Abstracting and Indexing

To be recognized as an authoritative, high-quality source of information, a journal must be widely available. Indexing and abstracting services facilitate the broadest dissemination of information by pointing researchers to articles that are relevant to the field. As a result, within a short span of time our journals have been included in some major indexing databases or journal evaluation services and the number is increasing every month. We strongly encourage authors to take more informed decision before submission of any manuscript.

Abstracting and Indexing (A&I) services provide one location for researchers in libraries to search for articles in a subject. They present abstracts of articles and link through to the publishers' websites for the full text of the article. Journals should be included in the major A&I indexes for their subjects to provide wider reach to researchers and more points of access to the articles hence driving up readership and citations.
