Are you ready to add your journal title to a scholarly index? How long does it take? Which ones should you consider? How long is the application process? How can your publisher assist? What do you mean you need to re-apply?!

If you’re interested in the answers to these questions, please join us for the first CSE Webinar of 2020 on how to index your journal(s). Learn about journal-specific experiences in getting indexed in the Web of Science, MedLine/PubMed, and ESCI and what each index is looking for to put forth your best application to increase your journal’s accessibility, legitimacy, visibility, and readership.
