Comprehensive inclusion in Abstracting & Indexing services

We understand the importance of getting your journal into both broad-interest and subject-specific, abstracting and indexing services in order to drive usage and build citations.

We work closely with all the key indexing organizations, including MEDLINE and Thomson Reuters (ISI), to ensure that journals are quickly covered.

For existing journals that transfer to SpringerOpen, existing abstracting and indexing continues uninterrupted. For new journals that launch with SpringerOpen and fall into the scope of PubMed Central inclusion in PubMed Central and coverage by PubMed typically commences a few months after launch.

Please contact if you have any questions or if you would like to discuss an open access journal with us.
