The inclusion of a journal such as the Stata Journal in an external
index means that references to papers published in that journal (and
their references) are included in a (usually vast) database maintained
by the index publisher. That makes those papers more visible to users of
that index. (Note, however, that this is typically not retrospective: it
doesn't mean that the entire back run is added.) 

But it appears that Ricardo wants to know (for example) what has been
published in the Stata Journal on ROC and related topics. 

If so, the easiest way to find that out is within Stata. Use -search,
sj-. 

In my up-to-date copy of Stata 11 I find this:

All the papers in the Stata Journal and the Stata Technical Bulletin are
included in the data accessed by -search-. Ricardo's results may differ
if he is not using an up-to-date Stata, but he should be able to use
-findit- and get similar results. 

Alternatively, Ricardo can visit 

http://www.stata-journal.com/archives.html

and search using keywords.

I want may different references.
More urgently I need ROC curve references.
