Importance of
research visibility
Explanation of the
role of indexation
in enhancing
research visibility
I. Introduction
• "In the competitive
landscape of
academia, the visibility
of your research is
crucial. It not only
reflects the impact of
your work but also
contributes to the
advancement of your
career."
I. Introduction
• "Our primary goal today is
to understand the tools and
strategies that can
significantly enhance your
research visibility. We'll
delve into the world of
Scopus, Web of Science, and
the critical role of journal
categories in this process."
Indexation
• In the context of academic
publishing, "indexation" refers
to the process of including a
journal in various indexing
and abstracting databases.
These databases are used to
catalog and make academic
research articles more
discoverable to researchers,
scholars, and the wider
academic community.
Indexation serves several
important purposes:
The role of the indexation
Increased Visibility: Being indexed in reputable databases increases the visibility
of a journal and its articles. This means that researchers can more easily find and
access the journal's content when conducting literature searches.
Academic Recognition: Indexation in well-established databases is often
considered a mark of quality and scholarly credibility. It can enhance the
reputation of the journal and the authors whose work is published in it.
Global Reach: Indexation in international databases allows a journal to reach a
global audience. Researchers from around the world can access and cite articles
from the journal.

  • 5. Indexation • In the context of academic publishing, "indexation" refers to the process of including a journal in various indexing and abstracting databases. These databases are used to catalog and make academic research articles more discoverable to researchers, scholars, and the wider academic community. Indexation serves several important purposes:
  • 6. The role of the indexation Increased Visibility: Being indexed in reputable databases increases the visibility of a journal and its articles. This means that researchers can more easily find and access the journal's content when conducting literature searches. Academic Recognition: Indexation in well-established databases is often considered a mark of quality and scholarly credibility. It can enhance the reputation of the journal and the authors whose work is published in it. Global Reach: Indexation in international databases allows a journal to reach a global audience. Researchers from around the world can access and cite articles from the journal.
  • 7. The role of the indexation Citation Tracking: Many indexing services provide citation tracking, which allows researchers to see how often a particular article has been cited by other researchers. This can help gauge the impact and influence of the research. Research Funding and Evaluation: Indexation can play a role in research evaluation and funding decisions. Some funding agencies and institutions may require that research be published in indexed journals to be eligible for grants or promotions. Facilitating Research: Researchers often rely on indexing databases to identify relevant literature for their research projects. Indexation helps streamline the research process by providing a centralized location to search for scholarly articles.
  • 8. The role of the indexation • Some of the well-known indexing and abstracting databases in the academic world include: • PubMed (for medical and life sciences) • Scopus • Web of Science (formerly known as ISI Web of Science) • Google Scholar • EMBASE (for biomedical research) • PsycINFO (for psychology) • ERIC (for education) • IEEE Xplore (for engineering and technology)
  • 9. II. Understanding Scopus • Overview of Scopus as a comprehensive abstract and citation database • Key features and benefits for researchers • How Scopus indexes and ranks scholarly content • Demonstration of searching for papers and journals in Scopus
  • 10. Scopus ? • launched by Elsevier, a leading academic publishing company, in November 2004, Scopus is a bibliographic database and abstracting service that covers a wide range of academic disciplines. It is designed to provide comprehensive and interdisciplinary coverage of scholarly literature, including scientific journals, conference proceedings, and patents.
  • 11. key features and benefits for researchers Comprehensive Coverage: • Scopus covers a wide range of academic disciplines, including science, technology, medicine, social sciences, and arts and humanities. This comprehensive coverage allows researchers to access literature from various fields. Extensive Database: • The database includes a vast collection of scholarly journals, conference proceedings, and patents. This extensive content enables researchers to find relevant and up-to- date information in their respective fields. Citation Analysis: • Researchers can use Scopus to analyze citation data, which helps assess the impact and influence of their own work or the work of others. This feature is valuable for understanding the scholarly impact of publications.
  • 12. key features and benefits for researchers Author Profiling: Scopus provides tools for creating author profiles, allowing researchers to showcase their scholarly contributions and track the publications and citations associated with their name. This can be useful for academic networking and collaboration. Affiliation Search: Users can search for publications affiliated with specific institutions, making it easier to identify research output from a particular university or research organization. Journal Metrics: Scopus offers metrics for journals, such as the CiteScore, which provides a measure of the average citations a journal receives over a certain period. This helps researchers choose reputable and influential journals for publishing their work.
  • 13. III. Web of Science: A Deep Dive • Introduction to Web of Science as a multidisciplinary citation database • Comparison with Scopus in terms of coverage and features • Highlighting the citation indexing process • Live demonstration of using Web of Science to explore research literature
  • 14. Web of Science • Web of Science is a comprehensive research database and citation indexing service provided by Clarivate Analytics. It is widely used by researchers, academics, and institutions to access scholarly literature, track citation metrics, and perform bibliometric analysis. Web of Science covers a broad range of disciplines, including science, social sciences, arts and humanities, and more.
  • 15. Key features and benefits for researchers In addition to the features that Scopus provides, WOS has other unique features such as: • Journal Impact Factor: Web of Science provides the Journal Citation Reports (JCR), which includes the Journal Impact Factor (JIF) for thousands of scholarly journals. The JIF is a widely used metric that measures the average number of citations received by articles published in a journal over a specific period. • ResearcherID: ResearcherID is a unique identifier associated with Web of Science profiles, allowing researchers to distinguish themselves and ensure proper attribution of their work.
  • 16. Scopus and web of Science: Deffirences • Web of Science and Scopus are both comprehensive bibliographic databases widely used in the academic and research communities, but they have some differences in terms of coverage, features, and indexing methods. Here are key distinctions between Web of Science and Scopus: 1. Publisher and Provider: Web of Science is provided by Clarivate Analytics, while Scopus is provided by Elsevier. Different publishers contribute to the content of each database, leading to variations in the journals and sources covered. 2. Content Coverage: Web of Science traditionally has a strong presence in the natural sciences, engineering, and arts and humanities. It is known for its coverage of high-impact journals. Scopus, on the other hand, has a broader scope and covers a wider range of disciplines, including a strong representation in the social sciences. 3. Citation Indexing: Both databases offer citation indexing, allowing researchers to track citations and assess the impact of scholarly publications. However, they may use different algorithms and methods for citation analysis.
  • 17. Scopus and web of Science: Deffirences 4. Citation Metrics: Web of Science provides the Journal Impact Factor (JIF) through the Journal Citation Reports (JCR), while Scopus offers metrics such as the SCImago Journal Rank (SJR) and Source Normalized Impact per Paper (SNIP). These metrics have different calculation methodologies. 5. Conference Proceedings: Scopus is known for its extensive coverage of conference proceedings, making it a valuable resource for researchers interested in conference-related literature. Web of Science also includes conference proceedings but may not have as extensive coverage in this area. 6. Coverage of Open Access Journals: Scopus includes a significant number of open access journals, reflecting the growing importance of open access publishing. Web of Science also covers open access content but may have differences in the extent of coverage compared to Scopus.
