Chemical engineering professor edits journal to successful status
Under the guidance of Keith Hohn, the online journal, Catalysts, has been added to the Science Citation Index Expanded and Scopus, the largest abstract and citation database of peer-reviewed literature. Hohn, founding editor-in-chief of the publication, is a professor of chemical engineering at Kansas State University.
Catalysts will receive its first impact factor in 2015, which has been estimated at 1.756. The impact factor is a calculation of the impact a given journal has on a specific academic community — a recognized measure that people are reading the journal.
