BELLINGHAM, Washington, and CARDIFF, UK — Neurophotonics, a journal published by not-for-profit publisher SPIE, the international society for optics and photonics, has been accepted for inclusion in Science Citation Index Expanded (SCIE), part of the Web of Science.

Neurophotonics, edited by David Boas of Massachusetts General Hospital, Harvard Medical School, will be indexed in SCIE with coverage beginning in Volume 1, Issue 1, announced SPIE Publications Director Eric Pepper. All content should be indexed by the end of 2016.

"I am very pleased that Neurophotonics will be included in the Science Citation Index Expanded, increasing the visibility of the journal," Boas said. "Inclusion in SCIE is the pathway to an impact factor for Neurophotonics, and this reflects the dedication of the editorial board and the SPIE publications team to maintaining high publishing standards."

The journal is already included in PubMed, PubMed Central, Scopus, and several other abstracting and indexing databases.

Neurophotonics launched in 2014 and is published digitally in the SPIE Digital Library as well as in print. The journal covers advances in optical technology applicable to the study of the brain and their impact on the basic and clinical neuroscience applications.

The SPIE Digital Library contains more than 458,000 articles from SPIE journals, proceedings, and books, with approximately 18,000 new research papers added each year. Abstracts are freely searchable, and a number of journal articles are published with open access.
