The Index to Scientific & Technical Proceedings (ISTP) is a scholarly literature database, established in 1978. It has indexed material pertaining to international conference proceedings titles, locations, and dates. In addition, indexing terms, references, and abstracts contained within the database are searchable items. It appears[clarification needed] that ISTP is combined with an index entitled Index to Social Sciences & Humanities Proceedings (ISSHP).
The subject coverage is life sciences, natural sciences, and applied sciences in the ISTP, ISSHP, and ISTPB databases. Social sciences, beginning in 1998, are found only in the ISTP and ISSHP databases. The sources are listed as conference proceedings, published in: journals, books, and book series. The above databases are listed within superbases known as: XBIOTECH, XMEDALL, XMEDPROD, XPHARMALL, XPSYCH, XTOXLITALL, XVET.
