the issue.
Thank you for your concern and please understand that we are aware of the issue and hope it can be resolved by Clarivate.
