US Wiley posts strong performance in 2017 Journal Citation Reports - 17 Jul 2017

Wiley's performance in the 2017 release of Clarivate Analytics' Journal Citation Reports (JCR) remains strong, maintaining its position as #3 in terms of the number of titles indexed, articles published and citations received. Overall, 1,214 Wiley journals were included in the reports (+9 from last year), of which 57% were society publications – strengthening Wiley's position as the world's leading society publishing partner.

Wiley journals were ranked #1 in 26 subject categories, and achieved 363 top-10 category rankings. Particular success stories include the continued high performance of CA-A Cancer Journal for Clinicians (retaining its #1 spot across the entire JCR with an Impact Factor of 187.04), and the successful separation of the American Geophysical Union's Journal of Geophysical Research, which appeared for the first time under each of its constitutive titles, ranking highly across 7 distinct subject categories.

In Physical Sciences, the journals Advanced Electronic Materials (4.193), Energy Science & Engineering (2.172), ChemNanoChem (2.937) received their first impact factor.

Wiley journals continued to lead within their subject categories with Computer-Aided Civil and Infrastructure Engineering ranking as the top journal in two categories (Construction & Building Technology; Transportation Science & Technology). International Journal of Energy Research retained its #1 ranking in the Nuclear Science & Technology category, Mass Spectrometry Reviews remained #1 in Spectroscopy, and WIREs Computational Molecular Science is the #1 journal in Mathematical and Computational Biology for the third straight year.

The impact factor of Advanced Science (open access) also increased dramatically, with a change of 50.6% to 9.034.

In Life Sciences, 7 titles ranked #1 in their fields. Land Degradation and Development (ranked #1 in Soil Science), Wildlife Monographs (ranked #1 in Zoology), Fish and Fisheries (#1 in Fisheries) and Global Change Biology (#1 in Biodiversity Conservation) all retained the #1 ranking from last year.

Within Earth Science, The American Geophysical Union (AGU) continues to have highly cited journals that rank in the top of their subject areas, including Water Resources Research and Reviews of Geophysics and Paleoceanography. Additionally this year, for the first time, separate impact factors have been calculated by Clarivate for each Journal of Geophysical Research title.

In Health Sciences five journals are ranked #1 in their category: Addiction, CA: A Cancer Journal for Clinicians, Head & Neck, Ultrasound in Obstetrics & Gynecology and World Psychiatry, with CA: A Cancer Journal for Clinicians ranked #1 journal in the JCR overall. 215 (67%) Wiley Health Sciences titles listed in the 2016 JCR saw an increase in impact factor and 65 titles appear in the top 10 of their category. Annals of Clinical and Translational Neurology, an open access journal, received its first impact factor.

In Social Sciences and Humanities, five journals are ranked #1 in their category including The Economic History Review, The Journal of Finance, Perspectives on Sexual and Reproductive Health, American Journal of Political Science, and Criminology, which moved into the top spot in the Criminology and Penology subject category. Of the 352+ Social and Behavioural Sciences and Humanities titles listed in the 2016 JCR, three additional titles now appear in the top 10 in their category, for a total of 70 titles holding a top 10 spot.

Bulgaria Biodiversity data journal Check List joins Pensoft's open access portfolio - 17 Jul 2017

Scholarly publisher Pensoft has announced journal Check List as the latest biodiversity-themed title to join its peer-reviewed and open access family. Its first issue in collaboration with Pensoft is now published on the journal's new website.

Check List is an online open access journal launched in 2005 in Brazil. It publishes distribution summaries, annotated lists of species and notes on the geographic distribution of all taxa. The journal stands for the idea that maintaining records of the range of a species is the very first step towards undertaking effective actions for its conservation. Furthermore, its team believes that publishing such data provides the baseline for biodiversity preservation as a whole.

The move sees Check List migrating to the Pensoft-developed journal publishing platform ARPHA (Authoring, Reviewing, Publishing, Hosting and Archiving) to provide its authors, editors and users with a brand new look and feel along with a whole set of high-tech perks.

While the all-new sleek interface is evident at first visit of the Check List's new website, there is much more under the surface. The partnership with Pensoft and ARPHA means that the journal will enjoy fast-track and convenient publishing. The manuscripts will be taken care for from the authoring stage, through reviewing and dissemination - all the way to archiving. The papers will be published in three formats (PDF, XML, HTML) and full of semantic enhancements.

Recognising the importance of easy and efficient publication of accessible data in the spirit of both biodiversity conservation and open science, ARPHA allows for data to be published as supplementary files along with the article, or through internationally recognised repositories, such as GBIF, Genbank, Barcode of Life, Dryad, and others.

Check List is the second scholarly journal of South American origin to join Pensoft's growing portfolio, after another highly regarded Brazilian-born academic title - Zoologia - moved to ARPHA earlier this year.
