In just one year, MedComm was successfully included in the ESCI database, and articles published online by the journal will be included in real-time by Web of Science, marking another milestone in the development of the journal.

The ESCI (Emerging Sources Citation Index) database is a high-quality journal index selected according to Thomson Reuters Journal Selection Criteria. It mainly includes outstanding academic journals with important influence in emerging research fields, and forms the core collection of Web of Science together with SCI, SSCI and AHCI. For all journals included in the ESCI database, their articles can be retrieved on the SCI website to facilitate the understanding of the latest scientific research and discoveries. Most of the journals included in ESCI are officially included as SCI journals in a short period of time, and joining ESCI has become an important ticket for journals to be selected by SCI.

MedComm is another excellent biomedical journal created by Professor Wei Yuquan, an academician of the Chinese Academy of Sciences. The Signal Transduction and Targeted Therapy (STTT), a first-class academic journal founded by Professor Wei Yuquanin 2016, had an impact factor of 18.187 in 2020. It is located in the Q1 area of the JCR section—a SCI journal, and ranks No. 5 in the global biochemistry and molecular biology journals and No.11 in cell biology journals. We have reason to believe that MedComm has unlimited potential and can be expected to become a high-level international journal in the future.
