UGC Approved List of Journals has been replaced by UGC-CARE list Journal.
UGC has set up a Consortium for Academic and Research Ethics (CARE) to match global standards of high-quality research in all academic disciplines under its purview and to ensure prevention of academic misconduct that includes plagiarism in academic writing among students, faculty, researchers, and staff.
The UGC CARE has been set up to identify, continuously monitor, report and maintain “UGC-CARE Reference List of Quality Journals”. It’s a standard quality that every journal must follow.
Scopus indexed journals
Scopus is Elsevier’s abstract and citation database launched in 2004. Scopus covers nearly 36,377 titles (22,794 active titles and 13,583 inactive titles) from approximately 11,678 publishers, of which 34,346 are peer-reviewed journals in top-level subject fields: life sciences, social sciences, physical sciences and health sciences. It covers three types of sources: book series, journals, and trade journals. All journals covered in the Scopus database, regardless of who they are published under, are reviewed each year to ensure high quality standards are maintained. Searches in Scopus also incorporate searches of patent databases.[1] Scopus gives four types of quality measure for each title; those are h-Index, CiteScore, SJR (SCImago Journal Rank) and SNIP (Source Normalized Impact per Paper).
SCImago Journal Rank
SCImago Journal Rank (SJR indicator) is a measure of scientific influence of scholarly journals that accounts for both the number of citations received by a journal and the importance or prestige of the journals where such citations come from. A journal's SJR is a numeric value indicating the average number of weighted citations received during a selected year per document published in that journal during the previous three years. Higher SJR values are meant to indicate greater journal prestige.
The SJR indicator is a size-independent indicator and its values order journals by their "average prestige per article" and can be used for journal comparisons in science evaluation processes. The SJR indicator is a free journal metric inspired by and using an algorithm similar to, PageRank.
The SJR indicator provides an alternative to the impact factor (IF) or average citations per document in a 2-year period, abbreviated as "Cites per Doc
