JeDEM Update: Scopus, Cross-Ref and DOIs – and what it all means

jedem logoJeDEM has been continuously keeping its course with publishing high quality papers while being free of charge for authors (no processing charges or APCs for submisson and publication are applied). But the Open Access journal also continues to strive for excellence in today’s highly competitive publishing landscape, where visibility of articles and indexing are big criteria for authors when they are choosing a journal.

Thus, we are pleased to inform you of some important updates for JeDEM!

What is new?

  1. JeDEM was accepted for inclusion in Scopus, the world’s largest abstract and citation database of peer-reviewed literature
  2. We will also be available as Crossref citation data (on behalf of the Initiative for OpenCitations)
  3. Articles on JeDEM are now identifiable via DOIs (Digital Object Identifyer System)

1. JeDEM has been evaluated for inclusion in the Scopus database by the Content Selection & Advisory Board. The review is now complete and JeDEM will be included in Scopus, provided a successful content covering agreement within the next months. JeDEM has been evaluated as journal that consistently includes articles that are scientifically sound and relevant to an international academic or professional audience in the field, addressing an important niche audience.

2. Crossref citation data is made available on behalf of the Initiative for OpenCitations, a collaboration between scholarly publishers, researchers, and other interested parties to promote the unrestricted availability of scholarly citation data. JeDEM is listed with Crossref since January 2018.

3. For those who have not noticed yet: Among the features and qualities of JeDEM is also the DOI (Digital Object Identifier System). Regular readers of JeDEM might have noticed that DOIs are now visible under all articles – which is great for quoting them! You find the respective URL under the link to the full text, when clicking on the article’s headline. And did you know that the first part of this mysterious number identifies the assigning body, while the second one refers to the publisher? And that this always stays the same? (This is called the principle of persistence).

JeDEM publishes two issues per year. And did you know that we do not only publish research papers, but also reflections (like literature reviews) and project descriptions? Submit your papers here.

The journal accepts ongoing submissions as well as submissions to a special issue call.

If you have any questions, the managing editors are happy to answer them.
