There are many different databases, that provide citation metrics, based on the number of citations in the documents, however the most important for all the researchers are three major sources of bibliometric content - Scopus, Web of Science and Google Scholar. But, of course, there are other important databases as ProQuest, EBSCO (Academic Search Complete), Crossref and RSCI (RINC), where you could find your citations and other details. More information regarding the way of measurements and impact factor calculation you could read here.
- To prepare all the Proceedings in the needed formats, incl. BibTex and XML formats, article’s metadata and PDF versions;
- To generate, register and activate DOI for each paper;
- To send the Conference proceedings and all required additional files for indexations to the scientific databases for evaluation and indexation.
The timeline - between 2 and 4 months after the events, depending of the number of the accepted papers. However, how quickly the Conference proceedings will be available in the scientific databases is up to every database. There are providers with 2 -3 months process, there are others with evaluation process between one and two years. Everything depends of the scientific database and the number of accepted after peer review process papers. Have in mind, we couldn’t speed the process of indexations.
Every year, in the post conference period, the SGEM Conference Proceedings are sent for indexation in the most important citation and abstracting databases:

SCOPUS & Engineering Village/Ei Compendex - ELSEVIER
SCOPUS is one of the largest abstracts and citation database of peer-reviewed literature and quality web sources with smart tools to track, analyze and visualize research.
Ei Compendex part of Engineering Village Databases) is the broadest and most complete engineering literature database available in the world with over 22 million indexed records from 77 countries across 190 engineering disciplines. Every record is carefully selected and indexed using the Engineering Index Thesaurus, so engineers can be confident information is relevant, complete, accurate and of high quality.
5 533 SGEM papers are indexed in this distinguished scientific database - since 2005 and onward.

Web of Science - CLARIVATE ANALITYCS (former Thomson Reuters)
Multidisciplinary database for abstracts and citations, the oldest and the most frequently used, Web of Science (WoS)is a combination of six scientific databases. Here you could find an unrivalled breadth of world-class research literature linked to a rigorously selected core of journals and proceedings and citation connections.
The WoS database, where we send for evaluation and indexation the papers - Conference Proceedings Citation Index (CPCI) provides access to worldwide Conference Proceedings and their impact on global research, including cited reference searching to track the emerging ideas and the new research beyond what is covered in the scientific journals.
All GeoConference Proceedings since 2008: 7849 papers in total, are evaluated and indexed in the most important CPCI WoS database. Paper from 2017 and 2018 years are in the process of evaluation and indexation.More About Web of Science

Russian Scientific Citation Index
Russian Scientific Citation Index (RSCI or RINC, connected with Web of Science Clarivate Analytics). This research database host over 6 million publications of Russian authors as well as information on quoting these publications from more than 3000 Russian and world journals and proceedings. It is designed not only for operational support of research activities by up-to-date reference and bibliographic information but also it is a powerful tool allowing to assess the effectiveness and efficiency of research organizations, scholars, the level of academic journals, etc.
All GeoConference Proceedings since 2001 onward are in a technical process of the importing in RSCI.

The British Library is the national library of the United Kingdom and the largest national library in the world by number of items catalogued. It is estimated to contain 150–200 million items from many countries. The British Library is a major research library, with items in many languages and in many formats, both print and digital: books, manuscripts, journals, proceedings, databases etc.
It is a tradition to send every year complimentary copy from the SGEM Conference Proceedings (+ CD version) to the British Library, in order to be listed in their bibliographic database.
