Niche journals out of UGC list

Some respected journals from Oxford and Harvard Universities, apart from journals from well-known Indian institutions, have been removed by the University Grants Commission from its list of approved journals.

The Economic and Political Weekly (online), journals from NCERT and Indian Council of Historical Research (ICHR) and many from the Banaras Hindu University, are also on the ‘removed’ list.

However, sources said EPW’s print edition is still on the approved list.

These instances have come to light with the UGC bringing out its list of 4,305 ‘removed’ publications after “complaints about inclusion of poor-quality or questionable journals”.

The Journal of the Oxford Centre of Buddhist Studies and the Harvard Asia Pacific Review figure among the 4,305 axed journals.
