Web of Science Publisher Portal

The Web of Science™ Publisher Portal is now open to all publishers, improving the journal submission process.

The Portal allows publishers to securely log in and submit journals for inclusion in the Web of Science Core Collection™ and provides a way to view the status of all submitted journals.

Information for publishers who wish to request access to the Web of Science™ Publisher Portal is available here.

Please note:

  • Only journal publishers will be granted access to the Publisher Portal and therefore only journal publishers can submit evaluation requests. By registering for a Publisher Portal account, you are confirming you are authorized to submit journals to the Web of Science for evaluation on behalf of the publisher of the journal.
  • We currently are unable to receive hardcopy for new Web of Science journal evaluations in order to support our move to a digital workplace and to minimize the environmental impact on our global operations. More information on this initiative will be shared in due course.
  • For journals covered in ESCI, it is no longer necessary to submit re-evaluation requests. Impact re-evaluations for journals currently indexed in ESCI will be conducted based on internal monitoring and not in response to requests submitted by publishers.

Please refer to our selection criteria to learn more about our editorial processes. We encourage you to read our FAQs and watch the video below to learn more about the Web of Science Publisher Portal and the information you will need in order to complete an evaluation request.

Web of Science Open House Sessions

The Web of Science Open House Sessions are a series of webinars where the Web of Science Editorial Team provides an inside view of the journal evaluation process and selection criteria, a robust process that makes the Web of Science Core Collection™ the world’s most trusted publisher-independent global citation database.
