Following a period of re-evaluation by Scopus, it has been confirmed that E3S Web of Conferences meets the content selection standards of Scopus. E3S Web of Conferences will therefore continue to be indexed in Scopus and any content that was paused during the re-evaluation period will be added to Scopus by the end of the year.
Indexations are often a key consideration for conference organisers when choosing where to publish their proceedings. The Web of Conferences team has therefore been fully focussed on the re-evaluation process. We are satisfied by the outcome which clarifies the status of E3S Web of Conferences and reflects the good quality science reported in the journal and its professional management. We will continue to be highly selective and expect partners to follow our rules and procedures which help to maintain high standards and ethical practices.
“We welcome this confirmation of continued indexation from Scopus and I am sure the clarity will be appreciated by current and potential partners,” commented Solange Guéhot, Publishing Editor, EDP Sciences. “We pride ourselves on doing the best possible job for our partners and thank everyone who kindly made representations on behalf of E3S.”
E3S Web of Conferences publishes open access proceedings relating to the environment, energy and earth sciences. In 2021, it was awarded the DOAJ Seal for “best practice in open access publishing”. When conferences publish with E3S Web of Conferences, all documents are indexed in the main bibliographic databases (subject to acceptance). As well as Scopus, these include the Conference Proceedings Citation Index (Web of Science), DOAJ, Ei Compendex, IET Inspec and many more.
