About UGC CARE: To develop an approach and methodology for the identification of good quality journals, the UGC-CARE has taken the responsibility of preparing the “UGC-CARE Reference List of Quality Journals” (UGC-CARE List). The UGC-CARE List has only TWO groups:

  1. UGC-CARE List Group I: Journals found qualified through UGC-CARE protocols.
  2. UGC-CARE List Group II: Journals indexed in globally recognized databases (Scopus, Web of Science).

In this post, we will be providing the Social Sciences journals that are in the UGC CARE list Group 1. More Social Sciences journals can be found at https://phdtalks.org/journal-finder.php. These UGC-approved journals publish at a minimum cost. In fact, many journals publish for free.

How to publish in the UGC CARE list of Journals

  1. If your subject is Social Sciences or related, choose any journal from the below-given list.
  2. Prepare your manuscript according to the journal guidelines.
  3. Send the prepared manuscript and wait for a few days.
