After being indexed by international databases such as Scopus, EBSCO, and ProQuest since 2013, NTUMR has for the first time, being indexed by Emerging Sources Citation Index (ESCI) in 2018.
ESCI is a new index in the core collection of the Web of Science, a collection that contains more than 18,000 highly influential academic journals, 180,000 different conference papers, as well as a variety of research data from over 80,000 different academic works. The Web of Science core collection includes three major citation indexes which are, Science Citation Index Expanded (SCIE), Social Science Citation Index (SSCI), and Arts & Humanities Citation Index (AHCI). These citation indexes encompass the world’s top international, as well as local, journals. SSCI is a multidisciplinary index, established by International Scientific Indexing (ISI), focused around social science citations. It contains 3,200 different journals covering 55 different social science subjects as well as content selected from 3,500 of the world’s top journals. Being indexed by SSCI is a goal that NTUMR will continue to works towards.
The review standards of ESCI is incredibly strict. The journal has to be one that’s peer reviewed, has to follow publication ethics and technical specifications, has to provide information regarding English texts, and has to be recommended by at least one academic user of the Web of Science. Only after meeting these requirements will the journal be reviewed and possibly indexed. NTUMR being indexed by ESCI has greatly increased the chance of being indexed by SSCI.
NTUMR, which has continuously achieved excellence, is honored to be recognized by Emerging Sources Citation Index (ESCI), signaling a huge step forward towards globalization. NTUMR is able to achieve such honor and recognition because of the ceaseless efforts from our editorial team and staff, constantly raising the quality of the journal. In the future, we will continue to work towards our goal of being indexed by SSCI.
