Indexing & Links

National Library of Greece
The National Library of Greece (NLG) mainly aims to keep track (and copies) of all material published in Greece. Its services are mainly focused to the Greek reader and it also hosts the Greek ISSN/ISBN/OPAC. Hard copies of all ETASR collective volumes can be found in NLG and copies may be requested here.

HEAL stands for "Hellenic Academic Libraries Link" and it is actually a consortium of several Greek academic institutions' libraries. HEAL-Link is a member of the International Coalition of Libraries Consortia, an international organization for the promotion of cooperative efforts between libraries internationally. HEAL-link tracks ETASR as it can be seen in its alphabetic index here.

DOAJ - Directory of Open Access Journals
DOAJ is a community-curated online directory that indexes and provides access to high quality, open access, peer-reviewed journals. Categorized, searchable links to free, full text, quality controlled scientific and scholarly journals that meet high quality standards by exercising peer review or editorial quality control. The aim of the Directory of Open Access Journals is to increase the visibility and ease of use of open access scientific and scholarly journals thereby promoting their increased usage and impact. ETASR has been awarded a DOAJ seal, awarded to journals that achieve a high level of openness, adhere to oustanding Best Practice and high publishing standards. You can find ETASR indexed in DOAJ here.

Scopus is an indexing service owned and operated by the academic publisher Elsevier. Elsevier provides several tutorials on how to use Scopus here. ETASR was accepted for indexing in Scopus in November 13, 2022. You can see the indexing tracking progress here. Scopus updates its site once a year (usually in the spring), although delays can be expected (and had been experienced in our case). Until then, the inclusion of accepted journals is documented in the Scopus Source List (in the second tab "Accepted titles") which is updated monthly. A copy of the Scopus Source List  of November 2022 with ETASR included (for the first time) in the "Accepted titles" tab can be found here. The list can be found in the Scopus site if you click on "Sources" (upper right corner of homepage) and then click on the "Download Scopus Source List" link that appears to the right of the page (above the list of results). A direct list of the Scopus Source List is provided here. Related services (ranking, metrics etc) such as CiteScore are calculated annualy and it seems that due to these delays ETASR was not included in the 2023 annual calculation. However, Scopus offers a monthly calculation of citation impact through the CiteScore Tracker. For example, CiteScore Tracker 2023 counts the citations received in 2020-2023 to articles, reviews, conference papers, book chapters and data papers published in 2020-2023, and divides this by the number of publications published in 2020-2023. CiteScoreTracker continues to update on a monthly basis until the next annual CiteScore calculation. You can see ETASR indexed in Scopus and also see its CiteScore Tracker value here.

SCImago Journal & Country Rank (SJR)
The SCImago Journal & Country Rank is a publicly available portal that includes the journals and country scientific indicators developed from the information contained in the Scopus database. SCImago also calculates the SJR metric which is a size-independent prestige indicator that ranks journals by their 'average prestige per article'. It is based on the idea that 'all citations are not created equal'. The SJR metric is used to rank journals in different quartiles. ETASR SJR: 0.37 (2023) and Quartile Ranking: Q2 (2023). You can see ETASR indexed in SCImago, check its SJR value and quartile ranking here.

ETASR joined Crossref (or CrossRef) in late 2020. Crossref is an official Digital Object Identifier (DOI) Registration Agency. Crossref is a not-for-profit association counting thousands of voting member publishers who represent an even larger number of societies and publishers. It was launched in early 2000 as a cooperative effort to enable persistent cross-publisher citation linking in online academic journals. Following its membership, ETASR assigned DOIs to all published articles and even applied Reference Linking (i.e. find and post available DOIs for all references in all articles' abstract pages). ETASR's participation report can be found here (make sure to select the "All time" choice from the drop down menu).  Metadata search and DOI lookup within Crossref can be conducted here.

Clarivate Web of Science (former ISI/Thomson Reuters) / Master Journal List / Emerging Sources Citation Index
The Web of Science / Web of Knowledge collection/services were initially owned and maintained by the Institute for Scientific Information (ISI). It was purchased by Thomson Reuters in 1992 and renamed Thomson ISI for some time after. It was again sold to Onex Corporation and Baring Private Equity Asia in late 2016. The new company was named Clarivate Analytics. In 2018, Clarivate re-established an ISI within its structure. Several alterations in the nature and names of services, lists and products have occured over the years (and different ownerships). ETASR was added to Web of Science and the Master Journal List in late 2015 through the Emerging Sources Citation Index, was awarded a Clarivate Journal Citation Indicator (JCI) in 2019 and a Clarivate Journal Impact Factor (JIF) (commonly referred to simply as "Impact Factor") in 2023. ETASR JCI over the years: 0.12 (2018), 0.24 (2019), 0.33 (2020), 0.37 (2021), 0.49 (2022). Clarivate JCI Quartile Ranking: Q2 (2023). In 2024, Clarivate decided to put our journal on hold and to re-evaluate it which is a currently ongoing process. You can see ETASR indexed in Web of Science Core Collection and Master Journal List here (you will need a Clarivate account, which is currently free). Our journal is indexed as "ENGINEERING TECHNOLOGY & APPLIED SCIENCE RESEARCH" (Clarivate has omitted the comma from our title as it creates a problem in their database). We recommend simply using "1792-8036" (our eISSN) as a search term.
