In order to have the Tables of Contents and Abstracts of the contributions in the e-Journal and the Highlights and Insights on the European Forum included in on-line collections and with the aim of increasing their visibility and presence in web catalogues and databases, European Papers is indexed by the following International Abstracting and Indexing Services:

  • Scopus (Elsevier Scopus) is the largest abstract and citation database of peer-reviewed research literature: scientific journals, books and conference proceedings. Delivering a comprehensive overview of the world’s research output in the fields of science, technology, medicine, social sciences, and arts and humanities, Scopus features smart tools to track, analyse and visualize research.
  • ProQuest (ProQuest) is committed to empowering researchers and librarians around the world. Through partnerships with content holders, ProQuest preserves rich, vast and varied information – whether historical archives or today’s scientific breakthroughs – and packages it with digital technologies that enhance its discovery, sharing and management. For academic and professional researchers, ProQuest provides services that enable strategic acquisition, management and discovery of information collections.
  • Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ) (DOAJ), managed by a not-for-profit organisation, is an on-line directory that indexes and provides access to high quality, open access, peer-reviewed journals, which use a quality control system to guarantee their content. DOAJ aims at being the starting point for all information searches for scientific and scholarly journals, thereby increasing their visibility, ease of use, and impact.

    DataCite Search (DataCite) gathers metadata for each DOI assigned to an object. The metadata is used for a large index of research data that can be queried directly to find data, obtain stats and explore connections. All the metadata is free to access and review.To showcase and expose the metadata gathered, DataCite provides an integrated search interface, where it is possible to search, filter and extract all the details from a collection of millions of records. This interface complements the OAI-PMH service, providing an actionable end-point to query DataCite's metadata collection.

  • Google Scholar (Google Scholar) provides a simple way to broadly search for scholarly literature across many disciplines and sources: articles, theses, books, abstracts and court opinions, from academic publishers, professional societies, on-line repositories, universities and other web sites. Google Scholar helps to find relevant work across the world of scholarly research.
  • ACPN Catalogue (ACNP Catalogue) contains the bibliographic descriptions of periodicals/serials owned by the Italian libraries all over the country and covers all subject areas. The ACNP Catalogue is available online to scientific community on its own Information Retrieval system. The whole register of serials published by the "ISSN International Centre" was acquired and stored in order to simplify the catalogue update. In addition an Archive of table of contents and abstracts was realized and integrated into the ACNP catalogue. The procedure allows users to shift searching from catalogue to Archive and vice versa in a transparent manner. The authorized users can directly access the Archive user interface from the “Repertorio articoli” containing about 9 million articles, mainly derived from ISI Current Contents.
  • Dialnet (Dialnet) is a library collaboration project open to the participation of any library that wants to commit to the project. The journals are included in Dialnet by the collaborating institutions, which decide which journals to index, whether electronic or on paper. Dialnet offers a series of quality resources and services for users, libraries, authors and journal editors. One of the main goals of Dialnet is to increase the dissemination, visibility and accessibility of scientific literature, promoting free access to it.

Moreover, European Papers is applying to join, inter alia, the following International Abstracting and Indexing Services:

  • EBSCOhost Electronic Journals Service (EJS) is the gateway to thousands of e-journals containing millions of articles from hundreds of different publishers from all major publishers, covering practically all disciplines. EJS provides a unified research solution that maximizes resource usage while supporting Libraries, Colleges and Universities end users and improving their access to information.
  • Emerging Sources Citation Index (ESCI) was launched in late 2015 by Thomson Reuters as a new database in Web of Science. Around 3,000 journals were selected for coverage at launch, spanning the full range of subject areas. Since 2017 the index has been produced by Clarivate Analytics. The Emerging Sources Citation Index aims to extend the scope of publications in the Web of Science to include high-quality, peer reviewed publications. It ensures important research is visible in the Web of Science Core Collection even if it is not yet internationally recognized.
  • Genamics JournalSeek is the largest completely categorized on-line database of freely available journal information, which includes the description (aims and scope), journal abbreviation, journal homepage link, subject category and ISSN.
  • JSTOR is a digital library, originally containing digitized back issues of academic journals, it now also includes books and primary sources, and current issues of journals. JSTOR is a not-for-profit service that helps scholars, researchers, and students discover, use, and build upon a wide range of content on a trusted digital archive of thousands academic journals.
  • The Primo Central (ex Libris) index is a mega-aggregation of commercial and Open Access content. The coverage is deep and broad, reflecting available journal articles, ebooks, videos, reviews, legal documents and more. This content is carefully aggregated from an extensive network of providers and enriched by the Ex Libris team of metadata librarians to facilitate fast and easy discovery.
  • Project MUSE is a leading provider of digital humanities and social science content for the scholarly community. Since 1995 the MUSE journal collections have supported a wide array of research needs at academic, public, special, and school libraries worldwide. MUSE is the trusted source of complete, full-text versions of scholarly journals from many of the world’s leading university presses and scholarly societies. MUSE’s mission is to excel in the broad dissemination of high-quality scholarly content. Through innovation and collaborative development, MUSE anticipates the needs of and delivers essential resources to all members of the scholarly community.
  • ROAD (Directory of Open Access scholarly Resources) is a service offered by the ISSN International Centre with the support of the Communication and Information Sector of UNESCO. Launched in December 2013, ROAD provides a free access to those ISSN bibliographic records which describe scholarly resources in Open Access: journals, monographic series, conference proceedings, academic repositories and scholarly blogs. These records, created by the ISSN Network (90 National Centres worldwide + the International Centre), are enriched by information extracted from indexing and abstracting databases, directories (DOAJ, Latindex, The Keepers registry) and journals indicators (Scopus).
  • Sherpa Romeo is an online resource that aggregates and presents publisher and journal open access policies from around the world. Every registered publisher or journal held in Romeo is carefully reviewed and analysed by our specialist team who provide summaries of self-archiving permissions and conditions of rights given to authors on a journal-by-journal basis where possible.
  • Web of Science (WoS)Journal Citation ReportsMaster Journal List. By meticulously indexing the most important literature in the world, Web of Science has become the old standard for research discovery and analytics. Web of Science connects publications and researchers through citations and controlled indexing in curated databases spanning every discipline. In particular, JRC offers a systematic, objective means to critically evaluate the world’s leading journals, with quantifiable, statistical information based on citation data. By compiling articles’ cited references, JCR helps to measure research influence and impact at the journal and category levels, and shows the relationship between citing and cited journals.
