The Genesis of This Blog

This blog is an offshoot of Forensic Science, Statistics & the Law. Two of the most popular postings were lists of flaky academic journals and conferences and correspondence with some of them. The criteria for inclusion on the lists are unsolicited email to me, indications of shady practices or possible incompetence in the subject areas, and reports on other websites such as Beall's list. The burgeoning length of the lists and supporting information made them unwieldy, so I decided they merited separate blogs that could be more readily updated and searched.  (21 Dec. 2016)
