RESTON, Va. - The Journal of Nuclear Medicine Technology (JNMT) has been selected by Clarivate Analytics for inclusion in its Emerging Sources Citation Index. This coverage begins with 2017.
"JNMT is the only peer-reviewed publication dedicated to nuclear medicine technology and has been supporting the technologist community for more than 40 years," JNMT Editor Kathy Thomas, MHA, CNMT, PET, FSNMTS, points out. "This recognition by Clarivate is an important first step in raising the profile and impact of the journal."
The Emerging Sources Citation Index (ESCI) covers all areas of the scholarly literature of the sciences, social sciences and arts and humanities. To be accepted for coverage in ESCI, a journal must be peer reviewed, follow ethical publishing practices, meet certain technical requirements, and be recommended or requested by a scholarly audience of Web of Science users. Journals in the ESCI are discoverable via the Web of Science with an identical indexing process to any other indexed journal, with full citation counts, author information, etc.
"This is really great news," says Norman E. Bolus, MSPH, CNMT, FSNMMI-TS, who, as past editor of JNMT, applied for coverage. "Indexing in the ESCI should improve JNMT's visibility, and it provides a mark of quality--both of which are good for authors."
SNMMI also publishes The Journal of Nuclear Medicine, which is listed in Clarivate's Science Citation Index Expanded (SCIE). JNMT's selection for the Emerging Sources Citation Index could possibly lead to future inclusion in SCIE.
