Research Simplified – J-Gate, an answer to a Researcher’s Quest!

J-Gate has  55 Million+ Indexed Articles and covers 49,000+ Journals from over 13,000 Publishers.

Patience is one of the virtues that is required in abundance if you’re a researcher or a scientist. A typical day in the life of a researcher entails him/her rummaging online to find information. You find a surplus amount of information online but is that information reliable and relevant?

A research begins from choosing a topic to publishing your paper which is usually a long and iterative process. It can get dreadful when you don’t know where to start. This experience can be an unpleasant one when your study doesn’t get reliable backing. Wouldn’t it be nice if you could find all credible scholarly information on one platform?

J-Gate qualifies to be the world’s largest journal discovery platform, a one-stop solution for your scholarly research needs. It was established in the year 2001 and has been a researcher’s companion since its inception. J-Gate provides seamless access to millions of journal articles. It is simple, intuitive, and easy-to-use while providing users complete control over various search filters. It enables users to access content from a wide variety of publishers on a single platform and helps to discover more journal content, relevant to the research field.

Informatics Publishing Ltd., the parent company, was founded in the year 1980 with a focus on transforming the education space which did not have solutions to the problems in the domain. It has over the years remained true to its cause, developing and releasing solutions that cater to researchers, academicians, and scholars. Being observant of the changing landscape the company has adapted to stay ahead of the curve and provide their user base with quality services and products.

N V Sathyanarayana, the chairman, and managing director states that “J-Gate is focussed on facilitating research. Research is a time-consuming process and requires a single-minded focus on just acquiring research sources. J-Gate proves to be an ally as it allows them to focus purely on their research and not on struggling with research material. The sheer size of the database ensures that a researcher can find what they are looking for without any hassle. If the need arises, a researcher can also reach out to an author through J-Gate.”

J-Gate has been a boon for researchers. It was developed keeping in mind the hassle faced by researchers, during their research. Harshini Nadig is a Research and Development Associate at Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore. She shared her view about how J-Gate has made research easier for her: “J-Gate has a large collection of articles for reference. I found it easy to access, no complications and a host of helpful features to make my research easier. I found relevant articles in a few clicks, which would have otherwise taken me a couple of hours.”

J-Gate has  55 Million+ Indexed Articles (inclusive of 11 Million from Open access domain) and covers 49,000+ Journals (of which 24,800+ have full-text access) from over 13,000 Publishers. This number is continuously growing each day as more and more journal articles are being added. It started off as a researcher’s friend and continues to do so even after 16 years, since its formation. It has withstood the test of time and has adapted deftly according to the requirements of its users. Bringing in new features which makes life easier for a researcher, has always been on the agenda for J-Gate.

Recently, J-Gate has started indicating the SCImago citation index, making things a whole lot better. The SCImago Journal Ranking (SJR) is displayed along with the journal. For those who do not know what this means, SJR is a measure of the scientific influence of the journal. This is decided by gauging the number of citations it has received and how important the journals are from which the citations are being received. More the SJR more is the credibility. J-Gate has also started to indicate NAAS rating and H-Index which can also be referred as quality indicators. This valuable information would help researchers to identify journals where they would want to publish their articles and also refer to literature research.

Talking about the platform, Dr. H Anil Kumar, Librarian and Head NICMAN, IIM Ahmedabad said, “Discovery of content by authors is an excellent feature, it makes it very convenient and easy for the librarian to share resources”.

Dr. Bhojaraju Gunjal, Head of Central Library, NIT Rourkela was also impressed by the contact author feature, he said, “If the full-text article is not available, the user can reach out to the author by clicking on the author’s name. Our students are using this facility effectively, and authors are responding within 2-3 days of reaching out. This is an excellent feature.”

J-Gate also has a feature where one can set alerts on their favorite journals, in this way they can always be up-to-date. J-Gate is continuously evolving to meet the requirements of the academicians, researchers, and scholars. Newer features are constantly being introduced. J-Gate is striving to make research easy for its users, constant updates and new features are just the cherries on top of the icing compared to how valuable and resourceful an asset J-Gate actually is.
