UGC on the back foot, ‘CARE’ to enlist approved journals instead of a standing committee

The UGC has announced a change in the process of drawing up lists of ‘approved’ journals. Now, a committee, called CARE, will do this job instead of the standing committee of the commission. Forward Press reports

On 28 November 2018, around 9.30 pm, Union Human Resource Development minister Prakash Javadekar took to Twitter to announce a new development. He wrote, “Happy to inform about Consortium for Academic and Research Ethics #CARE by @ugcindia to create a reliable reference list of quality journals from #India .” Jawdekar also shared the notice issued by the UGC on the same day, i.e. 28 November 2018.
According to the notice, UGC’s vice-chairman would be chairman of CARE and its members would include representatives of government and government-recognized institutions working in the fields of socials sciences, humanities, arts, science, medicine, agriculture, and engineering. In addition, the Association of Indian Universities would also get representation in CARE, besides INFLIBNET (Information and Library Network).
