Abstracting and indexing
The importance of discoverability: discovery layers, ‘abstracting and indexing,’ and open repositories.
Dream Science’s publications appear in a wide range of abstracting and indexing databases. Different journals are listed in different databases. For a detailed breakdown of journals per repository, see our dedicated abstracting and indexing page of respective journal.
Post-publication distribution of your research is one of the most important things we do at Dream Science. If your research is not discoverable, it cannot advance science, medicine, or society. A lack of discoverability has a negative impact on readership and future citations.
There are many ways in which we disseminate your research out to potential readers:

Despite the existence of specialized research tools, readers still rely primarily on search engines like Google to discover relevant articles.
As our journals are Open Access publications, any visitor arriving at dsjournal.com can immediately access and read your work.
Abstracting and Indexing Databases
Many researchers use abstract databases as curated discovery tools. These could be general multi-discipline databases such as Google scholar, Scopus or Web of Science, where coverage is broad but a selection process is employed based on journal quality (the main index of Web of Science contains only about 9,000 of the approximately 28,000 active scholarly peer-reviewed English-language journals). There are also subject-specific databases such as Embase (biomedical research), INSPEC (physics and engineering) or MEDLINE (medicine). These databases select journals based on quality and compatibility with their respective scopes.
Dream Science trying to works with many abstracting and indexing databases to ensure that our journals are included in both the general indices and the relevant subject-specific databases.
