Since 2011, the ASEAN Citation Index (ACI) has been established in Southeast Asia. The ACI system stores information on research results of works published in scientific journals of Southeast Asia countries that are selected by ACI. The ACI system has created a common database for Southeast Asian countries to quickly and favorably transmit information about their research results and citations in the region. The ACI system is also the basis for creating a bridge for journals to step by step approach and possibly join the list of prestigious Scopus and Web of Science in the world.
Components of ACI.
The overall process of reviewing scientific journals to be included in the list of ACI consists of 2 steps and must satisfy 11 criteria, each criterion is evaluated with a maximum of 2 points, so a maximum total is 22 points. In order to be recognized under the ACI system, scientific journals must be evaluated according to 11 criteria in step 2 and must have a minimum score of 17/22 points.
