Research and Development is an essential activity in Society for technology, industrial, and social progress. Based on the historical review, higher education institutions focus on basic, conceptual, explorative, empirical, and analytical research methods whereas industries focus on new products and new processes development. It is also known that the end of every piece of research of HEIs and Research Institutions is the scholarly publication and having the copyright of such basic or conceptual invention/innovation whereas the end of every piece of research of industries is acquiring a patent in inventor/company name. In this paper, based on a survey on closed and open access scholarly publications, a new Scholarly Publication based Research Journals Classification model is proposed by defining an ideal scholarly publication process, analysing scholarly publication process, determining necessary and sufficient conditions to call an article as Scholarly article, identifying and analysing various factors affecting Journal classification, and developing a new model called “Researcher centric Scholarly Journals grading”. The developed model of journal classification is compared with existing Journal grading models and some suggestions made on scholarly publications and citations from different stakeholders’ points of view.
