Google has just released its Google Scholar Metrics for 2015. The metrics include information on citations from articles indexed by Google Scholar from 2010 to 2014 and are designed to give authors an idea of the visibility and influence of articles published in a journal. For more information on the idea behind the metrics, check out the Google Scholar blog.
What does this mean for JPhysB? Well excitingly, the journal was ranked 6th in the top 20 publications for both Quantum Mechanics and Spectroscopy & Molecular Physics by h-index. H-index is broadly a measure of how well cited papers are (Google provides a good explanation here).
To celebrate, here are a few interesting recent papers covering Quantum Mechanics:
- Quantum optomechanical piston engines powered by heat
- Electromagnetically induced transparency and tunable fano resonances in hybrid optomechanics
- Optimization of the environment for generating entanglement and spin squeezing
and Spectroscopy & Molecular Physics:
- Spectroscopy of highly charged ions and its relevance to EUV and soft x-ray source development
- On the dynamics of photo-electrons in C60
- Triple differential cross sections for the ionization of the valence states of NH3 by electron impact
