Blacklist of academic publishers nears release

Cabell's International specializes in rating academic publications and supplies (for a fee) information and ratings of academic journals. A news report in Nature states that this Texas firm "will launch its own list of predatory journals: those that deceive their authors or readers, for example by charging fees to publish papers without conducting peer review." It might make the list freely available "eventually." "White lists" such as's "list of reputable titles" are more common than such blacklists. It would be interesting to have a list not only of the names of flaky journals, but also of their editors.

  1. It's interesting that many of the bloggers your tips helped to clarify a few things for me as well as giving.. very specific nice content. And tell people specific ways to live their lives.Sometimes you just have to yell at people and give them a good shake to get your point across.
