Advances in Respiratory Medicine has been recently approved for Emerging Sources Citation Index (ESCI)
The advantages of indexing in ESCI for ARM are obvious. ARM is now achievable from Web of Science Core Collection platform database, so full citation counts and authors’ information may be obtained easily. Our visibility will significantly increase. Consequently, our authors will also
gain a lot. In fact the benefits are mutual, as citations from ARM will now be included in the citation counts for the Journal Citation Reports, contributing also to the Impact Factors of other journals.
However, we still have a lot of work to do. The most important task is to further increase the inflow of good quality articles, especially original research papers, which have a citation potential. I would like to warmly welcome our Readers and Authors to send their work to ARM.
Strong, truly international Editorial Scientific Board is vitally important for the journal success. Therefore it is a great pleasure to welcome Professor Martina Vašáková from Thomayer Hospital, Prague. Professor Vašáková is an internationally recognized specialist in interstitial lung diseases, funder and leader of EMPIRE IPF Registry.
