Maney Publishing is pleased to announce that three more humanities titles have been accepted into Thomson Reuters (ISI) Web of Knowledge. Industrial Archaeology Review and Journal of the British Archaeological Association are now included in the Arts and Humanities Citation Index and Current Contents Connect/Arts & Humanities.
Ambix: Journal of the Society for the History of Alchemy and Chemistry, which is already available through the humanities indices, has now been included in the Science Citation Index and its impact factor will shortly be made available.
Ambix Editor, Dr Peter Morris (Science Museum, London, UK) welcomed the news; “Citation data and impact factors are increasingly important criteria for authors of scholarly articles, and this move confirms the position of Ambix as a world-class publication platform for historians of alchemy and chemistry.”
Julian Luxford (University of St Andrews, Fife, UK), Editor of the Journal of the British Archaeological Association, commented: “I am delighted with this development, which will bring the Journal more completely into the domain of current research. In scholarly terms, it has been at the forefront of its field for over 150 years: its inclusion in ISI will ensure that it remains there.”
Criteria for inclusion are impact, influence, timeliness, peer review, and geographic representation.
Liz Rosindale, Humanities Publishing Manager at Maney, is delighted at the news: “The inclusion of Industrial Archaeology Review and Journal of the British Archaeological Association in ISI and the extension of the services covering Ambix is testament to the high editorial standards which ensure the journals are widely read and cited around the world.”
Following an extensive retrodigitisation project, the journals’ archives are available online to subscribers at www.ingentaconnect.com/content/maney, with selected content free to view.
Ambix, the journal of the Society for the History of Alchemy and Chemistry, which celebrated its 75th anniversary in 2010, is an internationally recognised, peer-reviewed journal publishing current research in all aspects of the history of alchemy and chemistry, including the chemical industry. Its scope has been broadened to cover the history of pharmacy and environmental studies of the chemical industry. The Editor also welcomes articles and shorter pieces about archives and other sources, and from time to time an issue will be devoted to a particular theme, based on a selection of papers presented at an international conference or invited. Ambix also publishes reviews of books dealing with any aspect of the history of alchemy and chemistry.
The British Archaeological Association was founded in 1843 to promote the study of archaeology, art and architecture and the preservation of our national antiquities. The Journal of the British Archaeological Association publishes new work on art and antiquities of Roman to post-medieval date, although the art, architecture and archaeology of the Middle Ages form the core of its interests. The
journal embraces a wide spectrum of antiquarian and art historical interests, with architectural history strongly represented.
Industrial Archaeology Review, the journal of the Association for Industrial Archaeology, aims to publish research in industrial archaeology, which is defined as a period study embracing the tangible evidence of social, economic and technological development in the period since industrialisation, generally from the early-18th century onwards. It is a peer-reviewed academic journal, with scholarly standards of presentation, yet seeks to encourage submissions from both amateurs and professionals which will inform all those working in the field of current developments.
