Abstracting & Indexing
WHAT ARE A&I SERVICES AND HOW DO THEY WORK?
Abstracting and indexing (A&I) services unlock the content of scientific journal articles and eBooks using metadata and abstracts. In doing so, they contribute significantly to the use of scientific literature.
The metadata presented in abstracting and indexing services includes the title, author(s), date of publication, journal title, volume and issue, page numbers, subject area, keywords, DOI, etc.
Users browsing these services using particular search criteria are shown the relevant articles, chapters or books with the metadata, abstract and link to the full text.
If the users themselves or an institution to which they are affiliated have access to the full text or it is an open access publication, then they can immediately use the full text. Otherwise, they are usually shown information from the publisher or other rights holder on how to access the text.
