New faces at BrewingScience board
BrewingScience announces personnel changes in its editorial board. The panel serves as a source of inspiration for the further development of the journal BrewingScience, provides support in the search for suitable authors and advises on the selection of the winner of the Ludwig Narzi Award for Brewing Science. So far, it consisted of nine renowned experts from the field of brewing science or related disciplines.
BrewingScience is pleased to welcome two other world-renowned and proven experts to the editorial board: Prof. Charles W. Bamforth, UC Davies, California, USA, and Prof. Guido Aerts, KU Leuven, Campus Ghent, Belgium. With their many years of experience, the world-renowned brewing scientists contribute to the board's high level of expertise and also set an example in terms of internationalization.
The committee receives additional support by Dr. Christina Schnberger, Joh. Barth & Sohn, Nuremberg, Germany. The internationally renowned brewery engineer specializes in hops and is going to advise BrewingScience in this area - for example at the upcoming Hop Special, for which the call for papers is already out (see also box below).

BrewingScience receives quality label
Shortly before the end of 2017 we received great news: The scientific journal BrewingScience (the former Monatsschrift fr 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.
