“I have a little list”: Beall Expands to Four Lists

For over half a decade librarian Jeffrey Beall has scrutinized on-line open-access publishers and publications, calling out those that he has evaluated as “probably predatory” in his updated list.

Subsequently, Beall has developed four lists (which he updates annually):

  • Predatory publishers
  • Predatory stand-alone journals
  • Misleading impact metrics companies
  • Hijacked journals

It’s time for Beall’s annual update, which includes distressing statistics on the growth of unscrupulous publishers and others: https://scholarlyoa.com/2017/01/03/bealls-list-of-predatory-publishers-2017/
