Abstracting & Indexing

SWS International Scientific Committee recognize the importance of enhancing visibility and scientific discoverability of all published articles in abstracting and citation (indexing) databases, well-known in the international scientific world.

SWS International Scientific Committee recognize the importance of enhancing visibility and scientific discoverability of all published articles in abstracting and citation (indexing) databases, well-known in the international scientific world. The Committee is doing their best to make our authors and their papers visible and accessible from almost everywhere on the web - because authors' impact is our highest priority!

There are many different databases, which provide citation metrics, based on the number of citations in the documents. However, the most important for all the researchers are three major sources of bibliometric content - Scopus, Web of Science and Google Scholar. Nevertheless, there are other important databases as ProQuest, EBSCO (Academic Search Complete), Crossref and RSCI (RINC).

SWS Conference Proceedings receive ISSN and ISBN numbers, as well as a DOI number. The Proceedings are sent after every event to the major scientific databases for evaluation and indexation. The process of evaluation and indexation depends on the policies and procedures that every single scientific database adopt and on the number of the accepted after the peer review process papers. The evaluation process in the scientific databases could take from 2-3 month up to 1-2 years for some providers (as Web of Sciences for Proceedings). More quickly the Proceedings are visible in Scopus, Crossref, EBSCO, ProQuest, RSCI (Russian Scientific Citation Index, part of Web of Science), Google Scholar, Springer Nature (from Crossref), British Library and other libraries.

SCOPUS & Engineering Village/Ei Compendex - ELSEVIER

SCOPUS is one of the largest abstracts and citation database of peer-reviewed literature and quality web sources with smart tools to track, analyze and visualize research.

Ei Compendex part of Engineering Village Databases) is the broadest and most complete engineering literature database available in the world with over 22 million indexed records from 77 countries across 190 engineering disciplines. Every record is carefully selected and indexed using the Engineering Index Thesaurus, so engineers can be confident information is relevant, complete, accurate and of high quality.

Web of Science - CLARIVATE ANALITYCS (former Thomson Reuters)

Multidisciplinary database for abstracts and citations, the oldest and the most frequently used, Web of Science (WoS)is a combination of six scientific databases. Here you could find an unrivalled breadth of world-class research literature linked to a rigorously selected core of journals and proceedings and citation connections.

The WoS database, where we send for evaluation and indexation the papers - Conference Proceedings Citation Index (CPCI) provides access to worldwide Conference Proceedings and their impact on global research, including cited reference searching to track the emerging ideas and the new research beyond what is covered in the scientific journals.

EBSCO Academic Search Complete (ASC) database

EBSCO is one of the leading online full text databases, with access to full text papers from peer-reviewed journals and proceedings, published by many of the world's most prestigious publishers.

This database is a leading resource for scholarly research. It supports high-level research in the key areas of academic study by providing journals, proceedings, periodicals, reports, books and more.


ProQuest Science Database is a growing resource of 7.3 million full text articles from over 1,600 sources. In full-text format, researchers have access to all the charts, diagrams, graphs, tables, photos, and other graphical elements so vital to scientific and engineering literature.

Google Scholar Citations

Google Scholar Citations index includes most peer-reviewed online academic journals and conference proceedings, theses and dissertations, preprints, abstracts, technical reports, and other scholarly literature of Europe and America's largest scholarly publishers. Researchers estimated it to contain roughly 160 million documents. Here you could measure your research impact, citations and h-index.


This database is citation-linking network, covers over 67 million journal and proceedings papers and other content items (books chapters, data, theses, technical reports) from thousands of scholarly and professional publishers all over the world. Crossref is the only database provided citation linking backbone for all scholarly information in electronic form. The result - an efficient, scalable linking system through which every researcher can click on a reference citation in a Journal or in a Proceedings and access the cited article. Here you could measure your citations.

Russian Scientific Citation Index

Russian Scientific Citation Index (RSCI or RINC, connected with Web of Science Clarivate Analytics). This research database host over 6 million publications of Russian authors as well as information on quoting these publications from more than 3000 Russian and world journals and proceedings.

It is designed not only for operational support of research activities by up-to-date reference and bibliographic information but also it is a powerful tool allowing to assess the effectiveness and efficiency of research organizations, scholars, the level of academic journals, etc.

British Library

The British Library is the national library of the United Kingdom and the largest national library in the world by number of items catalogued. It is estimated to contain 150–200 million items from many countries. The British Library is a major research library, with items in many languages and in many formats, both print and digital: books, manuscripts, journals, proceedings, databases etc.

Mendeley abstracting – ELSEVIER

Mendeley is a platform for researchers to organize, collaborate, and discover research. It is essentially a reference management tool combined with an online social network that allows it to be a collaboration and discovery platform for researchers.

The social network is a searchable database of over 570 million crowd-sourced documents, with real-time usage data and over 2.6 million users.
