Creation of requirements and specifications for the completion of scientific journals in the SCOPUS database

SCOPUS is a search engine for Elsevier bibliographies and reports (referrals) and is available through the Sci Verse platform. It is considered to be the largest database in the world with references and abstracts of recognized international bibliography with intelligent tools that help in retrieving, searching, solving and visualizing modules by sector of interest.

It includes over 21,000 titles from 5,000 publishers around the world, 49 million subscriptions (78% with abstracts), over 5.5 million conference documents and 100% coverage of Medline. The role and responsibility of Zita concerns the excellent technical preparation of scientific journals for submission to the database based on the specifications that have been announced. The preparation concerns either new publications that will be designed in the appropriate technical way, either from the beginning or from the existing publications.

Zita’s professional and skilled staff has the opportunity, based on experience and deep expertise, to help and support Scientific Societies in their effort to incorporate their existing magazines into SCOPUS.

Detailed review of the magazine
Recording the shortcomings of the publication for inclusion in the database
Covering gaps / deficiencies so that the magazine meets the technical requirements for submitting to the database
Technical support during the overall process
Appropriate submission time

The main points of Zita’s comparative advantage are:

Knowledge of all technical specifications required
Continuous information and training by national and international media
Electronic Journal design platform based on specifications, a unique and innovative tool

Specially modified software for the creation of a scientific electronic journal

The technical staff of ZITA has the expertise to create and manage the specialized website of a scientific journal to control all stages of the publishing process in order to create the conditions for its integration into international scientific libraries.

The software used is designed to facilitate the development of free or non-access to reputable scientific publications, providing the technical infrastructure not only for the electronic presentation of articles in magazines but also for the entire workflow of the publishing process, including the submission of articles, their evaluation and indexing. The platform is supported by “plugin-extensions” applications that allow new features to be integrated, while it has applications that make indexing easier in Google Scholar and PubMed Central. It also includes feeds (RSS), statistics, and reporting.

The software has the following features:

  • Customization capability
  • Full management of the publishing process on the Internet
  • Monitor and record the submission process, as well as their evaluation and publication
  • Data collection based on which statistical studies can be made for the journal.
