KazNU journals in the Web of Science database
The Bulletin series of Al-Farabi Kazakh National University were included in the "Russian Science Citation Index" on the Web of Science platform. This database now indexes 7 university journals, which is the highest indicator among higher education institutions and research institutes in Kazakhstan.
Three scientific journals of al-Farabi KazNU, namely, the series of the Bulletin "Chemical", "Physical" and "Mathematics, Mechanics and Informatics" have been added to the list of university sources indexed in the Web of Science database.
This database already includes “International Journal of Mathematics and Physics”, “International Journal of Biology and Chemistry”, as well as “Eurasian Chemico-Technological Journal” and “News of the National Academy of Sciences of the Republic of Kazakhstan: Physics and Mathematics Series” published jointly with Al-Farabi KazNU.
The Russian Science Citation Index (RSCI) is a multidisciplinary database of scientific journals that provides global availability of research results included in the Web of Science.
The process of including scientific journals in the Russian Science Citation Index (RSCI) database consists of several stages of assessment, including bibliometric indicators of the journal in the Russian Science Citation Index on elibrary.ru and scientific expertise of the journals by leading scientists.
The RSCI contains exclusively the best sources that have a significant scientific value. Therefore, the inclusion of Al-Farabi KazNU Bulletin series to the Russian Science Citation Index, and indexing 7 university journals in the most authoritative Web of Science database, once again demonstrates the success of the university's strategy to improve the quality of scientific research, publication activity and scientific journals.
