One of the primary missions of ULAKBİM is to develop products that will reflect the accumulation of scientific knowledge in Turkey. Among the most important efforts realized within this context is TR Index (UVT National Databases until 2014) designed in accordance with the international standards, which aims at providing online access to national scientific output for researchers nationwide.
TR Index developed by ULAKBİM covers five subject fields; namely, Medical Sciences, Engineering, Social Sciences and Humanities, Life Sciences, and Law.
Scientific journals in TR Index are selected according to Journal Evaluation Criteria, by expert committees consisting of academicians and specialists working in related subject areas.
It is possible to make searches on TR Index webpage which is freely accessible. Biblographic information of all the articles in the Index, such as the title, author’s name, abstract etc., is available; as well as the full texts of articles in the journals which allowed free access by signing a contract of participation, starting from August 2000.
