I found some discussion on how one should avoid journals on Beall's list.

I wish to know about other such lists to ascertain good journals.

Specifically, is ABDC 2013 a good list to assess journal quality ?



It depends what you mean by 'quality'.

I would argue the very notion of ranking journals as this list does is deeply unsound [see Brembs, Button, Munafò (2013)]. The quality of content in most academic journals is variable. Great articles can be found amongst the mediocre, and likewise mediocre articles can hide in issues full of high-quality articles.

Journals are a lazy proxy for the evaluation of 'quality' of content.
