ESNBU accepted for coverage in the ESCI! More precisely, beginning with 2017, ESNBU will be indexed and abstracted in Emerging Sources Citation Index, the new edition in the Web of Science Core Collection. For our authors this means that articles will be included in an author’s H-Index, and also any analysis on Web of Science data or related products such as InCites. After publishing three consecutives issues, while undergoing the more in-depth editorial review, we will be allowed to move on and apply for evaluation in one of the three flagship Citation Indexes, namely, the Science Citation Index Expanded (SCIE), the Social Sciences Citation Index (SSCI) or the Arts & Humanities Citation Index (AHCI). Indexing in the ESCI provides a mark of quality. And we promise to maintain our high standards in academic publishing! We thank you, all our editors, reviewers, and authors for being on this journey with us so far! Share proudly with your colleagues that you have been part of it!✍

Other issues to consider:
- approaches to teaching translation and localization
- approaches to interpreter training
