Greenleaf Publishing journal Business, Peace and Sustainable Development (BPSD) has been selected to appear in a new edition of Thomson Reuters Web of Science research platform, which launches in November this year.
The Emerging Sources Citation Index (ESCI) will extend coverage of content featured in the Web of Science database to include high-quality, peer-reviewed publications of regional importance and in emerging scientific fields. Fully searchable and citable, inclusion in the ESCI will increase the visibility and reach of articles published in the journal.
Launched in 2013 and published in association with the Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME), a UN initiative, BPSD aims to understand the role of the business sector in enhancing peace, reducing violence and contributing to sustainable development. The journal also seeks to understand the importance of peace to markets and the economy.
While some research has been published previously on business and peace, and peace through commerce, BPSD is the first journal dedicated to the mutual contribution of business and peace. More information is available at www.greenleaf-publishing.com/bpsd.
Publishing Director Rebecca Marsh said: “We are delighted that Business, Peace and Sustainable Development has been positively evaluated for inclusion in the new ESCI. Authors’ work will now be more discoverable than ever before. We are proud to be at the forefront of this burgeoning and important discipline and the journal’s inclusion in ESCI is testament to the great work of the authors, the Editor and the Greenleaf Publishing team.”
Earlier this year more than 40 Greenleaf books, including Rinaldi and Testa’s The Responsible Fashion Company and Grayson, McLaren and Spitzeck’s Social Intrapreneurism and All That Jazz, were accepted in Thomson Reuters Book Citation Index (BkCI). The full list of included titles can be seen here.
Business, Peace and Sustainable Development is also available in Greenleaf Publishing and GSE Research’s Greenleaf Online Library (GOL) and Sustainable Organization Library (SOL) eCollections, which provide instant access to leading thinkers, pioneering research and examples of best practice in the fields of sustainability, corporate social responsibility, business ethics, corporate governance and environmental management.
