ChERD was first introduced in 19232 and is a leading international journal for the publication of high quality, original papers in chemical engineering. Total citations for ChERD also grew by more than 16 per cent during the 12 month period.
Similar success was achieved by Process Safety and Environmental Protection (PSEP), which saw its Impact Factor more than treble from 0.597 in 2003 to 1.829 in 2013.
PSEP was launched in 1990 and is concerned with the safety of industrial processes and the protection of the environment.
Food and Bioproducts Processing (FBP) recorded the biggest ten year growth of 228 per cent and achieved the highest Impact Factor ever recorded for any
FBP was introduced in 1991 and seeks to advance chemical engineering in the fields of biotechnology, bioprocessing and food engineering.
"Chemical engineering matters and our profession has important contributions to make on issues like climate change, protecting the environment, saving water, improving safety, new health treatments, renewable energy, efficient food production and other work to help address the grand challenges.
"We are delighted that IChemE's Journals are supporting these important developments and allowing the talent and energy from the academic community to reach a growing audience attracted to our stable of high quality, peer-reviewed Journals."
