In 2015 WoS introduced a new index in its Web of Science collection. The Emerging Sources Citation Index (ESCI) draws attention to scientific journals that are not yet included in WoS or the Social Sciences Citation Index (SSCI), but which appear well placed for selection. ESCI indexes quality scientific journals with peer review processes and provides citation information for articles from said publications.
Here at Digithum it is cause for much celebration to have been included in this index. We entered the Scopus database twelve months ago and now, becoming part of ESCI, we are progressing well on the course we set for our journal, aiming to mark its position as a leading figure in relational analysis in social sciences and humanities.
