This blog post aims to provide a list of Scopus indexed Q1 journals.

About Scopus and Journal Quartile: Scopus is a citation database that covers nearly 35000 peer-reviewed journals in top-level subject fields: life sciences, social sciences, physical sciences, and health sciences. The set of journals has been divided into four quartiles: Q1, Q2, Q3, and Q4 based on the journals’ ranking. Q1 is occupied by the top 25% of journals in the list.

We visited the official website of Scopus and found that there are 8260 Q1 journals in the Scopus list. The top 20 Q1 journals are listed below. However, researchers can download the complete Q1 Scopus journals list from the link provided below.
