Over the years, many popular indexation services have developed. These include MedLine, PubMed, EMBASE, SCOPUS, EBSCO Publishing’s Electronic Databases, SCIRUS among others. There are various regional and national versions of Index Medicus such as African Index Medicus. In Indonesia, there is no form of standard towards good publication.
