I’m pleased to say that the FME Transactions journal has been accepted for indexing in ESCI (Emerging Sources Citation Index).
This means that the journal will now be discoverable via the Web of Science database, alongside any other Web of Science indexed journals. From the Web of Science database, we are now able to see full citation counts, author information and other enrichment on the journal. Articles in ESCI indexed journals will be included in an author’s H-Index calculation.
Being ESCI listed is the first step to obtaining an Impact Factor. We will be able to analyse the data provided by Web of Science to give a more detailed understanding of the journal’s citation performance, and apply for an Impact Factor listing as soon as we are confident that citations are at a level high enough to be accepted by the Science Citation Index (SCI).
ESCI listing should act as a significant incentive for submitting authors, and so please share the news with your networks!
