Scopus Indexing

Our open access books have passed the stringent standards required by Elsevier for getting indexed in Scopus. As per our agreement with Elsevier (Scopus is an Elsevier product), signed in February 2022, all books published from January 2021 will be indexed. Note that it is a lengthy process. Elsevier, being the largest STM publisher in the world (as per Google search in February 2022), processes hundreds of thousands of articles every year. Book processing is different to journals and the files are checked manually. This will take time. The take home message is that, as per our agreement, we will submit the books to Scopus after publication. When they will be indexed is exclusively at the discretion of Scopus. We do not have any control over it.
