Inclusion in ESCI provides greater discoverability which leads to measurable citations and more transparency in the selection process.
Rapidly changing research fields and the rise of interdisciplinary scholarship calls for libraries to provide coverage of relevant titles in evolving disciplines. ESCI provides Web of Science Core Collection users with expanded options to discover relevant scholarly content. Get real-time insight into a journal’s citation performance while the content is considered for inclusion in other Web of Science collections.
