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).
