Abstract: Information value of keywords in scientific papers available through Serbian Citation Index was investigated. The proportion of papers with Serbian and English keywords was calculated for different scientific fields. The number of keywords per paper as well keywords’ length and frequency distributions in different scientific fields were represented and analyzed. Results refer to an unsatisfactory incidence of keywords in social sciences and humanities as well as lack of their standardization and distinctiveness in all scientific fields. A necessity of improving indexing procedure in all scientific fields was noticed.
