What is a scopus index journal?
So today we are going to speak about uh how to choose a right scopus indexed journals scopus while we try to publish our written research paper on any subject like whichever field you belong to or whichever area you belong to the very important thing is to make sure that you are publishing in a bright journals scopus so that your paper gets that kind of quality and appreciation when you drop it in your resume so that’s what we are going to look at uh today I know it’s going to become like very difficult to choose right scopus index journals scopus at the right moment uh usually there are many businesses coming upon to help in this regard to push our papers towards scopus journals scopus that way we are very much we are very much thinking that somebody could help us to reach uh to publish in scopus but unfortunately many of the mediators are only there to help us okay that’s one way but themselves they don’t know exactly what is the right scopus index journals scopus for your research paper that’s when all the trouble comes so here I’m going to decode some of the best tips for all of you like to get into some kind of understanding how to choose right scopus index journals scopus for your upcoming research paper.
How to choose the right scopus index journal ?
Now here are my guidelines the first thing is uh anytime we want to publish our research paper anytime anytime the first thing is we always depend upon google search engine like we go and type scopus index journals scopus in my subject and google will give you some options and most of these options are ads and most of these options are consultancies mediators we don’t get uh all uh all the way straightly the journals scopus which we want to publish in our paper so this is the first mistakes the this is the first mistake that anybody could do like when and they want to publish in scopus paper so don’t do this mistake like google is very popular to search websites but not for publishing journals scopus papers publishing papers in journals scopus google doesn’t give straight away journals scopus that kind of technology is still not evolved in google okay just don’t type in google search engine like what is the journals scopus in my research paper because google shows most of the websites consultancies ads which help us so the conclusion is we come across mediators on google search that’s the biggest problem so when you want to publish your research paper make sure your research paper um is published in in a right path and google is not right path to search for it don’t do that first mistake stop typing on google search engine about your research paper publications because you will end up with consultancies and mediators that’s first top mistake you should avoid and the second problem with scopus indexed journals scopus is even though you enter you take some direction from your supervisors professors yes such and such journals scopus is existing here and you go and publish your paper and unfortunately most of these journals scopus even are cloned journals scopus like not original journals scopus that’s one biggest problem again in scopus we are really in a situation where we came across cloned what do you mean by cloned which means that the words original journals scopus is here and the other journals scopus is here and both of them come together like uh that’s a clash which one to choose so mostly this journals scopus is what we come we try to publish our papers than this original journals scopus so this is what clone means there are two journals scopus of similar nature same design same colors same contact details everywhere so second thing to avoid is to be aware of your cloned journals scopus that’s very very important when you want really to make sure that your paper is going on the right path and the third mistake to avoid is this is the biggest biggest mistakes of all mistakes that choosing a scopus index journals scopus that has been discontinued that has been discontinued maybe even in 2021 december and now in january 2022 uh you are trying to publish in a journals scopus where there is that’s not still continuing on scopus now how to find this that’s what I’m going to tell you uh as you come along with me in this webinar um okay but try to avoid what I mean is initially I am trying to tell you some mistakes that you should not do it when you want to publish your paper the third thing is be aware of your discontent of the discontinued status of journals scopus and that’s very very important here um having said that the fourth mistake is misleading journals scopus misleading journals scopus what are misleading journals scopus misleading journals scopus are nothing but like the journals scopus that are in a kind they will mislead you telling that their journals scopus is of high quality or this day journals scopus is a kind of q1 or q2 q3 high quality journals scopus but and also index indexing like they may claim that they have good impact factor h index factors and all but unfortunately we need to be very clear then what is uh mentioned on the web page that that such insert is the impact factor sachin such as a h index of that journals scopus or website um so that’s how you need to be very careful uh so you have to be really uh understanding this like what which journals scopus uh is what what are their rankings what is the h index what is impact factor what what is its whether it is uh q1 q2 q3 or q4 without knowing all this just somebody said some journals scopus is there and you push your paper hard work paper and that is where things would again go wrong so that’s why you need to avoid this fourth mistake be careful of the misleading web pages or misleading journals scopus and next is poor quality journals scopus poor quality journals scopus is the combination of many things like uh though it is on scopers uh what I mean by poor quality is these journals scopus maybe now let us say this february 2022 they are they’re well known scopus but when you check it on march um um when you check it uh like um and um thank you for sharing this video uh mr ranjan kumar I appreciate that you are sharing this video and now the fifth this is a mistake that poor quality journals scopus are what is very much alive what is very much alive here in uh scopus this journals scopus may not be in march or this this journals scopus may not be in april very much active so you should understand what are high quality journals scopus what are poor quality journals scopus poor quality journals scopus are those journals scopus which are uh almost like um which are almost like they go into a discontinued state in march or april so how to know that the best way to know that is check the history of the journals scopus and also check whether are they taking money or not or check whether they are they publishing previous papers relevant to the theme of the journals scopus or not like like the title of the journals scopus is something and the paper that they are accepting is some other papers there it’s not matching like team is not matching with the research paper titles so that’s how you need to be very careful about poor quality journals scopus um okay for rapid publication it is okay for now and then and then like now and now but otherwise after one or two months uh it it it is discontinued okay and that is what be very careful so avoid these five mistakes when you want to publish in scopus index journals scopus uh we take care of these things that is don’t search in google search engine because it gives only uh ads and mediators consultancies and don’t uh go with cloned scopus journals scopus that is the journals scopus which look the same as alike with the original journals scopus and the third mistake is be careful with the discontinued journals scopus maybe up to 2021 status journals scopus and fourth mistake is be careful with the misleading rankings like h index and impact factors and the fifth fifth mistake is poor quality journals scopus which will be discontinued next month or after two months or three months they are called poor quality journals scopus so you need to be very careful with these five wrong steps before publishing your paper so now now what is the right way let me go with what is the right way the right way to publish your scopus indexed journals scopus okay scopus index journals scopus is this first please go to scopus database that’s very very very important there is a website to understand to which journals scopus are you going to send that is corpus.
Com this is the website that you are going to catch the moment you get in your mind yes I want my paper to to publish in scopus index journals scopus then at that moment you have to go on scopus database some of them are asking some questions I’m happy to respond in the middle uh hope it’s not a disturbance like a haunted story is asking by my jar of karna kindly post it in english there are many opportunities in history but remember always whether you do jrf or you do net or set all these things are only the entrance gates okay the thing you should do is decide which universe do you want to do phd first that’s very very important go to the university meet the head of the department then you talk to him about your first decide university where you want to do it then you can that is a starting step first of all can we get some insights on free scopus journals scopus please what do you mean by uh likes free scopus index journals scopus means like there are two types of scopus journals scopus one is like uh paid scopus and unpaid scopus journals scopus there are two types okay paid scopers are that they take money and they publish they are very good quality unpaid uh um another way so okay uh before responding to your questions let us continue to you to with the webinar uh I will try to respond last 10 minutes surely and we will clarify all your doubts it’s okay so having said that what is the right way it is scopus.com like I’m typing in the chat scopus.com this is a link okay you need to go there to scopus.com and uh you have to start searching okay and okay once you go to scopus.com now what where what we have to click like once you go to scopus.
Com you have to go to the sources there is one tab like so you are ces sources and that’s when you need to click and you will get journals scopus information there uh now how these cloned journals scopus look like let me tell you how these cloned journals scopus look like for example you take one journals scopus called pencil p-e-n-s-e-e-pency research.com penceyresearch.com this is a cloned journals scopus if you observe clearly this particular journals scopus pencilresearch.com this is a cloned journals scopus because when you open the journals scopus you’ll find all kinds of colors on the website remember when when you want to know whether that scopus index journals scopus is good or not original or not cloned or not fake or not you will understand easily because of the colors of the website these fake websites they give lot of colors original websites will be very black and white okay and with very very minimum colors but whereas uh fake and cloned journals scopus of scopus that they um they give lot of uh coloring on their websites they try to make you believe that that this uh from this is in scopus they try to give their rankings that they try to give their iss and numbers and all in front of the web page it doesn’t look one one word not professional looking so that’s how you will find out it’s our logic and common sense will make us think whether that website that scopus journals scopus is original or fake now uh if you want to like pencilresearch.com I told one fake journals scopus the original journals scopus is from pan france that’s called lapency o aji.net that is the original journals scopus in the same way like we have journals scopus dash innovations.com this is one journals scopus if you open this journals scopus.innovations.com you will get all pinkish color of the website that itself shows that is a feature now how to avoid this clone and duplicate journals scopus now that is the question how to avoid this many other who are who are making this clone fake scopus journals scopus now how to avoid and these things I’m telling you three thumb rules remember that there are three thumb rules to find out uh the journals scopus quality always check home page link of journals scopus on scopus.
Com now if you go on scopus.com if you go on uh scopus.com if my connection is breaking I think uh i’ll have to look into this uh I’m sorry for the signal here um yeah is my voice what if audible uh miss chetra can you just tell me whether my voice is audible right now is it still breaking I think youtube has issues that’s why we have a zoom as a platform always that’s what I prefer anyhow hope let me continue but anyhow this stream will be there available again after this okay how to what are the three thumb rules that you need to follow first thing is always check home page link on off journals scopus on scopus.com now when you go on to thescopus.com remember when you go into scopus.com when you click on sources and when you click on issn number you you type issn number or the given there and click arrow mark scopus will you which journals scopus is linked to that issn number you should learn this to do on scopus because issn number is all about iss number you should know and with that is a number you know whether the journals scopus is good or not so you type on scoper sizes and number and it gives the journals scopus profile page and there in the bottom you will have a journals scopus home page link which means the link from scopus the link is leading to the original scopus website okay there is a homepage link on scopus that leads to original website so that way this is the first thumb rule you have to make sure um okay thank you if it is audible uh if you have to make sure this linking from scopus to the journals scopus this linking home page should be present that is of that’s a high quality that is the best way to um that’s the best way to uh check as a three thumb rules the first rule is check the journals scopus’s home page whether it is there on scopes or not that way you will find out whether that particular journals scopus that you are going to publish or given by mediators or professors original or fake that’s one thing okay and the second thumb rule now check indexed status of journals scopus for example like 2019 to present now you have to check the indexed status if you open scopus.
Com take is a number and check on scopus.com uh which journals scopus belongs with these iss and number journals scopus gives scopus gives the journals scopus profile page and there and there you will find journals scopus indexed status remember this is also very important second thumb rule what does that index status main it should be 2019 to present remember present this is very important it is not 2017 to 2021 it should not be like that okay it should not be 2017 to 2021 it should not be like that it should be 2017 to present the present status should be there on scopus.com when you type in this information okay remember always always make sure issn number is the backbone for every journals scopus to search everywhere on scopus or in on anywhere okay get iss number not home page link please don’t get the home page link or website pages links issn number is everything so with ics number if you type on scopus it will give you all the information about the scopus journals scopus and there you will find out home page links of the journals scopus and also what is it its indexed status from when to when if for example the indexed status is from 2017 to 2021 then you that means in 2022 whether is it is it present or not is a big doubt so you have to contact scopus scopus support is amazing but nobody contacts them remember if you if you write an email to scopus.com customer service is excellent more than anything you will get a reply in three days or sometimes in 24 hours telling the whether that journals scopus is good or not whether it is indexed or not whether it is there or not now but otherwise also if that present p-r-e-s-c-n-t that word is there then that journals scopus is original that is the second thumb rule you have to check it and the third thumb rule is check up to when the journals scopus is indexed by scopus that’s what exactly I’m speaking about in second also you have to check its index and makes make sure whether this journals scopus is going to be in 2022 also that’s very important so there are two ways to contact first one is contact the editor of the journals scopus what is the journals scopus indexing status for example when you publish paper will it that paper will will will that go to scopus database after publication that’s very important so find out with the editor and also find out with the scopus customer support whether your paper will land into the scopus or not that is one thing you need to get into these three thumb rules are very important like check home page link of journals scopus on scopus.
Com and also check indexed status of journals scopus okay from 2019 to present and third thumb rule is whether your paper is going to be indexed by scopus or not after publication then if you are okay with all this then uh let me also continue uh you can continue publication okay you can continue sending to the editors of the journals scopus now there are some methods to catch predatory journals scopus first one is other search second is title search third one is university search fourth one is publisher search fifth one is sai mago search the and the next one is sham web design means colorful web design so with all these you can search on uh scopus what my recommendation is try to spend on scopus more please spend more on scopus that’s very very important so uh just click everywhere again and again every day for one month that’s where you will come that you’ll get that knowledge what is in scopus.com how journals scopus are categorized how journals scopus are given ranking how to look at profile pages of journals scopus how journals scopus are there on how long they are they’re existing on scopers what is the customer support that they give us so it is a lifelong practice if once you know what is there in scopus.
Com which journals scopus are there belonging to your discipline belonging to your subject remember let me tell you you will wonder how many journals scopus you you don’t know to publish your paper you will wonder if you see the database we only know because of professors in our universities okay this journals scopus publishes our paper all mediators online google only these journals scopus are there who can publish up here but you will wonder if you search scopus database how many journals scopus are there so you will wonder so in your discipline so that’s when you need to search scopus database that is I highly recommend that when you want to publish scopus journals scopus and next still remember choosing your scopus journals scopus that is relevant to your research topic is very very important now there are remember there are four types of scopus index journals scopus there are four types scopus itself categorized according to the rankings maybe h index or impact factors they are q1 okay q1 q2 q3 q4 these are the journals scopus scopus categorized you can even filter on scopus.com now what are q1 journals scopus q and journals scopus are of high quality like if you send paper to them they may take around up to two years to publish your paper remember q1 journals scopus may take from 9 months anywhere to two years to publish paper that is the power of q1 scopus journals scopus it takes longer time but at the same time they will never get deleted on scopus and also they they are evergreen of high quality okay your resume becomes your curriculum with higher becomes powerful and the queue to scopus journals scopus these are like seven to eight months period also these are of good quality and q3 your paper gets published around in six months to eight months time and q force corpus journals scopus around four months to six months you will get initial review so these are the four types of uh journals scopus that scopus um categorized uh journals scopus now having said that like um how to write a sample email to editor now you you have your paper now just I have told you all the things how to search your journals scopus in your subject now you got one journals scopus from scopus and you want to publish your paper don’t go to any mediators or professors just send email to the editor okay there is always contact contact of a editor on every journals scopus now for suppose you selected one journals scopus from scopus database after verifying all the fact is what I’ve been saying for the last half an hour and now you can send one sample image here like now this I have written for you dear editor okay journals scopus name you mentioned issn number homepage link remember to do this for because tomorrow when you want to search come back and search again then you don’t need to get confused which journals scopus this email has been sent or what was the iss number what was the home page link for example if you would have if you would get positive response from editor you don’t need to go back and search which journals scopus was that exactly that you had sent email and you got prostitute response so always make sure whenever you send email to the editor you purposefully write the editor his name and journals scopus names is number home visiting then you start the body I am write your name from india or any other country I have written a good quality research paper under the discipline of dash the title of my paper is an inverted commas dash if you feel that my paper is fits your journals scopus that’s very very very very very important remember don’t waste your time sending your paper to the journals scopus which doesn’t accept your theme that’s very important many scholars are wasting time six months to eight months sitting there and at the end the paper gets rejected that’s why use this sentence in your email if you feel that my paper fits the theme of your journals scopus I would like to submit my paper can I submit this paper to your journals scopus thanking you and you can just mention your orc id or email mobile number whatsapp or where are you from writing and all okay so there’s a sample email okay having said that now we will uh also learn what are the some things like editors usually reject papers so I have written some five things here that is first thing is just I am speaking in my email which I gave you sample image unsuitability of paper now what is this unsuitability of paper every journals scopus has its own theme even though it is from your subject even though from it is from your branch there are sub themes for every journals scopus they may not publish the title the theme of your research paper if it doesn’t matches their theme though it is from your branch or from your subject so that’s why be careful with this that’s where always contact editor without contacting editor without telling him the title of people never send paper or never register your paper with them on any portal because once you’ve done this you can’t take it back again so that is why be careful that your paper doesn’t get rejected means the first step is think whether your paper is suitable to the journals scopus or not before sending that’s the first thing now I will read now one real time email that a scholar got it dear colleague see I’m just reading it dear colleague many thanks for your inquiry I am afraid that the subject of your proposed article doesn’t sound suitable for our journals scopus I wish you all the best in placing it elsewhere best which wishes richard happy he bit now this is one real time really given email that you will encounter when if you don’t send paper to the right journals scopus and for example another email also I will read this is also recently one scholar received thank you for your interest in our general journals scopus unfortunately your paper does not fill the topic requirement of hippogriffer rivista that refers only to hispanic literature and culture of the golden age period 16th and 17th centuries your sincerely marilla in suwa so this particular journals scopus is only accepting hispanic literature and culture of the golden age okay that may be belonging to history because you have history paper you cannot send a director to them because their their team is very very narrow narrowed that’s when you’ll get rejection okay now okay if your paper fits to the journals scopus what is the second thing you have to see unacceptable language remember there are thousands of journals scopus all journals scopus may not publish in english some journals scopus may publish some themes in english some themes in other languages so you have to be careful what type of language that they are accepting okay now let me again remember read email of rejection we we do not publish articles written in any other language but russian as for the subject of your paper we have more than once addressed the work of uh on our pages and another journals scopus we of this cannot be accepted okay it’s a it’s a big email so these people are very clear about that they are only publishing about that particular team in in russian only and not in english so you to be careful but this may not happen it is a rare occasion okay and third issue that your paper may get rejected is scientific paper versus critical paper remember whether your paper is scientific or critical now critical there is a difference between an essay a review paper a critical paper or a scientific paper and all so you should be very well aware what type of papers this journals scopus is accepting now otherwise you will get a rejection like this we have considered your article proposed to our journals scopus we are sorry but your article doesn’t meet the requirements for a scientific article and cannot be published in the journals scopus so your pep this is what another real-time email and the fourth where when your paper gets rejected is flooded of papers for example when your papers if you send the late at the last deadline now for example this is february the deadline is february 27th journals scopus is accepting papers journals scopusism means they’re inviting papers let’s think if you send the last date what does it mean by the time journals scopus receives flood of papers and you know these for each volume they only require maybe 30 other positions 30 feelings now what they do even though they have the deadline they sometimes they may not bother for the last one week of the deadline to consider papers anymore and they will shift it to other volumes so that way your paper gets even more delayed you won’t get responses this happened many times with scholars why their papers are not getting reviewed uh fast okay so here we are sorry one more example I am just reading out we are sorry to inform you that we have been suggested not to publish your paper we are waiting for the second opinion but however there will be a lot of work to be done if the second reviewer suggests the paper can be published we believe it will not be before the end of the year because our next two issues are already completed so this is how things would be going on okay so having said that the fifth place where your paper gets rejected is uh formatting formatting and all the guidelines remember if you are formatting if you have wrong formatting and that’s when you will be in difficult position because every journals scopus has different formattings every journals scopus has different other guidelines it may be professional you whatever you are doing format is the amount of space the amount of putting your block quotations normal quotations the way you are using the references bibliography and the space the everything the formatting differs from each journals scopus because that is in editor’s hand so be careful don’t send the paper that is very much accepted in another journals scopus the format to another journals scopus all of a sudden always read the formatting and other guidelines and your paper may not gets may not get rejected okay so it may take so much time to format around three hours two hours sometimes for example for non-technical people because you have to be careful to reach each and every point how the format should be whether it should be apa or mla or what type of format also you should be very careful and finally I would like to tell about some helpful sites some mediators are there but I don’t suggest but as a part of the webinar i’ll give you i’ll give you some helpful websites like um ada conference arda one more you can take help from them in ifv rp dot in they are helping for pay-per-publications and uh igrdvo syrup.
Org s-a-r-a-p-s-a-i-r-a-p and there are many many whatsapp groups going on who are helping out but remember whether whether when you deal with mediators please don’t send your papers to them beforehand and their acceptance letters are not valid and never pay money beforehand okay you have to be very careful with the mediators because they mostly suggest uh wrong journals scopus okay so this is uh like a quick uh overview of um how to go about with your scopus publications and having done that now I’d like to clear some doubts here so here are some doubts can you speak about the difference between abdc journals scopus and scopus journals scopus see there are different kinds of platforms different kinds of platforms it’s not like uh uh every platform has its own unique quality now for instead of like uh knowing the difference like we can’t tell that one is of high quality one is of low quality everything has its own quality with two things that is h index impact factor whether it is any platform whether it is any platform there are many platforms like uh willie platform and we have uh other ieee uh platforms and also ugc approved journals scopus and we have many many platforms like uh even we don’t know how many are there scopus is one thing that is uh that is of uh people know it of quality and web of science is one thing uh people know of its quality.
Irrespective of quality first you should understand what type of journals scopus are good for your resume or your university is accepting that’s first thing very important okay and whether that university what you are applying for or to make your resume powerful what is that quality means h index any journals scopus h index is very important impact factor is very important if if it is there then that is normally a high quality journals scopus garfall university very good okay you can visit garwal university and speak with head of department that you want to do phd in history and he will guide you how the process is going to be there any other doubts you can just to push it here I will quickly respond it okay then um thank you for all for attending this quick question short webinar um publishing your paper means the first thing is please bring quality to your paper and the second thing is after bringing quality we are all educated people you can you can directly send paper to editors second thing third thing if you are in a situation where paper should be very much in urgent need paper is very much that you require in one month then that is the time you can approach low quality journals scopus depending upon the needs of the university as a quick thing that’s okay no other way for that so their mediators are another assistance plays great role so but most of the time if you have enough time like four months three months then kindly contact directly the editors and then that’s when you’ll be you’ll be bringing quality to your papers okay thank you all I’m ending the stream and if any doubts you can chat and i’ll reply you can comment uh in this video probably i’ll post this video right now thank you.
