The American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) has announced that the first journal in its Science Partner Journal (SPJ) program, Research, is now indexed in Web of Science: Science Citation Index Expanded (SCIE). The journal is expected to receive its first Journal Impact Factor in the June 2022 release of the Journal Citation Reports.
The journal was previously included in the Emerging Sources Citation Index (ESCI) and after 3 years of publishing high-quality content, it will move into SCIE. This is a significant milestone for the journal, which is published in association with the Science and Technology Review Publishing House, under the leadership of the China Association for Science and Technology (CAST). The inclusion of Research in SCIE highlights the journal’s commitment to publishing high-quality and high-impact Open Access content. In addition to SCIE, Research is also indexed in CAS, CNKI, CSCD, DOAJ, Ei Compendex, Inspec, PMC and Scopus.
Research was launched in 2018, publishing its first content in August of that year. The journal publishes original multidisciplinary work reflecting innovative discoveries and important issues in the life and physical sciences and in engineering and applied science. Papers published since its launch have covered tunable/reconfigurable metasurfaces, wearable/implantable electronics, COVID-19 meta-analysis, and face masks perspectives. As a continuation of AAAS' commitment to open access publishing, the journal’s content is published under a Creative Commons Attribution License (CC BY), on a continuous basis.Click here to read the original press release.
