Collections of scientific reports and professional scientific journals of the IASHE expand the scale of their scientific indexing on a regular basis. Our editions gradually become figurants of more and more authoritative databases.
However it should be noted that the most authoritative databases existing today reasonably exclude non-periodical editions (monographs, collections etc.) from the list of editions allowed to be indexed. This is connected with the circumstance that authoritative professional indexing on the international level is based on the obligatory observance of the following requirements to editions:
|confirmed professionalism of the edition (presence of the professional editorial board) as well as high level of qualification requirements to scientific reports;||professional expert reviewing of quality of scientific reports;|
|understandability of the report's publication language for the wide range of experts and persons concerned (presentation of the report in high-quality English or in another widely accepted language of international communication - in this case the extended abstract and English is required);||transparent and objective anti-plagiarism check (originality level analysis);|
|"index" authority - positive scientometric "history" of the edition.|
The set of the above-mentioned factors objectively ensures promulgation, extension to the level of authoritative international indexing and professional acknowledgment (by the global scientific community) of truly high-quality reports contributing to the development of science.
These circumstances also testify of the fact that only professional periodicals functioning on the regular basis, sticking to the generally accepted standards of assessment of quality of scientific reports and having the well-formed reputation in the community of specialists, are able to ensure the proper selection and effective promulgation of progressive and original scientific reports.
Therefore, from one side publications in authoritative professional periodicals are able to provide authors of scientific studies with effective indexing and attention from the side of the international community. From another site publication of scientific reports in periodicals indexed in authoritative scientometric databases is connected with additional efforts and possible expenses on professional reviewing, high-quality translation of the text into English, as well as its scientometric indexing.
Taking the above mentioned into account, the procedures of admission of scientific reports (submitted by authors within the IASHE project GISAP) to publication and their promulgation in collections of scientific reports and specialized scientific journals of the IASHE differ significantly.
