About ESCI:

ESCI was introduced by Thomson Reuters in late 2015 as a new database in Web of Science. At its launch, it included approximately 3,000 periodicals spanning a wide range of subjects. Since 2017, the index has been produced by Clarivate Analytics. The Emerging Sources Citation Index aims to extend the scope of publications within the Web of Science to include high-quality, peer-reviewed publications. To qualify for coverage, journals must meet the following criteria:

  • Peer-reviewed

  • Adheres to ethical publishing practices

  • Meets technical requirements

ESCI enhances the visibility of significant research within the Web of Science Core Collection. Therefore, inclusion in ESCI not only elevates the visibility of a journal but also serves as a hallmark of its quality, offering substantial benefits to authors.
