Excerpt: This editorial discusses the indexing systems that include the Journal of Chiropractic Education, reflects on the increased international participation in chiropractic education scholarly meetings and peer review, and acknowledges the editorial board and peer reviewers for the journal.
This has been a productive year for the Journal of Chiropractic Education (JCE). The journal was notified that it is now included in the Emerging Sources Citation Index (ESCI) of Thomson Reuters. ESCI is part of the core collection of Thomson Reuters' prestigious Web of Science, an online search engine for scholarly works. ESCI indexes high-quality, peer-reviewed publications of regional importance in emerging scientific fields. With its inclusion in ESCI, the JCE will continue to be evaluated for impact factor. The JCE is also in the final stages of review for inclusion in Scopus, Elsevier's indexing system that provides additional citation metrics. We anticipate hearing from Scopus by the end of the year and hope to have positive news to share in the next issue of the JCE. To summarize, the JCE is now indexed by PubMed, Thomson Reuters' Emerging Sources Citation Index, the Index to Chiropractic Literature, the Cumulative Index to Nursing and Allied Health Literature, the Allied and Complementary Medicine Database, and MANTIS, and it is included in the Directory of Open Access Journals as well as ReadCube.
