Every year, scientometric databases exclude journals from their lists if the latter stop their development or start actively publishing for the sake of money. This topic is relevant and worries every researcher who is thinking about publishing their articles or has been developing one's career for a long time. It is crucial to find the journal, review its activity for a certain period and make sure that it does not get excluded from the database after some time.

Scientific and Educational Centre at Scientific Publications – Publ.Science has prepared a detailed analysis of the recent exclusion of journals, as well as unique advice on how to verify the indexing and activity of the journal and protect oneself from cooperation with substandard journals?
