Rights and Permissions

The life span of any research begins with an idea and ends in a scientific journal. Every journal claims to be indexed in various databases. A database is a collection of information and journal articles that are organized so that it can easily, accessed, managed, and updated. There are a large number of databases which are managed by various organizations/institutions and each one is different. These databases assist in identifying citations for specific area-related journal articles. There is a growing demand to publish in select indexed journals. The authors need to know and understand the concept behind such databases and also know how to identify the validity of such databases. This commentary is a useful update for authors understanding of indexed journals.
