As part of its commitment to transforming scientific publishing in all its facets, SciPost is proud to join and support the Initiative for Open Citations (I4OC), which is a collaboration between scholarly publishers, researchers, and other interested parties to promote the unrestricted availability of scholarly citation data.
The idea is simple but powerful: through Crossref, citation metadata of participating publishers is made publicly available, and its reuse authorized. This opens the door to the development of a new generation of metrics engines and metadata aggregators with the potential to modernize the way impact evaluation is performed.
We are delighted to announce that SciPost Physics has been accepted for coverage in the Emerging Sources Citation Index (ESCI), part of the Core Collection of the Web of Science.
Clarivate Analytics, who now manage WoS, have informed us that the Journal's content will appear in the database later this year. Coverage will begin with journal content published in 2017, with back issues to be covered later on.
This important development demonstrates that SciPost is quickly establishing itself as the publisher-of-choice for top science in this day and age of publishing reform.
We are delighted to announce that the Directory of Open Access Journals has awarded SciPost Physics the DOAJ Seal, which is a mark of certification for open access journals that achieve a high level of openness, adhere to Best Practice and high publishing standards.
This Seal certifies that SciPost Physics complies with a number of conditions including:
As an additional service, SciPost also takes care of linking all funding information provided by authors to the funders registered in the FundRef registry (with metadata deposited through Crossmark), enabling funders to easily assess where and by whom their funds are being put to efficient use.
The Seal provides recognition that SciPost Physics meets and even surpasses the standards applied in many commonly-used journals. Do your habitual publication venues live up to such high expectations? If not, consider switching to SciPost!
