As readers of NursingWriting.com are familiar, a profusion of online open-access journals, many with dubious review, editing, and publishing practices and dependent on authors’ fees (rather than subscriptions) has created problems for researchers, students and clinicians.
Previously, a web site run by Jeffrey Beall (ScholarlyOA) as a volunteer effort outside his day job offered frank assessments of publishers and journals (though often not without controversy). That site was closed down earlier this year.
Now, however, the commercial publisher Cabells has developed a White List (good journals) and Black List (bad journals), available for a subscription fee.
