BrewingScience receives quality label
Shortly before the end of 2017 we received great news: The scientific journal BrewingScience (the former „Monatsschrift für Brauwissenschaft“), published by Fachverlag Hans Carl, Nuremberg, has been selected for coverage in the Emerging Sources Citation Index (ESCI). ESCI is a new database within Clarivate Analytics, a Thomson Reuters spin-off which has been in charge of the journal selection process since 2016. Thus, BrewingScience has reached the preliminary stage to receiving the Thomson Reuters Impact Factor, which is highly sought after in the scientific community, and has been represented in the Web of Science since the first edition of 2017, when coverage begun.
ESCI is part of the Web of Science Core Collection (a multidisciplinary bibliographic database with worldwide coverage, but U.S. American orientation). It considers, among other things, scientifically high-quality publications of at least regional importance. Journals indexed in the ESCI have to fulfill the same strict standards for scientific publications as for the Impact Factor.
