AIP Publishing recognizes the importance of enhancing visibility and discoverability of published research by including published research in abstracting and indexing (A+I) databases that researchers use. We support the work of A+I services by providing researchers with access to all of our published proceedings volumes upon publication. However, how quickly selected proceedings are available in an A+I service is up to the provider; AIP Publishing has no influence on this timeframe. AIP Conference Proceedings are indexed in a number of services, including these leading databases:

  • The Conference Proceedings Citation Index (part of Web of Science)
  • Scopus (Elsevier)
  • Inspec
  • Chemical Abstracts Service (CAS)
  • Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Clarivate is currently experiencing an indexing backlog for conference proceedings and has provided the updated criteria on their website. Additional information: Web of Science Conference Proceedings Citation Index Evaluation Process and Selection Criteria.

If you believe our proceedings should be indexed in additional databases, including specialist services used by your research community, please send an email to
