From a researcher«SQ»s point of view, it is quite difficult to ascertain which of the available journals is the best for publication of their research work, as well as identify the quality indices and determine ways and means of enhancing the international reach of the article. The objective of the article is to explore the various indicators that can be used to scientifically assess the quality of the journal. Keywords used in the search included impact factor, Eigenfactor score, article influence score, SCImago journal rank indicator, and H-index. Each of these indices have some positive aspects and at the same time some associated limitations. In conclusion, in order to assist the researchers to make an informed decision when selecting an appropriate and a good-quality journal, so that their work does not go unrecognized, it is necessary that researchers ascertain the quality of the journal and then submit their research work.
