J-INDEX was launched in 2020 with 200 open access journals. Today this independent index contains approximately 12,550 peer-reviewed, open access journals covering all fields of science, technology, medicine, social sciences, arts and humanities. Open access journals from all countries and in all languages ??are accepted for indexing.
J-INDEX is the co-author of the Principles of Transparency and Best Practice in Scientific Publishing, which provides the basis for the key criteria for inclusion of J-INDEX.
J-INDEX's mission is to increase the visibility, accessibility, reputation, use and impact of quality, peer-reviewed, open access scientific research journals worldwide.
J-INDEX will work with editors, publishers and journal owners to help them understand the value of publishing best practices and standards and apply them to their own operations.
J-INDEX is committed to being 100% independent and maintaining its primary services and metadata free for use or reuse for all.
J-INDEX is an independent, non-profit organization run by the International Academy of Real Sciences.
J-INDEX relies entirely on voluntary donations from its supporters.
