List of potential predatory publishers/journals
For a list of identified predatory publishers/journals, refer to:
- Beall's list
- Retraction watch
- Cabell's blacklist
- DOAJ blacklist
Jeffrey Beall, a former librarian, collated a list of potential and possible predatory scholarly open access journals. However, this list was last updated in 2017. Researchers could refer this archived list to find out if the journal/publisher is blacklisted.
The list of possible predatory publishers was based on Beall's opinion and it has been continued to be widely used.
Retraction Watch is a good resource with updated news related to predatory publishing.It tracks latest news and incidents of predatory publishing, plagiarsim, falsified data and peer-review scandals.
