IEEE Access Accepted into Thomson Reuters Science Citation Index Expanded
29 February 2016 – IEEE Access, an award-winning, open-access multidisciplinary journal published by IEEE, the world’s largest professional organization advancing technology for humanity, has been accepted into the Thomson Reuters Science Citation Index Expanded. Starting with Volume 1 of 2013, IEEE Access will now be included with more than 6,500 notable journals, in the Web of Science, Journal Citation Report, and Current Contents Engineering, Computing and Technology edition.
Inclusion in Thomson Reuters Science Citation Index Expanded will allow researchers to accurately track citations of IEEE Access articles in later research and to measure their impact.
IEEE Access is also expected to receive its first Impact Factor rating in September of 2016. This will provide a snapshot of how frequently IEEE Access articles are cited in other journals during a particular year.
The 2016 Impact Factor will cover volumes from 2013, 2014, and 2015.
IEEE Access employs a rapid, binary peer-review process with a typical submission to publication time of just four to six weeks and offers articles that are of high interest to readers—original, technically correct, and clearly presented. The scope of this all-electronic, archival publication comprises all IEEE fields of interest, emphasizing applications-oriented and interdisciplinary articles.
IEEE Access received the 2015 PROSE Award for “Best New Journal in STM” (science, technology, and medicine) and one of its articles was awarded the 2015 Donald G. Fink Prized Paper Award. IEEE Access articles are also very popular; for the past six months, four or five IEEE Access articles are included in the IEEE Xplore® most-popular-articles list based on monthly download statistics.
