Essential Steps for Algerian Researcher to Target ISI Journals

Tayeb Aissaoui


Abstract: One of the most potent factors widely used in judging the quality of academic institutions is publication. High impact journals are targeted by scientific research groups around the globe by improving the quality of their work. Clearly, researchers perform investigations to address scientific, economic and even political institutions through writing and publishing. Mastering the skills and mechanism of writing scientific article from idea to publication is highly required especially for universities that witness poor research performance. Algerian universities are among the academic institutions that attempt to reach the goal of publishing in high impact journals. This article comes to encourage Algerian researchers to target high quality journals and highlights the necessary steps toward achieving this target. In this paper, the performance of Algerian scientific community was discussed. The importance of publication by answering some essential questions was reported. Moreover, the definition of Impact Factor (IF), Institute for Scientific Information (ISI) and Journal Citation Report (JCR) were stated. Additionally, skills of writing a scientific article and submission process were highlighted. At the early stage of this research, there were few research papers available in the literature dealing and analyzing scientific research activities in Algeria. Further investigations and practical activities such as workshops on how to write scientific article are highly recommended. This paper targets in particular science and engineering researchers. However, other researchers could benefit from it general ideas.
