The ESCI is the Web of Science scientific journal database of Clarivate Analytics (inherited from Thomson Reuters, formerly Institute of Scientific Information, ISI - Institute for Scientific. Information) and has been in operation since 2015. Being on the ESCI list will increase the magazine’s popularity and provide a quality markup of the journal.

The lower tier is the emerging source citation index (ESCI). Citations from ESCI journals are of the same value as citations from SCIE journals.
