The Journal of Energy in Southern Africa (JESA), published by UCT's Energy Research Centre (ERC) in the Faculty of Engineering and the Built Environment, has been selected for inclusion in the internationally recognised Science Citation Index Expanded.

Published by Thomson Reuters and edited by Richard Drummond, senior researcher at the centre, the weekly publication indexes articles and citations from over 5 300 international scientific journals.

This recognition is expected to attract more authors to the JESA, leading to the publication of even stronger material.

The JESA is a unique quarterly publication on activities in energy on the African continent. It covers matters of local and regional interest, as opposed to the international high technology content of other journals serving energy interests. It is used by government departments, academics, researchers, consulting engineers, energy producers, energy consumers and decision makers. The potential distribution impact is the whole of sub-Saharan Africa.

Now 18 years old, JESA is accredited by the Department of Education, and indexed in Environment Abstract, Index to South African Periodicals, and the Nexus Database System.
