The Editors and the publisher of SICOT-J are delighted to announce two important indexations of the journal: acceptance into PubMed Central and DOAJ (Directory of Open Access Journals).

SICOT-J has been added to the list of journals indexed by DOAJ, the service that lists open access journals committed to quality and peer reviewed open access content. Inclusion of a journal in DOAJ is a mandatory criterion for many funders, when researchers apply for a budget to finance “article processing charges”.

In addition, SICOT-J has been accepted for inclusion of its content by PubMed Central. This indexation will be effective as soon as the technical set-up is completed in the very near future, thereby leading to the indexation of all published articles since its launch in January 2015, as well as all forthcoming content.

The Board of the journal and EDP Sciences are very proud of the recognition of the exacting ethical and publishing standards applied by SICOT-J since the first published article. By this recognition, the Editors see encouragement to pursue their editorial policy and are also expecting that this will result in an increase of new article submissions.

SICOT-J would like to thank its Editorial Board, reviewers, and authors for their support to reach this important milestone.
