Thomson Reuters indexes journals in their databases each year according to a strict set of standards*. Accordingly, Journal of Renewable and Sustainable Energy (JRSE) has been indexed in the following databases:
- Science Citation Index Expanded (Including the Web of Science)
- Current Contents—Engineering, Computing & Technology
The change includes all published content back to our first issue, which premiered in January 2009.
This means that JRSE now will be included in future Journal Citation Reports. Here at AIP, we are proud of the journal we've created and we know that this inclusion will expand our audience and increase the influence of this important journal.
In other exciting indexing news, AIP applied physics journals top the Thomson Reuters rankings again in 2009.
*From Thomson Reuters: Thomson Reuters' editors use a number of tools for assessing the scholarly merit of a journal being evaluated for coverage. Among the criteria they have established are timeliness of publication, adherence to international editorial conventions, and the use of peer review and English language bibliographic information. They also examine the journal's editorial content and the international diversity of its authors and editors.
