Oñati Socio-legal Series is now included in the Emerging Sources Citation Index (Web of Science)


Beginning with issue 7(1) and onwards, our journal will be indexed and abstracted in the ESCI. The ESCI is part of the Web of Science Core Collection, and it was launched in 2015 to include high-quality, peer reviewed publications. It ensures important research is visible in the Web of Science Core Collection.

As of 2018, the Core Collection included more than 12,700 top-tier international and regional journals in over 250 disciplines. The Web of Science Core Collection is, nowadays, unarguably one of the top indexing tools for scientific journals and books, as well as a seal of quality by itself. Journals that are part of ESCI are carefully evaluated by independent experts. Citations from the ESCI are included in the citation counts for Journal Citation Reports, so they contribute to the Impact Factors of other journals.

As part of the ESCI, OSLS is now discoverable on Web of Science with full citation counts, author information and other enrichment. These articles will be included in an author's h-index calculation, and they will also be in analysis conducted on other Clarivate products such as InCites.

Being in the ESCI will improve OSLS's visibility and provides a mark of quality, with the benefits that this brings to authors. As part of the ESCI, Oñati Socio-legal Series will be eligible for inclusion in the SSCI (Social Sciences Citation Index).

Having been selected for indexation in the ESCI is a great accomplishment for the Institute, and we wish to thank all of the authors, guest editors, and reviewers who have helped us fulfill this goal.
