In my university listing of certain journal in SCI is thumb rule for good reputation of journal. Beside this, there are other journals which have indexing in Zentralblatt MATH, AMS Digital Mathematics, Google Scholar, CiteFactor etc.

Can I consider them good too? What if a journal do not assign DOI numbers to its articles ? Can we still count that journal as reputed ?

So, please explain in detail real meaning of reputation of journals other than listed in SCI.

  • Just to clarify: are you asking specifically about mathematics journals? – Yemon Choi May 16 '16 at 0:22
  • Title edited now, I have included mathematics as topic. – IgotiT May 16 '16 at 0:24
  • The marked duplicate is specifically about mathematics journals, but also see How do you judge the quality of a journal? for some general (not mathematics-specific) advice on evaluating the reputability of a journal. – ff524 May 16 '16 at 0:42
