Journal and its indexing
-Dr. Ved Nath Jha
In order to validate the journals, there are so many indexing and citation agencies exist that make safe to researcher from fake journal and predatory conferences, given as
- Google Scholar
- ISI Indexing
- Index Copernicus
- Open J Gate
- Ulrich’s International Periodical Directory
In this post, I want to prefer four internationally-acclaimed indexers in various science fields: ISI Indexing, Scopus, Google Scholar, and PubMed.
National Institutes of Health and the US National Library of Medicine
ISI (Institute for Scientific Information) Indexing
A Canadian multinational media conglomerate is Thomson Reuters that has a number of sub-sets, one of which is the Web of Science Database (WOS).
WOS was originally produced by the Institute for Scientific Information (ISI) and is currently maintained by Clarivate Analytics. WOS journals provide the following indexes: Social Science Citation Index, Arts & Humanities Citation Index, Science Citation Index(SCI) Expanded and recently-added Emerging Sources Citation Index.
The articles that are indexed on this database are popularly known as ISI articles. WOS has two types of journals: one with Impact Factor (JCR Journals) and the other without Impact Factor (ISI Listed Journals). You can refer to this link to make sure a magazine is indexed in Thomson Reuters Institute.
