The process for getting a book chapter indexed in PubMed is different from the process for journal articles. Once a journal is accepted for indexing, all articles published in that journal are automatically indexed as soon as the publishers submit the files. This is not the case for books. For books, there is something called NCBI/NIH/NLM Bookshelf, and each book is assessed separately. The process is described below:

1. Immediately after publication, we submit our books to Bookshelf for evaluation along with the CV of the editor.

2. Bookshelf assesses each book on three criteria: the CV of the editor, scientific quality, and technical quality.

3. Once the CV of the editor is satisfactory, the book will be assessed for scientific quality.

4. After passing the scientific quality, Bookshelf will ask us to submit specially created files in accordance with their stringent guidelines, which will undergo technical evaluation.

5. Once these files pass technical evaluation, the book and the chapters will be accepted for indexing.

6. After signing an agreement with Bookshelf, which is separate for each book, the books and chapters will be indexed. Indexing in Europe PubMed Central is via their collaboration with NCBI Bookshelf. 

The journey from publication to indexing typically spans about 4-12 weeks. To date, all our books and chapters have been successfully indexed in the NCBI/NIH/NLM Bookshelf and PubMed. While we remain committed to ensuring the highest standards of quality and believe in the potential of each submission, we also acknowledge that the final decision on indexing lies with the discretion of Bookshelf. We kindly remind authors to be aware of this aspect and understand that the ultimate decision rests with NCBI Bookshelf. The following is the list of books that are indexed in NCBI/NIH/NLM Bookshelf and PubMed.
