APSIPA is an emerging
association to promote broad spectrum of research and
education activities in signal and information processing.
The interest of APSIPA encompasses but not limited signal
and information processing, recognition, classification,
communication, networking, computing, system design
and implementation, security, and technology with applications
to scientific, engineering, health, and social areas.
has now been accepted for inclusion in the Emerging
Sources Citation Index (ESCI). This is a new database
in the Web of Science Core Collection from Thomson Reuters.
ESCI complements other Thomson Reuters indexes by providing
earlier visibility for sources under evaluation as part
of the Science Citation Index (SCI). We are still awaiting
an answer on our initial application made to the SCI
and we will try to obtain an answer from Thomson Reuters
as soon as possible. Just to be clear, inclusion in
the ESCI does not mean that the journal is included
in the Journal Citation Reports (JCR) - the database
that leads to a journal being given an impact factor.
What it does mean, however, is that the journal is now
more discoverable, which will hopefully lead to more
citations, thus strengthening our case for inclusion
in the SCI and JCR. ATSIP papers published from 2016
onwards will now be included in the ESCI.
