Pl suggest some UGC approved Lib.Sc journal to publish my research article
Dear Sri Ravi Kumar,
Thanks for your post.
regarding submission of articles for publication, there are certain norms. The most important is journal selection. This is done according to the topic of your article.
I have raised this issue because you have not mentioned whether you want to publish in Indian journal or some International Journal. If you choose to publish in Indian Journal, they are multispeciality, meaning they accommodate article of diverse topics like articles on IT applications, scientometrics, research libraries of diverse subject (like Health & Biomedical Science/Agriculture & Veterinary Science, Engineering & technology/ Space or Atomic Energy and so on) as well as academic Libraries, Public Libraries etc. etc. In my opinion, Annals of Library & Information Studies seems to be the best as it is one of the frontline LIS journal in India & its readership/viewership is probably highest among all Indian LIS Journals.
If you want to publish in foreign Journals, there are Journal of Documentation, JASIST, Journal of Information Science, College & Research Libraries, International Library Review; Library & Information Science research etc. there are so many speciality journals too; like Scientometrics; Journal of Informatrics; Journal of Medical Library Association (of USA),Medical reference Service Qly.; IFLA journal: Library Technical Journal, International Journal of Geographical Information Science;Journal of Classification and so on.
