The National and University Library of Bosnia and Herzegovina is pleased to announce that the BH library journal Bosniaca, published by the National and University Library of Bosnia and Herzegovina, has been accepted for indexing in the Scopus citation and bibliographic database.
This database offers access to different types of documents such as scientific and professional articles, books, chapters, conference papers, etc., and excludes the possibility of indexing book reviews and abstracts of conference meetings. The Elsevier Group launched Scopus in 2004, and the Elsevier publishing house was founded in the Netherlands in 1880. The National and University Library of Bosnia and Herzegovina with its work, and the work of the editorial board of the journal Bosniaca, increases the variety and quality of published papers year after year and adapts to the standards and high requirements of leading international databases. With its quality and openness to the wider BH and international scientific public, its commitment to provide the most relevant and influential content in librarianship and information sciences, the journal has managed to fulfill the high demands of the prestigious database and become part of the world's leading citation-index database Scopus. The Scopus evaluation team concluded that the articles, especially in the more recent issues, capture current trends in library and/or information science, including, open access, research impact analysis, digitization and preservation, scholarly communication, etc. and this makes its content internationally relevant.
This is a significant step in the further development of the journal Bosniaca and a great acknowledgment of the editorial staff of the National and University Library of Bosnia and Herzegovina and the academic community of Bosnia and Herzegovina for their work so far.
