Articles not indexed by Web of Science

Beginning of September 30, 2019, Web of Science has started to index Online First articles published in Springer and Palgrave journals. This new policy is applicable for online First articles published from October 1, 2019.

If an article has been published as an Online First article prior to September 30, 2019 and not yet been assigned to a volume and issue of the journal, then it will not generally have been indexed by indexing services such as Web of Science (WoS).


The Online First article published before September 30, 2019 will be indexed once it is assigned to an issue and has a complete bibliographic citation including the volume, issue and page numbers.

Please generally allow up to six weeks upon publication, before your article becomes available on WoS.

If your eligible article has not been indexed on Web of Science within this time frame, please contact Clarivate directly, using their Data change & missing article form.
