Abstract

Indexing is a database of higher scientific journals having a good track record of maintaining the ethics and quality in terms of publication. It is the process of creating indexes for record collections. Having indexes allows researchers to more quickly find records for specific individuals; without them, researchers might have to look through hundreds or thousands of records to locate an individual record. It also represents a number referring to a list of terms, definitions, topics, etc. arranged in alphabetical order in order to efficiently guide the readers to the desired information within the content. Indexing facilitates the organization of literature in such a manner that makes the document of interest easily identifiable by the readers. Indexing journals are considered to have a higher quality when compared to non-indexed journals. It is a collection of information stored on a computer or on a set of cards in alphabetical order and hence it helps the reader find information quickly and easily. A useful index is considered as a list of words and phrases used in a publication and is also an organized map of contents, including cross-references, a grouping of like concepts, and other intellectual analysis. The purpose of indexing is to have faster learning, acknowledgment, prominence of persons, subjects, etc. A professional index must act as a liaison between the text and its ultimate user. The study is focused on the concepts of indexing and its benefits to research.
