The University Grants Commission (UGC) has asked all universities and colleges to appoint and promote faculty members on the basis of its new list of approved journals, in which the higher education regulator has de-recognised names of all predatory papers.

In the new UGC-CARE (Consortium for Academic Research and Ethics) list, compiled by a team of experts including scholars and experts from various academic councils, around 800 verified and genuine journals have been included. On 16th September 2019, the commission sent a notice to all Universities asking them to appoint and promote faculty using the new list as a reference point.

“The UGC approved list of journals has been replaced with UGC CARE reference list of quality journals and with effect from 14th June 2019, research publications only from the journals indexed in UGC-CARE list should be considered for any academic purposes,” read the notice.

For appointments in Universities, apart from other criteria, academic credentials of faculty members are adjudged on the basis of the papers that they have published and the journals in which those papers have been carried.The new rule means that faculty members who have published their research papers in de-recognised journals might be denied promotion if the quality of their papers is found to be sub-standard.
