Special Issue in Applied Sciences: Celebrating Applied Sciences Reaches 20,000 Articles Milestone: Invited Papers in Acoustics and Vibrations Section
Applied Sciences is going to reach a remarkable milestone by publishing its 10th volume, and in celebration of this special occasion, we have taken the initiative to launch a Special Issue from the Acoustics and Vibrations section called "10th Anniversary of Applied Sciences: Invited Papers in Acoustics Field". The issue will publish invited high-quality original research and review articles related to all aspects and applications of acoustics and elastic waves, as well as vibrations both in their active and passive form.
Since 2014, when Applied Sciences received its first impact factor, the review quality significantly improved; hence, in 2018, 2703 manuscripts were published from 9757 submissions, with an acceptance rate below 28%. This gave the journal an impact factor jump from 1.484 in 2014 to 2.217 in 2018. We have also reduced the manuscript turnaround time; presently, the median publication time is only 37 days, which will be further reduced in the coming months, and we hope to increase the impact factor above 3.0 by the end of 2019. Among all sections of Applied Sciences, the Acoustics and Vibrations section strongly contributes to this success; 655 articles have been published so far, along with 68 Special Issues (data as of 3 December 2019). On this occasion, we would like to thank our all Editorial Board Members, Managing Editors, Reviewers, and Authors for their great contributions and continued support. Please join the celebration of our 10th anniversary and submit your (review) article to the Anniversary Edition.
