Abstract:   This paper synthesizes the actions performed in order to transform a classic scientific research journal – ‘Annals. Computer Science Series’ – available only in printed form until 2008, into a modern e-journal with free access to the full text of the articles. For achieving this goal, the research papers have been included in various article databases, portals and library catalogs which offered a high visibility to the journal.
