Bibliometrics and Research Quality
In any research community the word “Journal” refers to record of a serious, scholarly publication of the findings which are most often peer-reviewed. Journals, nowadays, exist in print and in online (Web-based) formats. These voluminous scientific records called “Journals” are mostly used by research scholars (Ph.D. students)/postgraduate students and nowadays even by undergraduate students in engineering with a sole view to get his/her findings validated by experts in that field of research and consequently share it with the scientific community through publications in a relevant Journal.
