UGC removed Journals list April 2021

UGC has been adding and removing journals from time to time to keep the good journals on the list. In our previous post we discussed, in 2017, UGC came out with a list of around 35000 journals. According to the UGC notification, the journals listed had a high impact and were genuine.

Latter on many journals have been removed from the list including all leading publishers. This leads to a major controversy in the Indian education system.

Now UGC-CARE List has the journals in only TWO groups, instead of the original FOUR groups to simplify the search process.

The Group II lists of journals are basically from the Scopus and Webs of Science indexed journals.

UGC care listed journals are considered as high in standard and the authors need to check the indexing before publication.
