Globalizations Added to Thomson Reuters Social Science Index

Globalizations has been accepted into the Thomson Reuters (formerly ISI) Social Science Index and in June 2011 will receive its first Impact Factor report in the 2010 Journal Citation Reports. Indexing the journal and establishing its Impact Factor means that it is now ranked with other scholarly journals based upon the number of times articles published in Globalizations are being cited by other scholars in their own published work.

Globalizations publishes work which explores new meanings of globalization, brings fresh ideas to the concept, broadens its scope and contributes to shaping debates of the future. Dr. Mark Amen of the Patel Center serves as the journal’s deputy editor, and Dr. Rebecca Harris, Assistant Academic Director of the Patel Center, edits the journal’s book reviews.
