The International Journal of Management Research and Review (IJMRR) is typical of the many low-quality and deceptive megajournals that are started up in India every week.
This one stands out, however, for opening up a window into its review process, something that few predatory publishers do. On its “Reviewer Report” page, the journal displays this web form that reviewers fill out when submitting their peer reviews:
As you can see, all the reviewer has to do is enter his name and the article title. Then he selects radio buttons (🔘) for Best, Good or Poor for four questions, and Yes or No for the other one. Finally, the reviewer enters a numerical value to answer the ungrammatical prompt, “How Much Score Get This Title (1-10).”
The form does not lend itself to, and probably prevents, a proper and legitimate peer review.
This is a management journal, yet it is a superb example of how not to run a business. The journal falsely proclaims it has an impact factor (0.381), and the editor-in-chief and the co-editor are listed without any affiliations:
Finally, if you’re looking for a cheap place to publish, this journal has among the lowest article processing charges I’ve seen:
I don’t know how a journal could be sustained on such a small income. I don’t expect this journal to last long and am sure its article content will likely disappear from the internet when the owner departs or gets bored with this, for the journal has no digital preservation plans, another example of bad management.
