Latest Articles From ASPiH UK’s BMJ Simulation & Technology Enhanced Learning Journal
BMJ Simulation & Technology Enhanced Learning focuses on the use of simulation and innovative technology as an educational method or intervention for professionals in all areas of health and social care education, workforce development and quality of care. The journal seeks to contribute to research, innovation and knowledge translation for practitioners, teachers, students and leaders in all health and social care professions who wish to improve clinical outcomes, patient experience, and safety. BMJ STEL is published in partnership with ASPiH aka The Association for Simulated Practice in Healthcare. The Editor-in-Chief is Professor Nick Sevdalis from King’s College London\.
Even more good news, the BMJ STEL has just been accepted into the Emerging Sources Citation Index. ESCI is a new database from Clarivate Analytics (formerly Thomson Reuters) that journals have to be accepted by before consideration by the full Science Citation Index-Expanded. This is the vital first step on the way to getting an impact factor and means that citations to the journal will now be tracked in Web of Science. It is reasonable to expect that the first Income Factor to be generated could be within 1-2 years. Inclusion in the ESCI is a great endorsement of the journal and recognition of the hard work of the editor, Nick Sevdalis and the editorial team in maintaining and increasing the quality of the content.
