After a successful evaluation by the Scopus Content Selection & Advisory Board (CSAB), the Journal of Statistical Theory and Applications (JSTA) has been accepted for inclusion in Scopus. Scopus is the world's largest abstract and citation database of peer-reviewed scientific journals, books and conference proceedings which covers research topics across all scientific, technical and medical disciplines. The database currently contains more than 75 million records and over 1.4 billion cited references, while it also offers various smart tools and metrics to track, analyze and visualize research. The inclusion of JSTA in Scopus is expected to significantly enhance the journal's visibility and means that JSTA will receive its first metrics from the Scopus "basket of metrics", most notably a CiteScore, in June 2021.

The Journal of Statistical Theory and Applications (JSTA) has been included in Thomson Reuters' new citation index, the Emerging Sources Citation Index (ESCI). The ESCI is accessible through the Web of Science, as one of the databases that forms the Web of Science Core Collection, and is stated to include "peer-reviewed publications of regional importance and in emerging scientific fields". As a result of this inclusion, JSTA will also be automatically evaluated on an ongoing basis for inclusion in the Science Citation Index Expanded (SCIE), a step which would eventually lead to the journal getting an impact factor.
