Abstract

Publishing scientific content as research papers, reviews, reports, and short communication is conventional and the most widely used practice in current era. Almost 25,000 biomedical journals are available globally for processing and publishing scientific content. The numbers of scientific journals are increasing annually by 3.5% worldwide.1 Electronic journals/magazines have more ‘reachability’ among the global community than paper communications. Publishing articles in journals have been in existence for more than 300 years, and their role is to provide a platform to communicate new findings of research.2 Author submissions are vital for any journal and it ‘gives life’ to the journal. The author submissions are based on each journal’s audience and their impact on the scientific community. The main objective of this editorial is to discuss about the measures of scientific journals’ credibility, which may enhance the current knowledge and facts to readers of Journal of Young Pharmacist.
