Abstract: Objective:To investigate the relationship between science production and the indexation level of low- and middle-income countries (LAMIC) journals in international databases.Method:Indicators of productivity in research were based on the number of articles produced over the 1994-2004 period. A survey in both Medline and ISI/Thomson was conducted to identify journals according to their country of origin. A WPA Task Force designed a collaborative process to assess distribution and quality of non-indexed LAMIC journals.Results:Twenty LAMIC were found to present more than 100 publications and a total of 222 indexed psychiatric journals were found, but only nine were from LAMIC. the Task Force received 26 questionnaires from editors of non-indexed journals, and concluded that five journals would meet criteria for indexation.Conclusion:Barriers to indexation of journals contribute to the difficulties in achieving fair representation in the main literature databases for the scientific production in these countries.
