Index Copernicus (IC) is an online database of user-contributed information, including scientist profiles, as well as of scientific institutions, publications, and projects established in 1999 in Poland, and operated by Index Copernicus International. The database, named after Nicolaus Copernicus (who triggered the Copernican Revolution), has several assessment tools to track the impact of scientific works and publications, individual scientists, or research institutions. In addition to the productivity aspects, IC also offers the traditional abstracting and indexing of scientific publications.
Index Copernicus Value (ICV) consists of a sum of the points from the two constituents:
Quality of a scientific journal – the quality of a journal is measured on the basis of the level of fulfillment of the criterion in the specific functional areas of a journal based on the IC Publishing Stars mode (the mode encompasses: publishing quality, digitalization, Internationalization and indexation in databases),
The impact of a scientific journal – the impact of a journal is determined by its citation rate, which reflects the dynamics of a journal and the extent to which it has been recognized in the scientific world.
