Alexandria, VA, USA, June 30, 2022 – The International Association for Dental Research (IADR) and American Association for Dental, Oral, and Craniofacial Research (AADOCR) announced that the JDR Clinical & Translational Research (JDR CTR) now appears on the Emerging Sources Citation Index (ESCI). It is currently ranked 35/158 in the “Dentistry, Oral Surgery & Medicine” category with a Journal Citation Indicator (JCI) of 1.10. The 158 journals in the category are inclusive of the 92 journals that receive Impact Factors. Just looking at those in the ESCI, JDR CTR is ranked 1/66 in the Journal Citation Indicator (JCI) for “Dentistry, Oral Surgery & Medicine – ESCI”.
The ESCI was launched in late 2015 by Thomson Reuters as a new database in Web of Science. Around 3,000 journals were selected for coverage at launch, spanning the full range of subject areas. Since 2017 the index has been produced by Clarivate Analytics. The ESCI aims to extend the scope of publications in the Web of Science to include high-quality, peer reviewed publications. It ensures important research is visible in the Web of Science Core Collection even if it is not yet internationally recognized.
Although journals indexed in the ESCI will not receive Impact Factors, citations from the ESCI will be included in the citation counts for Journal Citation Reports. As such, citations from the ESCI will contribute to the Impact Factors of other journals. Journals indexed in the ESCI will be discoverable on Web of Science with full citation counts, author information and other enrichment.
“The appearance of JDR CTR on the ESCI marks another important milestone in the journal’s history since its launch in 2016 and follows being accepted by MEDLINE in 2019,” said Editor-in-Chief Jocelyne Feine. “As winner of the 2018 PROSE Award for “Best New Journal in Biological and Life Sciences”, the JDR CTR is proving to be one of the top emerging scientific journals in oral health research.”
