When a OA publisher collects copyright, it means no other publisher has the right to republish the paper. That is all about this. However, anyone can download the paper, redistribute it under no cost as long as they cite the paper appropriately.
Which statement made by your organization do you claim is wrong? Presumably all of the positive and invented ones…
Mr. Velraj, do you realize that you have listed a tax guide for the country of Zimbabwe as one of your members?
That’s quite useful for Zimbabweans who owe taxes, but I hardly see how that would help the broader scientific community.
The complainant does make the valid point that at least one journal on the <a href="http://iosrd.org/documents/common/iosrd-conference-registration-form.xls" rel="nofollow">Expensive List 1 of targeted journals</a> (US$700 or 46000 R) is a bogus, hijacked journal (the "Transylvanian Review"). Making it the only journal on the list in which the IOSRD conferences can actually be sure of publishing something (the "Australian journal of structural engineering" is not so amenable to negotiation).
It is almost as if scamference organisers read ScholarlyOA to see <a href="https://twitter.com/jeffrey_beall/status/670635396364181504" rel="nofollow">which journals have been hijacked</a>, and are thus suitable to be offered to credulous attendees as one of the potential outlets for their paper. Oddly enough, List 1 is in roughly alphabetical order, <b>except</b> Transylvanian Review, almost as if the IOSRD person who compiled the spreadsheet <b>knew</b> it was bogus, and slipped in the name as #28 (between "Journal of architectural engineering" and "Journal of Medical Imaging and Health Informatics") in the hope that it wouldn't be noticed.
Then there are the seven List-2 journals, available at US$150 or 5000 R; they are supposedly on the Anna University Annexure-II whitelist, but might as well have been copied from Beall's List. The author has the choice on which of them will print his / her article. There is not much difference between them in levels of fraudulence.
The four journals on List-3 come with the price-tag of US$210 or 7000 R. Also on the Anna University Annexure-II whitelist. The higher price, I guess, is because they claim to be ISI / Web-of-Science indexed. All scammy.
List-4 are the IOSRD's own International Journals. Only 256 of them at the time the spreadsheet was compiled. If your paper doesn't fit any of the available receptacles, no matter, the IOSRD will create a new one.
They are, however, "ISI and Scopus Under processing, Impact Factor, Doi, Cros Ref, Google Scholar" indexed!

Oddly enough, their websites and e-addresses all turn out to be skuzzy on-line pharmacies pimping cheap v1@gra and c1al1s.
Then there is the whole cadre of spambots with Drupaler.org spam-addresses and names from bad porn movies: Eula Bridges, Kimberly Villarreal, Brittney Guy, Prof. Missy Castro, Chelsea Flowers,…
So manuscripts and conference abstracts submitted to IOSRD will be carefully reviewed by spambots and potency-pill scammers. Good to know!
Are those automatic copyright transfer are legally binding on authors? Can anybody please clarify?
Hi, This journal tries to confuse authors by listing a new criteria (Thomson Reuters ID), which is just a researcher ID (not indexing). Also, I believe the journal is not in your list. We have received a couple of spoofed emails from this journal using a Fake conference system (Easychair.com rather than Easychair.org). The email was a carbon copy of my own email which I sent to accepted authors in the conference (except with the name of this journal added) http://www.astesj.com/about-journal/indexing/
Thank you for this website. I began to smell a rat when I checked their odd facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/aripd.org. The smell became unbearable when I learned that I had to pay a ‘processing fee’ to a person in Bangladesh via the money transfer service ‘western union’ (often used in scams). But there are, indeed, many other red herrings. The reason why they are often not identified as such is that the very concept of ‘predatory journal’ is unfamiliar to many people. If it hadn’t been for this website, I might, therefore, have payed the fee anyway. But it makes perfect sense: if the need of love, the want of money or even the urge to help people are exploited, why then, would the need to publish not be exploited? It’s just another niche in the scam market. What a shame that legitimate scholars who are listed as ‘editors’ of these journals can, seemingly, not prevent the people behind it from abusing their name and reputation.
I believe that is not accurate. The right to download a paper and redistribute it would have to granted by the copyright holder — it is not an automatic right. In the U.S. we have a policy of fair use, but what you have described goes well beyond fair use. However, it is possible that some of the countries in which these journal operate do not abide by international copyright conventions….
Is the International Journal of Science Education from Taylor and Francis an OK journal?
[…] Jeffrey Beall maintains a comprehensive list of such publication […]
This journal is not on my list at this time.
Neither journal is on my list at this time.
It looks fishy.
Be careful, the journal coverage has been discontinued from Scopus.

“Some OA publishers do not collect copyright and author(s) may publish the work with another possibly more reputable publisher.”
That is not what you wrote — you referred to an OA publisher that “collects” copyright.
“…authors cannot publish the same version elsewhere…”
We seem to be on different planets. On my planet you wrote, and I quote, “When a OA publisher collects copyright …anyone can download the paper, redistribute it under no cost so long as they cite the paper appropriately.”
On your planet you have completely changed the issue. You were not making a claim about authors. You were not making a claim about other versions of an article. You made a claim about “anyone” copying a published article. Your claim was wrong.
[…] happened when Margaret Ray submitted high school students’ essays to some likely predatory journals? (Jeffrey Beall, Scholarly Open […]
Thanks. In our department, they don’t check editorial-ship against predatory journals, so it wouldn’t “hurt” my CV. Possibly it might if I tried to move. And then there’s the aspect that it helps bad people.
The real litmus test was reaching out to someone I know in the editor list (it didn’t impact good or bad her tenure package), but she said they were annoying and constantly spam you.
[…] Entretanto, voltando à questão do mito de que as revistas de “acesso aberto” não demandam a entrega de direitos intelectuais dos autores dos artigos que puiblicam, o professor Jeffrey Beall, responsável entre outras contribuições pela “Beall´s List” de editoras e revistas predatórias, acaba de demonstrar que isto não é verdade. Segundo o que o professor Beall apurou a maioria das revistas de acesso aberto mantidas por editoras predatórias demandam sim que os autores abram mão de seus direitos de propriedade intelectual, em que pese o pagamento de taxas nem sempre módicas para publicar artigos científicos (Aqui!). […]
I think JATIT now publishing only two issues and i know that that journal rejected so many paper and the acceptance talk longer time more than two month to be accepted. So i wish if you remove it from your list.
