Clarivate Analytics Announces the Integration of SCI and SCIE to SCIE from 2020

No Actual Differences Between SCI and SCIE ... No More SCI Distinctions

When evaluating the research abilities of universities and researchers around the world, indicators such as 'the number of SCI-level papers' are commonly used. SCI stands for Science and Technology Citation Index, or 'a quotation index for science and technology papers.' In addition to this Science Citation Index (SCI), it includes SCIE (Science Citation Index Expanded), SSCI (Social Sciences Citation Index), A&HCI (Arts and Humanities Citation Index), and a databased called SCOPUS, provided by a publishing company Elsevier. Four of them, except SCOPUS, were built by the U.S-based Clarivate Analytics and are serviced through the Web of Science Core Collection.

However, until now, the master journalist provided on the Clarebate Analytics website has provided a menu to identify SCI and SCIE, but there has been confusion due to SCI and SCIE's classification, as SCI was included in SCIE and provided within the Web of Science Core Collection. Indeed, SCI and SCIE do not differ in the quality of the paper, but only in the difference that SCI is data provided on CD/DVD and SCIE is data provided online. To solve this problem, Clarebate Analytics said it has been working to set internal policies and add information and URLs for each journal since October 2019, and that it will provide SCI by integrating SCI into SCIE without officially using SCI classification as of January 3, 2020. In other words, all science and technology journals in the Web of Science Core Collection are classified as SCIE.
