Publishing research results is an integral part of a researcher’s professional life. Dissemination of research result is just as important as the research activity itself. This will ensure the use of research results is maximized. The number and quality of the publications is an important, possibly the most important factor deciding the career of a scientist or researcher.
Indexing will help any journal to achieve its main purpose of being accessible to a wide audience. Indexation of a journal is considered a reflection of its quality. Indexed journals are considered to be of higher scientific quality as compared to non-indexed journals.
Scopus is a multidisciplinary indexing and abstracting database, covering citations from journals, the Web, patent databases and other sources in the sciences, social sciences and the arts & humanities publications. Scopus claims to be ‘the largest abstract and citation database of peer-reviewed literature and quality web sources’. It is owned by Elsevier and is available online by subscription.
Being indexed in Scopus is a major attainment for journals worldwide and achieving this success brings with it not only a measure of satisfaction but also assurance of the quality of any journal to other members of the scientific community.
