International Journal of Metalcasting’s Influence Grows Again

The International Journal of Metalcasting, AFS’ technical and research journal, has seen its worldwide influence grow for a second consecutive year.

IJMC’s Impact Factor, a widely-used metric which reflects the number of times a journal is cited by researchers, grew 33% from 2018 to 2019. This follows a 25% jump from 2017 to 2018. Impact Factors are calculated for all academic journals listed in Journal Citation Reports.

“The Impact Factor is a direct measure of the quality and importance of our journal’s papers, made possible by the continued support by our IJMC reviewers, editorial board, Springer and AFS staff to make it the best global resource for metalcasting technical information,” said IJMC Editor-in-Chief Tom Prucha. "This is reflected in the fact that the IJMC is the highest-ranked journal dedicated to serving our metalcasting industry."

IJMC is a peer-reviewed quarterly journal that leads the way in the transfer of research and technology for the global metalcasting industry. It is the official research journal of the World Foundry Organization. Now in its 14th year, IJMC is published by AFS in partnership with Springer Nature Publications.
