Global publisher Wiley-Blackwell, which is part of John Wiley & Sons, Inc., today announced that a significant number of new journals from its Asia-Pacific list have been included in the Thomson ISI® Web of Science – representing a substantial increase in coverage of Wiley-Blackwell’s Asia-Pacific journals.

An additional 31 journals have been indexed and are due to receive their first Impact Factor by 2009/ 2010 – including 13 journals from the publisher’s Social Sciences and Humanities list. Wiley-Blackwell has now achieved complete coverage by ISI for its regional publishing programmes in its two key subject areas of geography and economics.

Journals in Wiley-Blackwell’s new starts program - those publishing their fourth volume and younger - accepted into the ISI listing include Asia-Pacific Journal of Clinical Oncology, China & World Economy, and Management and Organization Review.

Wiley-Blackwell also announced that six of its Asia Pacific journals have received Impact Factors for the first time in the Thomson ISI® 2007 Journal Citation Reports – taking the total number of Wiley-Blackwell Asia-Pacific JCR listed titles to 50.

The journals from Wiley-Blackwell’s Asia-Pacific list that had the greatest improvement in their ranking were The Developing Economies and Singapore Journal of Tropical Geography from the Social Sciences & Humanities category, and the Australian and New Zealand Journal of Public Health from the Professional list. The Australian Journal of Grape and Wine Research remains in the top 20% in its category and is the highest ranked viticulture journal worldwide.

“Wiley-Blackwell’s strategic journal development program is a competitive advantage, which is clearly evident in the acceptance of a large number of our very young journals getting coverage in ISI”, said Mark Robertson, Publishing Director, Wiley-Blackwell Asia Pacific.

Wiley-Blackwell’s medical journals showed an 8.5% average increase in Asia Pacific, with highlights including a 51% increase in Impact Factor to 1.892 for Hepatology Research, and a 23.7% jump for Pathology International to 1.371.

“The results of this report reflect not only our commitment to working with our editors, societies and authors to help make important contributions to advances in knowledge in the fields in which we publish, but also our dedication to enabling the widest access to current issues.” said Eric A. Swanson, Senior Vice President, Wiley-Blackwell.

Mark Robertson added, “We are thrilled at this year’s results – adding value and being a part of each journal’s success story is what drives us to innovate constantly, and to stay on the top of our game. Our ability to deliver high quality publishing services to our partners is at the heart of our success.”
