Association Indexes

Many associations provide indexes to their own publications - please see the tab for the specific association or society that published the proceeding.

Multidisciplinary Proceedings Indexes

Conference Proceedings Citation Index is a database that will provide information on conference proceedings that have been reprinted in journals. It covers 1990 to the present in all subject areas. This database is a subset of the Web of Science Core Collection.

Go to the Web of Science Core Collection search screen. Notice there is a drop down menu to change your search from "topic" to "conference." Note: At the bottom of the search screen you will have the option to uncheck the other subsets and search just within the proceedings indexes if you wish.

Index to Conference Proceedings lists all conference proceedings acquired by the British Library each year. It can be extremely useful in verifying information on conference proceedings which may have been cited incorrectly. They cover a broad spectrum of international conferences.
