Journal of Yeungnam Medical Science (JYMS) is now indexed in the Emerging Sources Citation Index (ESCI)! I am very happy to share this great news with the editorial board members, reviewers, and readers. The editorial office received an email from Clarivate Analytics on September 20, 2023, informing us that JYMS has been officially included in the ESCI, one of six editions of the Web of Science Core Collection (WoSCC). The coverage of JYMS begins with the journal contents published in JYMS, Volume 39(1), 2022.
The WoSCC is an indexing database by Clarivate Analytics that provides citation indexes of peer-reviewed academic literature. The database is composed of the Science Citation Index-Expanded (SCIE), Social Sciences Citation Index (SSCI), Arts and Humanities Citation Index (AHCI), Conference Proceedings Citation Index, Book Citation Index, and ESCI. The ESCI, launched in 2015, intends to broaden the scope of Web of Science publications to include high-quality, peer-reviewed publications, ensuring that significant research is included in the WoSCC if it is not yet internationally acknowledged. Twenty-eight criteria comprise the Web of Science review process, including four impact criteria to determine the most important journals in each category based on citation activity and 24 quality criteria for editorial rigor and best practices at the journal level. An ESCI-covered journal that meets the impact criteria will be indexed in the SCIE. Accordingly, if the citation index of JYMS increases steadily and meets an impact criterion of approximately three, JYMS will be accepted into SCIE.
JYMS was listed on Scopus in March 2023 and is now listed on both Scopus and ESCI, two important citation indexing databases. JYMS’s milestones from its inception, which greatly contributed to its inclusion in ESCI, were presented in JYMS, Volume 40(2), 2023 [1,2]. The JYMS editorial office would like to express our sincere gratitude to the editors, authors, and reviewers of JYMS for their contributions to the journal’s success [3]. We look forward to working with you to advance JYMS to the next level of greatness in the future.
