Abstracting & Indexing

SWS International Scientific Committee recognize the importance of enhancing visibility and scientific discoverability of all published articles in abstracting and citation (indexing) databases, well-known in the international scientific world. The Committee is doing their best to make our authors and their papers visible and accessible from almost everywhere on the web - because authors' impact is our highest priority!

There are many different databases, that provide citation metrics, based on the number of citations in the documents, however the most important for all the researchers are three major sources of bibliometric content - Scopus, Web of Science and Google Scholar. But, of course, there are other important databases as ProQuest, EBSCO (Academic Search Complete), Crossref and RSCI (RINC), where you could find your citations and other details. More information regarding the way of measurements and impact factor calculation you could read here.

After every SWS Conference, we are working hard to prepare the Proceedings together with other related files (in need formats) for sending to the scientific databases. The entire process combines 2 main steps:

- To prepare all the Proceedings in the needed formats, incl. BibTex and XML formats, article’s metadata and PDF versions;

- To generate, register and activate DOI for each paper;

- To send the Conference proceedings and all required additional files for indexations.


The timeline - between 2 and 4 months after the events, depending of the number of the accepted papers. However, how quickly the Conference proceedings will be available in the scientific databases is up to every database. There are providers with 2 -3 months process, there are others with evaluation process between one and two years. Everything depends of the scientific database and the number of accepted after peer review process papers. Have in mind, we couldn’t speed the process of indexations.





SCOPUS & Engineering Village logoEi Compendex - ELSEVIER

Covering the world’s research literature, SCOPUS is the largest abstract and citation database of peer-reviewed literature and quality Web sources with smart tools to track analyze and visualize research. Scopus was designed and developed with over 500 users and librarians internationally. Its unique database contains abstracts and references from over 15,000 peer-reviewed journals from 4,000 publishers worldwide, ensuring broad interdisciplinary coverage. In addition, Scopus not only offers users citation information about the articles covered, but also directly integrates Web and patent searches. Direct links to full-text articles, library resources and other applications like reference management software, make Scopus quicker, easier and more comprehensive to use than any other literature research tool.

On February 2020 we must send the title: SWS Conference on Arts and Humanities for evaluation in SCOPUS. The process timeline is around one year...

Web of Science - CLARIVATE ANALITYCS logo

Multidisciplinary database for abstracts and citations, the oldest and the most frequently used, Web of Science (WoS) is a combination of six scientific databases. Here you could find an unrivalled breadth of world-class research literature linked to a rigorously selected core of journals and proceedings and citation connections.
The WoS database, where we send for evaluation and indexation the papers - Conference Proceedings Citation Index (CPCI) provides access to worldwide Conference Proceedings and their impact on global research, including cited reference searching to track the emerging ideas and the new research beyond what is covered in the scientific journals.

All SWS Social Sciences and Art Proceedings since 2014 are evaluated and indexed in the most important CPCI WoS database. Improvements are being made to reviewing the submitted for the event articles, due to these changes the last 3 years of the conference proceedings must be evaluated again. This is the main task of the SWS International Scientific Committee, which must be resolved in a short time.

Russian Scientific Citation Index

Russian Scientific Citation Index Logo

Russian Scientific Citation Index (RSCI or RINC, connected with Web of Science Clarivate Analytics). This research database host over 6 million publications of Russian authors as well as information on quoting these publications from more than 3000 Russian and world journals and proceedings. It is designed not only for operational support of research activities by up-to-date reference and bibliographic information but also it is a powerful tool allowing to assess the effectiveness and efficiency of research organizations, scholars, the level of academic journals, etc.

All SWS Social Sciences and Art Proceedings since 2014 onward are in a technical process of the importing in RSCI.

British Library

British Library logo

The British Library is the national library of the United Kingdom and the largest national library in the world by number of items catalogued. It is estimated to contain 150–200 million items from many countries. The British Library is a major research library, with items in many languages and in many formats, both print and digital: books, manuscripts, journals, proceedings, databases etc.

It is a tradition to send every year complimentary copy from the SWS Conference Proceedings (+ CD version) to the British Library, in order to be listed in their bibliographic database. We are working on the last year papers.

Mendeley abstracting – ELSEVIER

The Platform Mendeley

Mendeley is a platform for researchers to organize, collaborate, and discover research. It is essentially a reference management tool combined with an online social network that allows it to be a collaboration and discovery platform for researchers. The social network is a searchable database of over 570 million crowd-sourced documents, with real-time usage data and over 2.6 million users.

All SWS Conferences on Social Sciences and Art papers from 2014 till 2018 are indexed in Mendeley (for more information, groups et., please contact us). Proceedings 2019 are in a technical process of uploading.
