Frontiers of Medicine Accepted For Indexing By Thomson Reuters

We are pleased to announce that Frontiers of Medicine co-published by Higher Education Press and Springer has been accepted for indexing in several Thomson Reuters databases. This will increase the visibility and discoverability of all the articles published since 2013.

Beginning with V.7 (1) 2013, Frontiers of Medicine is now indexed and abstracted in:

♦ Science Citation Index Expanded (also known as SciSearch®)

♦ Journal Citation Reports/Science Edition

Research literature from China listed in MEDLINE 

13238
The two Springer journals Frontiers of Medicine and Protein & Cell were added to MEDLINE, the world’s most important literature database for medical and biomedical articles, in January. The two journals are co-published by Springer and its Chinese publishing partner Higher Education Press. Both journals are part of the Chinese Library of Science, a collection of more than 90 Springer journals.
Frontiers in Medicine has a broad scope in basic and clinical research. In addition to medicine, the range of topics covers epidemiology, traditional Chinese medicine, translational research, health policies, healthcare, and public health in China. The journal describes state-of-the-art Chinese diagnostic and therapeutic techniques in medicine.
Protein & Cell publishes original research articles, reviews, and commentaries concerning the latest developments in multidisciplinary areas in biology and biomedicine, with an emphasis on protein and cell research. The journal presents research highlights and news covering research policies and funding trends in China.
Both publications have been managed and organized by an international editorial board since they started publication. The members of the editorial board are renowned researchers and experts in the field of medicine and the life sciences, thus guaranteeing the highest academic standards of the articles and supporting effective manuscript review processes. Springer uses various alert services, such as table of contents (ToC) e-mail alerts, informing interested readers about the contents of the forthcoming issue, and press releases to ensure that the journals are widely promoted. This results in very high levels of visibility for the journals and increased downloads for each article. The publication of Online First papers, which appear long before the printed version, ensures that the journal articles can be accessed through the SpringerLink platform as quickly as possible.
Springer has offered Chinese research literature in English since 2006, working with other prestigious Chinese publishers, learned societies and the Chinese Academy of Sciences. It now publishes more than 90 academic journals in its Chinese Library of Science, available through www.springerlink.com.
Founded in 1954, Higher Education Press (Group), or HEP, is a comprehensive education and text-book publisher in China, providing a wide range of educational resources and services for higher education, vocational education, adult education, and further education. HEP is the leading publisher of course materials for higher education and vocational education markets in China.
Springer is a leading global scientific publisher of books and journals, delivering quality content through innovative information products and services. It publishes close to 500 academic and professional society journals. Springer is part of the publishing group Springer Science+Business Media. In the science, technology and medicine (STM) sector, the group publishes around 2,000 journals and more than 6,500 new books a year, as well as the largest STM eBook Collection worldwide.
