Support for scientific publication

Support for scientific publication & targeted publishing

For efficient publication, it is recommended to publish in Scopus indexed publications. For scientific articles, we therefore recommend that you publish in Scopus indexed journals.

Here you can find the journal search section of the Scopus database, where you can check if the journal you want to publish in is listed in the database.

Free publishing and Scopus:

The institution, through its subscribed databases, is eligible for free Open Access publication of journals from certain publishers, some of which are also listed in Scopus. It is worth looking at these Open Access journal lists and selecting the appropriate journal for a given discipline, and then checking in Scopus, either by title or ISSN number, to see if it is listed.

Targeted publishing

Sustainability is an important area today. In this way, Széchenyi István University is also adapting to the new challenges. In terms of publishing, it is also useful to pay attention to the following.

Széchenyi István University participates in THE Impact Ranking. In this regard, we provide data and compete in specific categories, SDGs. (Sustainable Development Goals). For this reason, academics/researchers should include various keywords in their publications.

Targeted and considerate publishing is best achieved by the use of appropriate abstracts and keywords. So it is recommended to include one of the following keywords., in the abstract, the keywords, or the title of the article or paper.

These can also be searched for and applied in the Advanced Search section of Scopus. (In the UN Sustainable Development Goals section at the bottom of the page on the right-hand side search for goals 8. 10. 11.) KEYWORDS in the Annexes menupoint!

What is Open Science and what is Open Access?

“Open Science is the practice of science in such a way that others can collaborate and contribute, where research data, lab notes and other research processes are freely available, under terms that enable reuse, redistribution and reproduction of the research and its underlying data and methods.” (source:

"Open Access (OA) is free, online, digital information. Open access allows the free and legal re-use of scientific results by removing financial and legal restrictions. Open access documents can be downloaded, copied, shared, printed, with an indication of the original source. The Berlin Declaration states: “Establishing open access as a worthwhile procedure ideally requires the active commitment of each and every individual producer of scientific knowledge and holder of cultural heritage. Open access contributions include original scientific research results, raw data and metadata, source materials, digital representations of pictorial and graphical materials and scholarly multimedia material." (Source:

Hungarian OPEN ACCES journals




Open Access models

Green OA

Placing the manuscript in some form and making it freely accessible through a repository or the author’s website.


Gold OA

Gold OA means publishing scientific articles in open access journals. The author pays an article processing charge (APC) to the publisher for publication. (E.G.: THE UNIVERSITY CONTRACTS WITH PUBLISHERS TO REDUCE THE APC FEE)

Diamond/Platinum OA

Journals that provide open access to journal articles free of charge to the author. E.g. university publications, (E.G.: journals of Akadémiai Kiadó)


Non-open access journals in which open access publications of individual articles can be purchased. However, other publications are still only available for a subscription fee. (E.G.: applicable Elsevier journals)
