Open access publisher Hindawi has announced that the Journal of Tropical Medicine has been accepted into the Science Citation Index Expanded (SCIE), the multidisciplinary index of top tier journals run by Clarivate Analytics. Inclusion in SCIE means that the journal will reach a wider audience and will receive its very first Impact Factor in the 2020 Journal Citation Report.
In order to be included in SCIE, the journal had to meet a number of stringent requirements, including quality of publications, citation impact, having a respected international Editorial Board and following rigorous ethical publishing standards. While meeting these high standards, the Journal of Tropical Medicine continues to be dedicated to advancing Open Science.
It is expected that following this new development, the journal will further grow and publish research addressing the control and prevention of tropical diseases around the globe. To this end, the journal will continue to collaborate with authors, reviewers and editors involved in tropical medicine research to ensure the journal covers all diseases within this category. With inclusion in SCIE boosting the visibility of the journal, and through the Open Science mission, the journal can reach more and more readers without facing any barriers to the research, helping to make a global impact on tropical diseases.
