The leading Population Data Science journal expands its growing credentials with its inclusion in Scopus

Swansea, Wales, September 2020 - The International Journal of Population Data Science (IJPDS) is proud to announce their inclusion in Scopus, ‘The largest abstract and citation database of peer-reviewed literature.’

In just 3 years since its launch, IJPDS has ensured its presence in some of the world’s leading scholastic indexes and directories, and has acquired an impressive list of credentials. Continuing this trend and to ensure ongoing high quality services for its authors, all articles published in IJPDS are now fully searchable and available via open access on Scopus. 

Founding Editor-in-Chief, Professor Kerina Jones remarked that, “Acceptance for indexing in Scopus is not only a positive acknowledgement of the journal’s record of exceptional standards of publishing, but also to the value of the newly emerged field of Population Data Science as a whole. We are delighted to be able to support our authors’ contributions with greater visibility of their work via Scopus, and to have the opportunity for IJPDS articles to reach a much wider audience of readers globally.”

Scopus is used by more than 5,000 academic, government and corporate institutions, including top ranking organizations. Scopus is designed to serve the research information needs of researchers, educators, administrators, students and librarians across the entire academic community.

IJPDS Deputy Editor, Professor Kim McGrail echoes Professor Jones’ sentiments and adds “We are really pleased that IJPDS has reached this significant milestone. Inclusion in Scopus will increase the reach of papers published in IJPDS, and will also help to attract new authors to our journal. Thank you to our whole population data science community for your support and for the excellent scholarship you’ve submitted to IJPDS.”
