Predatory publishers list

A list of questionable, scholarly, open-access publishers, also known as “predatory publishers” is listed here: www.scholarlyoa.com is run by Mr. Jeffrey Beall, a librarian at Auraria Library, University of Colorado Denver.

The list this year includes 923 publishers, an increase of 230 over last year. Numerous “expert” witnesses have taken left hooks and straight jabs to their reputations for publishing in these kinds of journals, which often have no peer review, no identifiable editor. They do, however, often feature frequent use of the word “International”.
