We believe we are the only private STM (Scientific, Technical and Medical) open access book publisher in the world who submits all edited books for indexing in NCBI/NIH/NLM Bookshelf immediately after publication and charges such an exceptionally low fee. If our claim is inaccurate, let us know with evidence. We will not only correct the error but also will provide a 50% discount on the publishing fee of the online version of your chapter.
All our books are indexed in NCBI/NIH/NLM Bookshelf, PubMed and Europe PubMed Central. The process for getting books and book chapters indexed in PubMed is different from the process for journal articles. When a journal is accepted for indexing, all articles published in that journal are indexed. This is not the case for books. For books, there is something called NCBI/NIH/NLM Bookshelf, and each book undergoes independent evaluation.
Getting indexed is a three-step process. First, each book undergoes independent evaluation by NCBI/NIH/NLM Bookshelf for scientific and technical quality. Once a book has passed the scientific quality standard to get indexed, the second step is to prepare special files in accordance with the stringent guidelines of NCBI/NIH/NLM Bookshelf. Once these files pass verification, the book and the chapters will be accepted. The final step is signing an agreement with Bookshelf, which is separate for each book. After all these three steps, the books and chapters will be indexed.
The process takes about 4-8 weeks after publication. While there is no guarantee that all books will be accepted as it is at the sole discretion of Bookshelf, we are pleased to inform you that all books and book chapters we have published so far are indexed in NCBI/NIH/NLM Bookshelf and PubMed. Indexing in Europe PubMed Central is via their collaboration with NCBI Bookshelf. The following is the list of books that are indexed in NCBI/NIH/NLM Bookshelf and PubMed.
