The ICI Journals Master List is one of the largest international databases of scientific journals from across the globe. All scientific journals can be registered with the ICI Journals Master List (registration). Currently, there are over 45,000 journals registered with the database.We follow the progress of over 22,000 most-interesting titles which keep the essential journal information contained in their passports up to date (monitoring).

The ICI Journals Master List has been conducting a complex evaluation of scientific journals for over 10 years. In 2015, over 5,000 journals successfully passed the evaluation process involving a multidimensional parametric assessment. The journals which pass the parametric evaluation are awarded an IC value– valid for 1 year only – which reflects the development level of the journal and its impact force (indexation). The evaluation report is a collection of valuable input that can be used to chart a strategy for further development of the scientific journal in question.

In the year 2016, Index Copernicus performed – for the first time in the history of the database – a comprehensive project aimed at calculating the number of citations of publications referenced in Polish scientific journals in the years 2010-2015. Based on the data collected in the ICI Journal Master List, we determined the number of citations for over 14,000 scientific journals (citation impact), resolving over 6,000,000entries - reference list items.
