SCI-E is one of the major citation databases (CDBs) in the world in the natural and applied scientific disciplines. For the year 2018, under the SCI-E, 9156 scientific journals are indexed, which are classified into 178 categories. Scientific journals in the field of "Materials Science" are classified in SCI-E into 10 (ten) categories.
The paper presents the status and analysis of scientific journals indexed within the SCI-E citation database (CDB) for 10 (ten) listed categories in the field of "Materials Science" for the period 1981-2018, as well as bibliometric and statistical analysis of those categories. The top-ranked category from all ten in "Materials Science", by number of journals, was the "Materials Science, Multidisciplinary" category with 293 scientific journals and a cumulative growth index (CGI) of 263.96% for the period 1997-2018. The largest increase in the number of scientific journals for the period 1981-2018 for all ten of the above categories in the field of "Materials Science" had the category "Nanoscience & Nanotechnology" with a cumulative growth index (CGI) of 348.15% for the period 2005-2018. The highest number of published articles (A) and total citations (TC) for 2018 had the category "Materials Science, Multidisciplinary", with 114027 published articles (A) and 4389013 total citations (TC). The highest bibliometric indicators for 2018 had the category "Nanoscience & Nanotechnology" with MedIF=2.843, AggIF=6.795 and AggII=1.500.
