Open Access: SciELO Journals and Ebooks Now Fully Indexed and Discoverable via Major Discovery Services

From the SciELO Blog:

2016-04-14_09-26-30Starting 2016, in addition to the presence of SciELO in Google Scholar and selectively in the major journal bibliographic indexes, all SciELO journals and eBooks are fully indexed and discoverable via the world’s major Discovery Services – EBSCO Discovery Service, Ex-Libris Primo Central, and the WorldCat Discovery Service.


SciELO is also included in a number of directories and thematic indexes. While the Discovery Services include all SciELO records with the objective of supporting finding them, thematic indexes only include those records from SciELO which are relevant to the topic or subject area in question. For example, LILACS and PubMed include only article records indexed in SciELO in the area of health, while WoS and Scopus include only those article records published in journals that meet their citation criteria.

SCiELO journal and eBook titles are included in the DOAJ and the DOAB directories, respectively. The SciELO team provides a full update of all SciELO eBooks on a regular basis in the ONIX format to the DOAB. Since DOAJ itself automatically harvests the SciELO records rather that obtaining a regular update of records from SciELO, there is no guarantee that all the journal titles are harvested and included in the DOAJ.
