Recently, I've received an acceptance for publishing my paper in an ISI enlisted Journal called Indian Journal of Science and Technology. Definitely, it's great.

How can I check the robustness of this journal? How much value will carry on it in academic world?

Can anyone help me, please?

  • It would be... The Q scale would often be computed sometime after the end of each year... You could, safely, consider the most up-to-date published Q scale for your further correspondences...
