Summary:

Analysing the productivity and characteristics of Journals is very important and comparing them at the international level is very useful to the researchers, subscribing institutions, funding organisations and professional bodies for many reasons. A researcher gets many clues on the quality of Journals; subscribing institutions get to know many ideas about the kind and quality of Journals before they decide for subscriptions. Funding institutions understand the quality of published research and the assessment of the quality of Journals helps the professional societies to improve the quality of Journals they publish.This study centered on seven objectives and four hypotheses. Subject-wise distribution of Journals in SJR and JCR; Ranking of Journals based on SJR and JCR indicators; Ranking of Journals based on h-index; Correlation between different quality metrics; Citation relationship across the Journals; Comparing the ranking of Journals published in India with International level; type of Journals and their Geographical distribution. This study brought out key suggestions and recommendations for further quality improvement of HSS Journals.
