Science Editing was launched three and a half years ago with a vision to provide a medium for all people involved in scientific editing and publishing to express their ideas and opinions and to report their research results on related subjects. By doing so, we aimed to contribute to the development of academic journals in Korea and also in Asia. During the last four years, approximately 100 articles were published on a variety of topics. Many of them were interesting and provided unique perspectives on scientific publishing.

Starting from this year, Science Editing is indexed in the ESCI (Emerging Sources Citation Index), which is a new database launched in 2015 and managed by Clarivate Analytics. I believe this selection is an important first step for Science Editing to grow as an influential international journal, which is our ultimate goal. Science Editing is also listed in the DOAJ (Directory of Open Access Journals) since 2016. We consider these inclusions highly encouraging and will continue to make efforts to have Science Editing get indexed in other important databases.

The editorial board of Science Editing is consisted of many eminent experts in the field of editing and publishing from many different countries. Our board members will try hard to develop the journal as a unique one with many interesting and insightful articles. I strongly encourage editors, publishers, authors and reviewers all over the world to contribute their valuable manuscripts to Science Editing.
