5 High-Impact Articles in Sustainability Transitions & Sustainable Engineering

This week we have the pleasure of announcing that Elementa: Science of the Anthropocene has been accepted into the Science Citation Index Expanded and is expected to get an Impact Factor in June 2018, as confirmed by Clarivate Analytics. We thought his news would be of interest to attendees of the AGU Fall Meeting, and we invite those at #AGU17 to visit Elementa at booth #1820, where the journal is featured alongside DataONE and DataCite.

We are pleased that we can soon add an Impact Factor to the many ways we measure Elementa‘s impact. Today, as part of Elementa‘s #AGU17 blog series, we present high-impact content—as measured by views, downloads, Scopus citations, and Altmetric scores—from our Sustainability Transitions and Sustainable Engineering domains.
