Abstract: The rationales for building SCIndeks: Serbian Citation Index are described. CIndeks was built as a hybrid product designed to meet the two "natural" priorities of science in a small developing country such as Serbia: promoting national research results internationally and supporting non-arbitrary, quantitative evaluation of academic entities. Basic technical features of SCIndeks are specified, and economic justification for building a similar regional database as the joint venture is outlined.
