ARCHIVING, CATALOGING & INDEXING
Long-term preservation and indexing of authors’ articles at independent, reliable & publicly accessible platforms are our priority. Proper archiving, cataloging and indexing of journals increase accessibility of articles and safeguards the scholarly work for future.
ARCHIVING, CATALOGING & INDEXING HIGHLIGHTS
Long-term preservation and broad accessibility of scholarly work
Researchers and physicians around the world report their breakthrough discoveries and opinions through professional scholarly publishers like Qualiten Press. Most of these research and intellectual output that lead to significant advancement in human lives directly result from diligent work by scientist, feedback provided by expert peer-reviewers, and funding supported by members of public. A global community is involved in culmination of scientific output; hence, it is publisher’s duty towards this community to keep the research output professionally archived, cataloged and indexed at independent, reliable and publicly accessible platforms for easy search and reuse by public.
Most of scholarly archiving, cataloging and indexing platforms accept journals that have already shown a time-tested commitment of professional publication, high integrity (process transparency & stringent peer review) and high standard of ethics. Qualiten Journals are in communication with standard archives and indexes for the collaboration and inclusion of our content.

We intend to catalog our content at following standard catalogs and directories:
About NLM Catalog: National Library of Medicine (NLM), the well-known host of MEDLINE and PubMed Central, also provides cataloging service for scholarly journals. To assist users of scholarly content, NLM Catalog provides a list of biomedicine and health journals cataloged in NLM (independent of journals’ indexing status at MEDLINE or PubMed Central).

Sherpa project was initiated in 2002 and currently maintained by JISC (Joint Information Systems Committee), UK to help authors to make an informed decision on open access publication compliance as per funder and institutional policies.
About WorldCat: WorldCat is world’s largest freely accessible bibliographic record that catalogs literature available in worldwide libraries. WorldCat is collaboratively maintained by OCLC (a half century old US non-profit organization) with a network of thousands of member libraries.
Search and discovery of articles
Journal indexes are vital for researchers as they provide up-to-date searchable database of focused, peer-reviewed scholarly content. Most widely used and freely available indexes in biomedical research are MEDLINE, PubMed Central, Google Scholar and Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ). Indexing at these platforms is essential and time taking process.
Qualiten Journals are following all the quality standards and guidelines, to facilitate its indexing at following platforms:
About DOAJ: Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ) is a reputed directory, developed and maintained by Infrastructure Services for Open Access (IS4OA), a UK based social enterprise. DOAJ’s criteria of inclusion comprise journals commitment to best practices in publishing such as quality of content, transparency, peer review, open access and ethical standards.

About Google Scholar: Google Scholar is freely available indexing and web search platform for scholarly literature such as journal articles, books, thesis, abstracts, etc. Readers often search scholarly articles on Google Scholar to find recently published articles from newly established professional journals which are otherwise are not indexed in MEDLINE-PubMed because of the newness of journals.
Qualiten Team is working meticulously for long-term indexing in MEDLINE and PubMed Central, USA. The indexing in MEDLINE and PubMed Central requires at least a two-year history of quality publishing and demonstration of sustainability, and we are hoping to achieve that with constant support from scholarly community.
