List of Scopus indexed Journals Removed from UGC-CARE

List of Scopus indexed Journals Removed from UGC-CARE

The University Grants Commission (UGC) aspires to stimulate and empower the Indian academia through its “Quality Mandate”. A public notice was issued by the UGC, on the 28th of November, 2018, to announce the establishment of a dedicated Consortium for Academic and Research Ethics (UGC CARE List) to carry out this mandate.

The UGC-CARE Reference List of Quality Journals is now divided into TWO groups, instead of the original FOUR groups to simplify the search process. These are NOT hierarchic or ranked groups.

  • UGC-CARE List Group I: Journals found qualified through UGC-CARE protocols
  • UGC-CARE List Group II: Journals indexed in globally recognised databases

UGC-CARE List is updated quarterly i.e. on first of January, April, July, and October 

Scopus indexed Journals Removed from UGC-CARE List Group II

Based on the complaints received from several journals unethical publishing practice, UGC-CARE started scrutinizing these Scopus indexed Journals in accordance with UGC-CARE protocols. Now, UGC has decided to remove these journals from Group II of the UGC-CARE List.

Note: Any publication in these journals will not be considered for any academic purposes. -UGC
