Third International Conference on Open Repositories 2008, 1-4 April, Southampton, UK
The National Citation Index as a Platform to Achieve Interoperability of a National Journals Repository
Introduction: In Serbia, there is a specific organizational framework for disseminating S&T information. The central position in the system is given to the locally published journals (LPJs) selected and indexed in the SCIndeks: The Serbian Citation Index. The chronic problem of SCIndeks maintenance is the lack of timeliness in journals publishing and irregular delivering of newly published issues for indexing. To solve this problem the national Journals Repository (JR) was established in the National Library of Serbia (NLS) and integrated with SCIndeks, as well as with its derivatives . Here, we describe the benefits from such an operation.
