The American Geophysical Union’s (AGU) open access journal Earth’s Future has been accepted for future indexing in Thomson-Reuter’s Web of Science. Earth’s Future is a transdisciplinary journal that explores global change and sustainability.
More than 65 articles, including research articles, reviews, and commentaries, have been published in Earth’s Future since its first issue in December 2013. Earth’s Future articles have reached a broad global audience, with more than 112,000 views and more than 86,000 full article downloads. Individual articles are already included in Web of Science, Google Scholar, and other trackers.
Although the official impact factor won’t be available until 3 years after publication of the first article, Earth’s Future articles have already received high citations and strong Altmetric scores. Altmetric analyzes the online activity around scholarly literature, including tracking news articles, blogs, Twitter, Facebook, and Google+. Several articles have received double-digit citations in fewer than 2 years, and the top article has gotten more than 50 citations.
Earth’s Future articles have a mean Altmetric score of 28.2, greatly exceeding the global average score of 4.9. Some Earth’s Future articles are in the 99th percentile, and many more are in the 95th percentile, of the nearly 3.8 million articles tracked by Altmetric. The combination of impact factor and Altmetric score represents a more complete estimate of the professional and public impacts of scientific articles, with Earth’s Future among the leaders.
