We have just found out that the Journal of Place Management and Development is now going to be indexed in Scopus.
Scopus is the largest citation database after Thomson Reuters (ISI) and the second most influential journal ranking and citation tool for scholars worldwide. It is particularly influential in Asia Pacific (Australia). Being indexed in Scopus means that the JPMD is most likely to be better ranked in regional journal ranking lists, better known and considered more often for submissions. A point particularly for UK authors, is that Scopus has been chosen as the sole bibliometric provider for the 2014 Research Excellence Framework (REF).
We thank Emerald, our publishers, for this achievement.
