Elsevier releases 2018 CiteScoreTM values
- 04 Jun 2019

Elsevier, the information analytics business specializing in science and health, has released the 2018 CiteScore values, its latest assessment of thousands of all peer-reviewed research journals, book series, conference proceedings and trade publications covered in Scopus. These new values are available for free.

This year more than 23,830 titles source titles covering 330 disciplines were ranked across eight indicators, which are all part of CiteScore metrics. These include: CiteScore, CiteScore Tracker, CiteScore Percentile, CiteScore Quartiles, CiteScore Rank, Citation Count, Document Count, and Percentage Cited. Calculating values for all titles included in Scopus, CiteScore covers over 12,000 more titles than the Impact Factor.

Access to CiteScore metrics' underlying data is free for everyone, including non-Scopus subscribers, so values can be recalculated offering transparency to researchers, publishers and the wider academic community. New this year is that calculations can be broken down by document type, enabling user-defined alternative CiteScore calculations including only certain document types.

CiteScore metrics are part of a collection of research metrics available on or through Scopus. Other metrics include journal, author, institutional, and article-level metrics captured in PlumX Metrics (covering Usage, Captures, Mentions, Social Media and Citations), supporting a holistic view of research performance.

With CiteScore Tracker journal performance can be monitored throughout the year, alongside the release of the annual score. For a complete overview of 2018 CiteScore values - and all other research metrics available in Scopus - interested parties may visit: CiteScore 2018 metrics.

IET's open access partner journal, High Voltage, accepted for Science Citation Index Expanded
- 17 Apr 2019

The Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) has announced that its first open access partner journal, High Voltage, has been accepted for Clarivate Analytics' Science Citation Index Expanded, (SCIE).

High Voltage was launched in 2016 in partnership with the China Electric Power Research Institute, (CEPRI) and supported by Tsinghua University, as the inaugural journal of the IET Open programme. Covering the topics of high-voltage power engineering and applications, including experimental, computational and theoretical studies, High Voltage was first acknowledged for impact in its field with its inclusion in Clarivate Analytics; Emerging Sources, Citation Index (ESCI).

High Voltage is available on the IET's Digital Library and IEEE Xplore with four issues per year. The journal covers the fields of electrical insulation, discharge and plasmas, pulsed power, high-field effects and high voltage engineering, which have promising applications across energy transmission, environmental protection, biomedicine and material treatment.

EDP Sciences articles classified as 'highly cited' in Essential Science Indicators
- 05 Apr 2019

Two articles from the EDP Sciences journals EPJ Applied Physics and Mechanics&Industry have been recognised as highly cited papers on Web of Science using data from Essential Science IndicatorsSM. Only the top 1% of articles achieve this status.

Essential Science IndicatorsSM, hosted on the InCites platform, collates data on highly cited papers and shares it with Web of Science from Clarivate Analytics. These papers sit within the top 1% of each of ESI's 22 subject areas and are defined as "…this highly cited paper received enough citations to place it in the top 1% of its academic field based on a highly cited threshold for the field and publication year."

'Recent advances in the understanding of homogeneous dielectric barrier discharges' (Massines et al., 2009), published in EPJ Applied Physics, discusses the physics of homogeneous dielectric barrier discharges at atmospheric pressure along with the mechanisms controlling homogeneity during gas breakdown and discharge development.

'The Onera elsA CFD software: input from research and feedback from industry' (Cambier et al., 2013), published in Mechanics&Industry. This paper presents recent accomplishments regarding Onera elsA CFD software, from research and industry for a wide range of aerospace applications.

International Journal of Optics accepted into the Science Citation Index Expanded
- 15 Jan 2019

Hindawi has announced that the International Journal of Optics has been accepted into the Science Citation Index Expanded (SCIE), an index of more than 8,500 notable and significant journals from Clarivate Analytics' Web of Science. The addition of the journal to SCIE means that published work will now be more discoverable to a wider audience, as well as providing extra recognition for the authors, editors, and reviewers. It also means that the journal will receive its first Impact Factor when Clarivate Analytics release their 2018 Journal Citation Report later this year.

Prior to acceptance into this key indexing database, the journal underwent a rigorous evaluation process. Researchers who have written and reviewed for the journal have contributed hugely to its success. Indeed, there have been numerous interesting papers published in the International Journal of Optics over the past two years. These include a review article written by Prof. Garmire of Dartmouth College discussing the history and applications of stimulated brillouin, a research article authored by Dr Mahnke et al. reporting the creation of solitons in amplifying fibers, as well as a research article written by Dr Zulkipli et al. discussing how Unmanned Aerial Vehicles can be used to provide accurate data for road design. This final article was included in a Special Issue on optical 3D imaging technology, guest edited by Prof Xiaowei Li of Sichuan University.

Hindawi plans to continue building on this success in the coming year through a range of new projects and initiatives - by continuing to collaborate with their valued editors, authors, reviewers, and readers; by improving the all round journal experience from submission, through review, upto publication and reading; and by striving for ever greater openness and excellence in everything they do.

MDPI's Plants and Foods accepted for inclusion in SCIE
- 29 Nov 2018

Academic open-access publisher Multidisciplinary Digital Publishing Institute (MDPI) has announced that two of its journals, Plants and Foods, have been accepted for inclusion in the Science Citation Index Expanded (SCIE) in the Web of Science Core Collection, as well as Current Contents - Agriculture, Biology&Environmental Sciences. Meanwhile, Plants continues to be listed in BIOSIS Previews.

Both journals were established in 2012 and have since made an impact in the scientific community. For example, research published in Plants has been cited more than 880 times in Scopus in 2017 and 2018 to date. Out of four hundred research articles published in Foods since inception, 33 have been cited at least ten times.

Foods and Plants are due to receive first Journal Impact Factors based on Web of Science data in next year's release of the Journal Citation Reports in mid-2019.
