Indexing

Journal indexing is a broad concept essentially meaning that the journal (and its publications) can be found in various relevant databases. The indexation of a journal shows its quality. Before a journal is added to a database, it is checked by the journal indexer team against a set of clearly stated quality-related criteria.

Besides setting a ‘quality stamp’, indexing greatly improves the visibility of the journal and its publications. The more databases the journal is visible in, the higher are the chances that people will find it and refer to it in their own publications.

Finally, indexing provides useful statistics, such as number of citations for an article, author h-index or journal impact factor.

Most of the indexing services require some publication history (up to several years) before they even consider an application from a journal. This is the main reason for Traffic Safety Research journal (founded in 2021) not yet being visible in the most important databases such as DOAJ or Scopus. It is only a matter of time, though, utill we get there, since we follow the highest standards in routines and policies related to Open Access scientific publishing.

Below follows the list of services in which you can find Traffic Safety Research journal already now. The list is updated as we enter new databases.
