Comments

Dear Editor-in-Chief,

Library Philosophy and Practice (e-journal)

Greetings.

We wish to resubmit a manuscript entitled “A Vacant Approach for Ranking of Open Access Journals of India’s: A Scientific Evaluation” for consideration by the Library Philosophy and Practice (e-journal). We confirms that this work is original and has not been published elsewhere nor is it currently under consideration for publication elsewhere.

In this paper, we report on Indian open access journals as per quality bibliometric indicators and scientometrics instruments. Journal quality review targeted comparisons between indicators of significance and merit from reputable databases. This is significant because this research stressed on performance of well cited journals and their informational correlations as predicted by selected indicators complex algorithms. The paper should be of interest to readers in the areas of bibliometric and scientometrics studies under library and information science and related discipline.

I would be grateful if you could let me know whether there has been any further progress on my submission. Thank you for your consideration of this manuscript.

Sincerely,

Shakil Ahmad

Abstract

The aim of this research is to show the presence and effect of vacant approaches to open access journals of India’s scientific journal with a view published in 2018. The excellence of the scientific journal mainly formed bibliometric indicators; Journal Impact Factor (JIF), Eigen Factor Score (ES), SCImago Journal Rank Indicator (SJR), Cite Score rank and Google Index rank. A special vacant approach of open access journals of India was chosen from their community. JIFs and ESs were collected from the Journal citation report and the SJR and Cite Score from the Scopus database, Google index from google scholar Metrix. All journals were listed in distinguished databases of Web of Science (WOS), Scopus and Google Scholar.

The 21 open Access Journals were reviewed and studied the approaches calculated with all necessary formed data reclaimed from the basic and source sites in employing JIF, SJR, ES, CS and GS ranking quality. Interdependence indices were depicted using Pearson’s and Spearman’s statistical interconnection along with the application of SPSS 23.0 software. Tested JIFs varied within 3.03 and 0.551 changed medially in ES 0.00642 and 0.00049 as JSR classed within 0.816 and 0.236, CS value changed within 2.04 and 0.45 and GS value fall within 37 to 12.

Multinomial interdependence within the chosen indices (JIF, ES, SJR, CS, and GS class) for classifying the chosen vacant approaches shows that there is a lofty Pearson’s (r). The analytical interdependence within JIF and SJR indices (rz 0.608) and CS preferably fewer indexes interdependence with JIF and CS class indices for periodicals in the chosen class (rz 029).This interconnection is without deescalate within JIF and ES value (rz0.246). As regard to Spearman’s rho statistical interdependence, a towering interdependence remained within JIF and SJR (coefficient values of 0.649), and a preferably small link within JIF and Es collaborating values of (0.368) indices for vacant approaches for Journals in India.
