Essential Science Indicators

Alternative Titles
InCites ESI
Description

Essential Science Indicators is a unique compilation of performance statistics and trends extrapolated from counts of articles published in scholarly journals and the citations to those articles.

Article counts for Essential Science IndicatorsTM are derived from 11,855 journals indexed in Web of Science Core Collection (Science Citation Index Expanded and Social Sciences Citation Index only) over a 10-year period.Citation counts for these articles are derived from journals indexed in Web of Science Core Collection (Science Citation Index Expanded, Social Sciences Citation Index and Arts & Humanities Citation Index)

Each journal is assigned to one of 22 research fields. In ESI, a journal can be assigned to only one field.  Journals such as Science and Nature are categorized as multidisciplinary since they publish research in many different fields. As a result, papers published in these multidisciplinary journals are assigned to a field based on the representation of the cited journals. For example, if the majority of cited references in the paper are to neuroscience journals, the paper is then categorized as neuroscience.

Papers are defined as regular scientific articles and review articles . Letters to the editor, corrections, and abstracts are excluded.

The years shown in ESI reports are publication years, unless otherwise indicated. ESI indicators are calculated from 10 full years of data.

ESI is updated six times a year. The most recent update may add documents published in the previous year, in which case metrics based on the previous publication year may be adjusted.

The Journal of Electronic Publishing

Alternative Titles
JEP
Description

The Journal of Electronic Publishing (JEP) is a forum for research and discussion about contemporary publishing practices, and the impact of those practices upon users. Our contributors and readers are publishers, scholars, librarians, journalists, students, technologists, attorneys, and others with an interest in the methods and means of contemporary publishing. At its inception in January 1995, JEP carved out an important niche by recognizing that print communication was in the throes of significant change, and that digital communication would become an important—and in some cases predominant—means for transmitting published information.

JEP aspires to document changes in publishing, and in some cases to stimulate and shape the direction of those changes. The articles present innovative ideas, best practices, and leading-edge thinking about all aspects of publishing, authorship, and readership. The editor and publisher are committed to presenting wide-ranging and diverse viewpoints on contemporary publishing practices, and to encouraging dialogue and understanding between key decision-makers in publishing and those who are affected by the decisions being made.
