The Office of Scholarly Publishing assists new journals with the indexing application process, which includes potential indexes and databases to be included in, submitting applications, and updating policies and the journal website to satisfy indexing requirements. Below are potential indexes of interest with general information about requirements for inclusion. Contact iusw@indiana.edu for information about where to apply or for help submitting an application. 


Ulrich’sWeb

A database of serial information, including ISSN, editorial boards, indexing coverage, peer review status, and publication history for journals. This resource is commonly used to identify legitimate venues for publication. 

    • If your serial publication is not already tracked by Ulrich's, you can bring that title to the attention of the Ulrich's editorial team by sending an email to ulrichs@proquest.com.
      •  In your email, include the name of the publication and any other information, you can.  An editor will follow up with the publisher or provider and attempt to get the most recent information about the publication.
