Predatory Open-Access Online Journals

With the start of the new year, it’s a good time to remind ourselves that the online open-access journal publishing world looks more like an American Wild West frontier town than the sober scholarly journal world of yesteryear. As librarian Jeffrey Beall has recently pointed out, new predatory journal scams include those in health sciences: http://scholarlyoa.com/2013/12/26/a-medical-publisher-with-some-problems/

Before considering submitting a manuscript to an online open-access journal, check around with colleagues and consult Beall’s list of “Potential, possible, or probable predatory scholarly open-access publishers”: http://scholarlyoa.com/publishers/
