The University Grants Commission (UGC) aspires to stimulate and empower Indian academia through its “Quality Mandate”. A public notice was issued by the UGC, to announce the establishment of a dedicated Consortium for Academic and Research Ethics (UGC CARE journals List) to carry out this mandate.

Objectives of the UGC-CARE

  • To promote quality research, academic integrity and publication ethics in Indian universities.
  • To promote high-quality publications in reputed journals that would help in achieving higher global ranks.
  • To develop an approach and methodology for the identification of good quality journals.
  • To prevent publications in predatory/dubious/sub-standard journals, which reflect adversely and tarnish the image of Indian academia.
  • To create and maintain a “UGC-CARE Reference List of Quality Journals” (UGC-CARE List) for all academic purposes.

Need for UGC-CARE List

  1. The credibility of research publications is extremely important because it represents the academic image of not just an individual, but of the institution and the entire nation.
  2. The number of research articles published in reputed journals is one of the globally-accepted indicators considered for various academic purposes such as institutional ranking, appointments, promotions of faculty members, membership of academic committees, the award of research degrees etc.
  3. The problem of predatory/dubious/ sub-standard journals has become a cause of serious concern all over the world.
  4. The percentage of research articles published in poor quality journals is reported to be high in India, which has adversely affected its image.
  5. Publications in dubious/sub-standard journals reflect adversely leading to long-term academic damage and a tarnished image of an individual, institution and nation.

The Scope of the UGC-CARE List

  • UGC-CARE has taken the responsibility of preparing the “UGC-CARE Reference List of Quality Journals” (UGC-CARE List).
  • The UGC-CARE List includes research journals from all disciplines, indexed in Scopus (Source list) or Web of Science (Arts and Humanities Citation Index Source Publication, Science Citation Index Expanded Source Publication, Social Science Citation Index Source Publication). These journals have a global acceptance as quality journals and are considered for all academic purposes. Therefore, all journals indexed in Scopus and / or Web of Science are part of UGC-CARE List.
  • Apart from these indexed journals, a list of Indian journals, especially from disciplines of Arts, Humanities, Languages, Culture and Indian Knowledge Systems, will be prepared and updated quarterly.

UGC-CARE List – Group A

Group A: Research journals from all disciplines indexed in Scopus (Source list) or Web of Science (Arts and Humanities Citation Index Source Publication, Science Citation Index Expanded Source Publication, Social Science Citation Index Source Publication).
