Recently, High Power Laser Science and Engineering (HPL) was accepted for inclusion in Scopus, which is the largest abstract and citation database of peer-reviewed literature.
Since its launch in 2013, the Journal maintains a convincing editorial policy. With the advantages of on-time-publication and easy-access online, the Journal has attracted a large amount of excellent research concerning the areas of high power laser science and engineering, which have been well cited by other publications. All of these comprise the supporting reasons for the Journal's inclusion by the Scopus Content Selection & Advisory Board (CSAB).
Scopus released their CiteScore journal metric on Dec. 8, 2016, which is as an alternative to the popular Impact Factor. Considering this, we think the recent inclusion of the Journal in Scopus will enhance the impact of the Journal and attract more attention of the research community relevant to the areas the Journal concerns.
Before that, HPL has also been accepted for inclusion in the Emerging Sources Citation Index (ESCI), which is a new index in the Web of ScienceTM Core Collection, and complements the highly selective indexes by providing earlier visibility for sources under evaluation as part of SCIE, SSCI, and AHCI’s rigorous journal selection process.
