Journal of Gender-Based Violence accepted into the Emerging Sources Citation Index (ESCI)

6 April 2020

The Journal of Gender-Based Violence (JGBV), run by the Centre for Gender and Violence Research has been accepted into the Emerging Sources Citation Index (ESCI).

The ESCI is an index in the Web of Science Core Collection. It complements the highly selective Social Sciences Citation Index (SSCI) by providing earlier visibility for emerging sources. Inclusion in the ESCI will provide greater discoverability and measurable citations in Web of Science, and is a fantastic step on the way to inclusion in the SSCI and achieving an impact factor.

Congratulations to the editorial team that has worked hard to get JGBV to reach this important milestone!

Editor-in-Chief, Professor Marianne Hester, said ‘we are very pleased that the JGBV has been accepted into the Emerging Sources Citation Index, and thank all our fantastic contributors from across the world who make the JGBV such an exciting read.’

About the Journal:

The Journal of Gender-Based Violence (JGBV), is the first international journal based in Europe to show case the work of scholars across disciplinary and topic boundaries, and from a range of methodologies.

The journal acknowledges both the breadth of gender-based violence (GBV) and its links to gendered inequalities. It aims to continue to document the voices and experiences of victims and survivors of GBV, to publish work regarding those who perpetrate GBV and of the varied and complex social structures, inequalities and gender norms through which GBV is produced and sustained. The journal recognises the intersection of gender with other identities and power relations, such as ethnicity, nationality, sexuality, faith, disability and economic status.

The Journal of Gender-Based Violence is published by Policy Press on behalf of the Centre for Gender and Violence Research.
