EFORT and Bone & Joint Publishing are delighted to announce that EFORT Open Reviews has been accepted in the Emerging Sources Citation Index (ESCI), which is part of the Web of Science core collection.

All papers published in EFORT Open Reviews (EOR) from the beginning of 2017 onward are now discoverable in Web of Science. The ESCI is described as containing “high-quality, peer-reviewed publications of regional importance and in emerging research fields by key opinion leaders, funders and evaluators worldwide,” and the inclusion of EOR in it will significantly increase the discoverability of the journal among the international orthopaedic community. Journals in the ESCI have their citations monitored with a view to selected titles then migrating to the Science Citation Index, and hence obtaining an impact factor.
