Indexing and metrics

According to the Declaration on Research Assessment  (DORA), we believe that the high quality of the research and of its description (i.e. the high quality of the papers’ content) is more relevant than indexing. However, since the carrier of young scholars might depend on journal indexing, here below you can find information on IxD&A indexing and metrics.

IxD&A journal indexing

• Scopus – since Winter 2008 (Issue N. 3-4)
