Indexing & Abstracting

An indexing and abstracting service is important part of publication process. The journal indexes content at the article level by assigning subject headings (descriptors or keywords) to each one and then making them searchable in the product’s database. These services also index other bibliographic elements of journal articles, including authors, titles, date of publication, etc.

Eleyon has been indexed by several world class databases. For more information, please access the following links:

Google Scholaris an online, freely accessible search engine that lets users look for both physical and digital copies of articles. It provides a simple way to broadly search for scholarly literature. From one place, you can search across many disciplines and sources: articles, theses, books, abstracts and court opinions, from academic publishers, professional societies, online repositories, universities and other web sites. Google Scholar helps you find relevant work across the world of scholarly research.

DOIs provide a persistent link to content. They identify many types of work, from journal articles to research data sets. Typically, someone interacting with DOIs will be a researcher, who will resolve DOIs found in scholarly references to content using a DOI resolver. Such researchers may not even realise they are using DOIs and a DOI resolver since they may follow links with embedded DOIs.

Yet DOIs can provide more than a permanent, indirect link to content. DOI registration agencies such as CrossRef, DataCite and mEDRA collect bibliographic metadata about the works they link to. This metadata can be retrieved from a DOI resolver too, using content negotiation to request a particular representation of the metadata.

For some DOIs content negotiation can be used to retrieve different representations of a work. For example, some DataCite DOIs identify data sets that may be available in a number of data formats and container formats.

When you register your content, you send us metadata and assign persistent identifiers to your content. Members are obligated to assign identifiers to current journal content (but we hope you’ll register all of your content). You can add back issues and non-journal content immediately, or gradually as you are able. You can also register books, conference proceedings, datasets, standards, reports, dissertations, and other types of scholarly content, and we collect a range of metadata as well. You need to send us bibliographic metadata but you’ll want to send us funding data, text and data mining license information, reference lists, abstracts, ORCIDs, and more. Our content registration guide or webinar will get you started.
