We celebrate scientific advances and research developments

What we believe

We believe science should help make our world a better place. Whether it's through broadening our horizon beyond this universe or it's through the microscope of how to cure a disease, we have come a long way.

Why we exist

We exist to help people navigate the sea of ever-increasing scientific publications and monitoring the developments in the research community. At SCIJournal.org we celebrate scientific advances and research developments. We have transformed the site into a truly free and widely available resource for anyone. We have opened up access to scientific indicators by journals, categories, publishers, and countries from the information contained in the Scopus® database (Elsevier B.V.) and SCImagojr.

What we do

Researchers and editors use our site to monitor and analyze scientific journals across domains. We have indexed 27 major scientific domains with more than 5,000 international publishers in 239 countries worldwide.

We are proud of the fact that thousands of journals reference our site and millions of researchers come to our site for guidance every year. We continue to look for ways to improve and wellcome if you have any feedback for us. You can either complete a survey here or write to our editorial team at [email protected].

Frequently Asked Questions

Q1. What is your processing fee, time, and process for publishing a paper?

We are a platform that hosts information on scientific journal impact factors, which include journals that are SCI-grade (see next question). Therefore, we do not and cannot publish your paper on behalf of any publisher. Under the current administration, we do not intend to monetize the trust of researchers by selling their submission for a fee from prospect publishers.

Q2. What is a SCI journal?

The Science Citation Index (SCI) is a citation index originally produced by the Institute for Scientific Information (ISI) and created by Eugene Garfield. It was officially launched in 1964.

The larger version (Science Citation Index Expanded) covers more than 8,500 notable and significant journals, across 150 disciplines, from 1900 to the present. These are alternatively described as the world's leading journals of science and technology, because of a rigorous selection process.

SCI was originally created by ISI, which was then run by Thomson Reuters and sold to Clarivate Analytics.

SCI is a highly exclusive index that includes “only journals that demonstrate high levels of editorial rigor and best practice”as defined by the Web of Science Group. In practical terms, SCI or the Web of Science Core Collection is often used as a way to prove the quality of a journal. Most of these journals are tracked in terms of citation and publications, which are used as the basis for Impact Factor. IF is often considered an indication of journal quality, which as we have discussed in our article can be highly controversial.

Q3: How do I verify that a journal is indexed in ISI, Scopus, or Scimago?

A3: The sure and safest way to check is to log on to Web of Science Master Journal List - WoS MJL by Clarivate. Once you log in you can simply search by the full journal name or the ISSN number. The search result will show if your target journal is indexed in SCI, SCI-E, or ESCI. Please note that all SCI, SCI-E, or ESCI indexed journals are under the ISI web of science database.

Q4: Can we pay you to submit the paper for me?

Currently, we do not offer such service. To publish your paper to a scientific journal, we recommend you to consider a number of actions that might help you decide.

1) consult with your supervisor or research fellow for advice and learn from their experience

2) determine your submission strategy and criteria for a scientific journal, e.g., prestige, relevance, processing time, relationship and factors that are important to you

3) identify a list of scientific journals that meet your criteria and shortlist and prioritize them accordingly.

4) build your research pipeline and scientific journals as you develop your academic career - start with something like a simple spreadsheet to keep track of your progress and learning along the journey

5) check their procedure, processing time, fee, and policy - come up with your own action plans
