UGC CARE List of journals: Download Excel

Download the latest UGC CARE List of journals in excel format. The percentage of research papers published in low-quality journals is reported to be high in India, which has adversely affected its image. UGC CARE list is created with an intention for the purpose of various academic evaluations of institutions and individuals.

We visited the official website of UGC CARE and compiled the complete and latest UGC CARE approved journals list.

Journals indexed in Scopus and Web of Science may be considered for all academic purposes (institutional ranking, appointment and faculty promotions, and award of research degrees).

UGC Approved List of Journals has been replaced by the UGC-CARE list, w.e.f. 14.06.2019. In this blog post, you will be able to download the UGC CARE list 2023.

Moreover, researchers can get the list of UGC CARE-approved journals subject-wise. For, this a list of subjects is given below.


The UGC-CARE List has only TWO groups, instead of the original FOUR groups to simplify the search process. These are NOT hierarchic or ranked groups.

Beware of Cloned journals

UGC-Cell for Journal Analysis, Center for Publication Ethics (CPE) at Savitribai Phule Pune University(SPPU), Pune, has been notified of cloned and online versions of print-only, authentic Journals on its UGC-CARE List. The ISSN, title, logo, etc have been cloned.

Scholars are cautioned against such cloned versions of Journals on the UGC-CARE List and are requested to verify with the CPE whenever they are in doubt about the veracity of any Journal. We also request that news of such cloned Journals be reported to the CPE at the earliest.

Many journals which were earlier indexed in UGC List are now barred to be included in the UGC CARE list. The UGC removed 4,305 journals on 02/05/2018 that are either predatory or low quality. This list of removed journals can be found at this link.
