Indexes Reach a Target Audience
Where journal is indexed will impact how many readers discover your article. In addition, while some readers prefer free articles due to cost of subscriptions, open access journals are often on a "pay to publish" business model, that is, at cost to the author. Quality and scope of the journal are obvious factors in how many clinicians, researchers, educators or other target audiences will find and read your article.
- High quality open-access indexes such as PubMed are searched widely by clinicians.
- High quality open-access databases such as Index to Chiropractic Literature have a narrow scope that makes retrieving relevant articles very straight forward for members of the profession and anyone who knows about the database .
- Well-known subscription databases such a Cumulative Index to Nursing and Allied Health Literature (CINAHL) are also widely used by clinicians and researchers, but mostly those who are affiliated with a subscribing institution.
