LIST OF STANDALONE JOURNALS

Potential, possible, or probable predatory scholarly open-access journals

This is a list of questionable, scholarly open-access journals. We recommend that scholars read the available reviews, assessments and descriptions provided here, and then decide for themselves whether they want to submit articles, serve as editors or on editorial boards.  The criteria for determining predatory journals are here.

We hope that tenure and promotion committees can also decide for themselves how importantly or not to rate articles published in these journals in the context of their own institutional standards and/or geo-cultural locus.  We emphasize that journals change in their business and editorial practices over time. This list is kept up-to-date to the best extent possible but may not reflect sudden, unreported, or unknown enhancements

[...] 受邀出席Entomology-2013大会的科学家以为他们将参加一个知名的昆虫研究会议,他们没有留意到业内认可的昆虫会议其实全称是Entomology 2013,没有连字符。这些科学家们进入的是一个伪学术的平行宇宙,在这个宇宙里,许多学术刊物和会议名字都与知名的刊物和会议几乎完全相同。在像素驱动的信息经济时代,创建一个刊物是如此的容易,假冒的学术期刊数量正以惊人的速度增长。斯坦福大学医学院院长Steven Goodman称这种现象为“开放获取的阴暗面”。科罗拉多大学研究员Jeffrey Beall维护了一个伪学术期刊名单,2010年名单创建时,只列入了20个刊物,今天它的数量已增加到了超过4000个。Beall曾经收到大量请求他向新刊物递交论文或加入编辑委员会的电子邮件,但此类的邮件大多含有语法错误,引起了他的警惕,在研究了这些刊物的网站之后他确信出版商和期刊都十分可疑,他将他们称为“掠夺性开放期刊出版商”。 [...]

Lógicamente esto es un proxy y no un argumento válido porque constituye una falacia de autoridad descartar un argumento por solo “de donde viene”, pero en estos casos ahorra -muchísimo- tiempo. Por mi parte, descarto todo lo que venga del Journal of Cosmology con un rictus de desprecio que hace que Margaret Tatcher se vea como un gatito abrazable (así y todo, cadáver como es). Si no quieren tener que aprender por experiencia de dónde salen las publicaciones basura, Jeffrey Beal de  Scholarly Open Access se tomó el laburito de armar esta lista de revistas y publishers truchos o muy posiblemente truchos.
