Abstract

The publication of scholarly journals and proceedings is an area of academic publishing with specific quality criteria. These publications are evaluated in accordance with the principles of academic ethics, research results, reviewing processes, dissemination and other things. Nowadays, with increasing emphasis on the need for open science and open Access in scholarly communication, publishers face new challenges in publishing, and scientists must be able to select the right journals for the articles. It is important for scholars and institutions to include scientific articles and journals in international databases. The databases also apply their own criteria when assessing journals. In view of these topical issues of scholarly communication, the main criteria of publishing quality were investigated. With these criteria, publishers can improve the quality of scholarly journals, and researchers choose the best journals for their articles.
