Start-up Publisher Lists 262 New Journals

Journal of Menstrual Cycle

The homepage of the Journal of Menstrual Cycle, one of 262 journals published by Mehta Press.

Mehta Press, based in Rajkot, Gujarat, India, is a brand-new publisher of online scholarly journals. The publisher currently lists 262 journals (see titles below), but only one, Current Chemical Research, has any content. However, it only has abstracts; I cannot access the actual articles. It is unclear if accepted articles will be made open access. The publisher does state that authors must sign over copyright of their accepted articles. Also, it is unclear if there will be author fees charged. In its author guidelines, the publisher states, “Publication, 100 e-reprints and 25 printed reprints are totally free of cost.” By “publication,” does the publisher mean author fee? Finally, one notable thing about this publisher is the strikingly original titles and journal scopes that some of its journals have. My favorite is Journal of  Teeth.

    I like Journal of Menstrual Cycle better ;)

  2. Paula Callan says:

    None of the journals published by Mehta Press are open access. All 262 titles are priced at $1200 p.a. for print-only and $1600 for print and electronic. There are no article processing fees so I think these journal fall into the ‘write-only’ category (i.e.submissions but no readers).
