UGC decides to set up Consortium for Academic and Research Ethics (CARE) to refine and strengthen research publication

New Delhi, 08 January 2019: Credibility of Research Publications is extremely important because it has a direct impact upon the individual, institutional and National image. With an aim to refine and strengthen the University Grants Commission (UGC) approved list of journals, the UGC has issued a Public Notice dated 28th November 2018, and decided to establish a Consortium for Academic and Research Ethics (CARE).

The good quality Research Journals in disciplines under Social Sciences, Humanities, Languages, Arts, Culture, Indian Knowledge Systems etc., will be maintained by CARE and referred to as ‘CARE Reference List of Quality Journals’. This will be used for all academic purposes. The ‘CARE Reference List of Quality Journals’ will be regularly updated and published by the UGC and the Members of the Consortium at their respective websites.


UGC has constituted a Committee under the Chairmanship of Prof. P. Balram, to review its quality mandate relating to promotion of Research and to review the existing MPhil/ PhD Regulations.

This information was given by the Minister of State (HRD), Dr. Satya Pal Singh yesterday in a written reply to a Lok Sabha question.

  1. UGC should consider encouraging creative writing of college and university students. If necessary, a separate Journal can be published for this purpose. And the young authors ( from 20 to 35 years of age ) should be motivated to engage in creative writing alongside their academic pursuits by giving them awards, fellowships, and other kinds of incentive on a regular basis.

    This endeavour will make the young students more innovative and more pro-life, which is the need of the hour.
