Facts of Journal


Journal Indexation is done to increase the visibility and ease of use of open access scientific and scholarly journals thereby promoting their increased usage and impact. Once a journal is launched and has a track record of timely publication and solid content, it is appropriate to contact indexing and abstracting services for consideration. The decision to include a journal is based on several factors, most importantly a great deal of high quality content, with much more in the pipeline, that is produced on schedule.


DOIs are important to authors because the DOI guarantees that readers will always be able to find their work. They will be able to get to the author's content in electronic form readily from anywhere in the world. DOIs are important to students and researchers because the DOIs enable them to find the content time and again. All content on the Internet is prone to being moved, restructured, or deleted. The result is often broken hyperlinks and nonworking URLs in reference lists. To resolve this problem, most scholarly publishers assign a DOI to journal articles and other documents.


Reviewers play a central role in scholarly publishing. Peer review helps validate research, establish a method by which it can be evaluated, and increase networking possibilities within research communities. Despite criticisms, peer review is still the only widely accepted method for research validation. If appropriate, they suggest revisions. If they find the article lacking in scholarly validity and rigor, they reject it.
