Indexing and Abstracting

Regardless of the format in which an author publishes his work with IntechOpen, we are continuously working to ensure that published content is indexed in the most relevant abstracting and indexing services to increase its visibility and help authors reach a broader audience.

IntechOpen Journals

IntechOpen Journals are continuously working on maximizing the reach, accessibility and discoverability of published research. We submit all our titles to major indexing services for evaluation once the requirements for application are met.

IntechOpen Journals are currently indexed by the services listed below:

Crossref, Dimensions, Google Scholar, The Lens, Semantic Scholar.

All IntechOpen Journal articles are archived in CLOCKSS.
