Q: Could you please tell me if Journal of Clinical and Diagnostic Research (JCDR) is indexed in Web of Science (WoS)?
The ISNN (online) number is 0973-709X.
Yes, JCDR is indexed in WoS’ Master Journal List (MJL). It is indexed in the Emerging Sources Citation Index (ESCI), which according to Clarivate, the owner of the MJL, “contains quality publications, selected by our expert in-house editors for editorial rigor and best practice at a journal level.” You may search for it yourself using either the journal name or the ISSN on the MJL home page here. When we searched, it showed up as the very first result.
The online version of the journal can also be found on Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ) here. However, it has been discontinued in Scopus as of 2018 [as you can see here] and also no longer participates in PubMed Central (PMC) [as you can see here]. That notwithstanding, based on a few other checks, it seems to be a legitimate journal – in case you are considering submitting to it.
