Human Kinetics is pleased to announce that the International Journal of Sports Physiology and Performance (IJSPP) has been accepted for indexing in Web of Science, the largest and most comprehensive citation index available. Web of Science, a Thomson Reuters product, has distinguished itself from other research databases through the quality and depth of content it offers to researchers, authors, publishers, and institutions. The inclusion of IJSPP in Web of Science further demonstrates the Human Kinetics goal of providing the community with the most relevant and influential sports physiology and performance content.

"I’m extremely pleased that the IJSPP has been included in the the Web of Science," says IJSPP editor Carl Foster, Ph.D., FACSM. "It’s evidence of the maturing of IJSPP toward becoming the major journal in the sports science community, which was the vision of Professor David Pyne when he began the journal, and is the continuing vision of myself and the editorial team of Professors Thompson, Mujika, and Impellizzeri."

Web of Science is the world’s leading citation index with multidisciplinary content from nearly 12,000 of the top-tier international and regional journals. Of the 2,500+ journals reviewed by the Thomson Reuters editorial staff annually, only about 10-12% of the most influential in the fields of science, social sciences, and arts and humanities are selected for inclusion.

Journals like IJSPP that are indexed in Web of Science have been evaluated by the Thomson Reuters editorial development staff and have met their high standards for coverage. The journal’s publishing standards, its editorial content, and citation data from Web of Science are just a few of the factors considered during the evaluation and selection process.

The coverage of the International Journal of Sports Physiology and Performance in Web of Science will begin with IJSPP Volume 1, Issue 1 (2006) and will be indexed and abstracted in the Science Citation Index (also known as SciSearch) and the 2010 Journal Citation Report: Science Edition, being published in June 2011.
