ESCI launched in November 2015 is a new edition of Web of Science being created by Thomson Reuters and includes influential journals covering a variety of disciplines. ESCI complements the highly selective indexes by providing earlier visibility for sources under evaluation as part of SCIE, SSCI, and AHCI’s rigorous journal selection process. Inclusion in ESCI provides greater discoverability which leads to measurable citations and more transparency in the selection process.
