International Archives of Otorhinolaryngology is now Indexed in Emerging Sources Citation Index of Web of Science
Geraldo Pereira Jotz, Aline Gomez Bittencourt, Adilson Marcos Montefusco
We are pleased to announce that the International Archives of Otorhinolaryngology (IAO) is now indexed in the Emerging Sources Citation Index (ESCI) of the Web of Science (WoS) Core Collection. ESCI is a multidisciplinary citation index that includes peer-reviewed journals that follow ethical publishing practices and meet the WoS' stringent technical requirements.[1] [2]

Inclusion in ESCI is an important milestone for the IAO. It enables authors and readers to follow and track the number of citations received by the WoS in real time ([Figs. 1]-[2]). In addition, articles indexed by the ESCI are included in the author's h-index calculation and are also analyzed by InCites WoS.[3] [4] With this indexing, the IAO is now monitored by Clarivate Analytics (formerly Thomson Reuters), which uses citation activities to select journals that will receive an official Impact Factor (2).

On November 28, 2019, using the WoS, we found that from 2015 to 2020, the IAO had 382 indexed documents, with an average of 2.07 citations per article ([Fig. 2] and [Table 1]). Compared with the average number of citations received ( [Table 1] ), a significant increase in the citations received for review articles is evident. This demonstrates, as in other studies, that reviews receive a higher citation average than other document types.[5] [6] Thus, we can now emphasize the importance of the Award-Winning Research - IAO, to stimulate the submission of new review articles.[7]

Updating the data published by Bento (2017), we would like to highlight the global reach of our publication.[8] The IAO has published articles submitted by authors from 40 countries ([Fig. 3]). With this widespread distribution and the steady increase in manuscript submissions, we are proud to announce the arrival of new Section Editors. IAO now has 7 highly qualified editors ([Table 2]).

While celebrating our inclusion in these indices, we would like to take the opportunity to specifically recognize the "Top 10" articles. These articles were selected based on their impact on the WoS citations ([Table 3]). We would like to thank all of the Authors who have submitted their work for publication. To all of the Editorial Board and Reviewers, who have always been so attentive to the reviews and have provided relevant feedback, thank you very much for your valuable contributions. And to You the Reader, thank you for choosing our journal as a valuable source of research and information.

No conflict of interest has been declared by the author(s).
