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.
