Giri, Rabishankar ; Chand, Prakash ; Sen, B K

Abstract

The coverage of Indian science and technology (S&T) periodicals in major international indexing and abstracting (I&A) services has been studied. It is found that about 1200 Indian S&T journals are being covered by at least one of the international I&A services and over 300 S&T journals are openly accessible. However, coverage of Indian S&T journals by major citation databases, Web of Science (WoS) & Scopus is relatively poor. The newly launched Indian Citation Index (ICI) promises to cover more Indian journals.
