PM World has announced that the PM World Journal (PMWJ) will soon be added to some of EBSCOs business databases and indexed for use by libraries and researchers worldwide.  The license agreement was signed on 18 May 2013. 

According to David Pells, Managing Editor, This is an important milestone for our publication.  With the PMWJ indexed and available to researchers and students through libraries, our journal, articles and authors will all become much more visible and accessible.  This is an important step for any serious professional publication.

EBSCO databases are available in public, institutional, college and university libraries.  Once included in their database system, EBSCO provides abstracts, indexing, bibliographic data, live-links to publishers, linked cited references and a consistent interface with library users.  PMWJ contents will be added to the EBSCOhost databases in coming months.

EBSCOs Senior Vice President of Product Management, Dave Mangione says PM World Journal will be a great addition to the growing number of prestigious journals covered in our EBSCO products.  Those already familiar with PM World Journal content, will now benefit from searching the content within an aggregated database experience on EBSCOhost which includes value add features such as industry leading article-level A&I,  personalization and links to publishers website all of which enhance the search experience for our customers and provide participating publishers with more exposure to their content.

This validates both the quality of our contents as well as our publication process, Pells added.  With EBSCO databases receiving over 300 million searches each month, this should provide us with much greater visibility and more readers.  This will also greatly benefit our authors.
