Japan Science and Technology Agency to Automate Indexing of 90 Journals

Feb 17, 2011

Elsevier and the Japan Science and Technology Agency (JST) reached an agreement to automatically deliver the metadata of 90 J-STAGE journals in SciVerse Scopus. JST has been utilizing Scopus custom data to analyze scientific research in Japan at a national level.

The companies stated that indexing the J-STAGE journals will help expose the published research to the global academic community. Metadata from J-STAGE will also continuously and automatically be indexed within SciVerse Scopus. J-STAGE was launched in 1999 to encourage Japanese research societies to publish their academic journals electronically on a central platform.
