AbstractBased on the selected corpus of journals, this paper aims to analyse the criteria for their inclusion in the bibliographic and citation database Scopus. The paper takes a sample of three scientific journals from Bosnia and Herzegovina – Social Sciences and Humanities Studies, Philologist – Journal of Language, Literary and Cultural Studies and Historical Views. The results of this paper show that the DHS journal follows the official Scopus guidelines, which indicates the lack of a causal relationship between the journal indexing criteria and its implementation in practice – indexing Philologist and Historical Views while rejecting Social Sciences and Humanities Studies. The importance of these results lies in the systematization of criteria for indexing scientific journals in a specific database, as well as in a better understanding of the Scopus inclusion process, guided by a comparison of recent bibliometric indicators.
