AJCS selected for the Thomson Reuters Emerging Sources Citation Index!
We are delighted to announce that the American Journal of Cultural Sociology will now be indexed in Thomson Reuters’ Web of Science Core Collection, in the new Emerging Sources Citation Index (ESCI)!
Starting with issue 4.1 (February 2016), AJCS will be included in a new index, ESCI, which launched in 2015.
This index extends the publications discoverable in Thomson Reuters’ Web of Science Core Collection to include high-quality, peer-reviewed publications in emerging scientific fields and of regional importance. The Thomson Reuters Web of Science is one of the most trustworthy sources for citation counts, and AJCS’s inclusion in the ESCI provides greater discoverability for the journal and allows for real-time insight into the citation performance.
AJCS is already indexed by SCOPUS, a database listing journals and country scientific indicators and rankings. Inclusion into Web of Science within our first four years of publishing is a huge milestone!

American Journal of Cultural Sociology accepted into Scopus
We are delighted to announce that AJCS has been accepted into Elsevier's international indexing database, Scopus. The reviewers of the title commented, “this is an outstanding journal with a great team of editors and an internationally prominent editorial board, top-notch authors, interesting papers, and a citation record that older, more established journals must envy”. We are very proud indeed of this journal, as it has only just completed its second volume and is therefore very young to be included. Our warmest congratulations and thanks to everyone involved, but particularly our team of editors.
