This report provides a complete and up-to-data review of the abstracting and indexing services available in water resources engineering. Abstracting and indexing services were evaluated from all over the world to find out whether the existing services are adequate in number, quality and coverage. The criteria of standardization of data elements and of compatibility of products were investigated also. Some conclusions and recommendations are given with the aim to assist editors of abstracting services to enhance the value of their publications through the introduction of useful features which are found in some but not all services, and the elimination of certain shortcomings.
