Thank you. This was most helpful. K

Okay, thanks. I had not heard of this journal before. I analyzed it and added it to my list <a href="http://www.ijcasonline.com/" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">here</a>. I recommend that you not send any papers to this journal. Thank you for bringing it to my attention.
OK, they peer review, but they charge $1,350 to publish. How can this be ethical?
As an editor of polish scientific journal (Advances in Medical Sciences) I can not interfere. Some of above-mentioned journals do not exist. And some have changed the publishing house (i.e. Folia Neuropathologica published currently by Termedia). It would unfair to judge all of those journals as predatory. Indeed the fake publishing houses existed but the did not stand the competition on the market. Small societies are often unaware of predatory marketing and practices of those publishing houses and are deceived by the vision of quick development and fake IF increse.
Dear Mr Beall,
Would you mind to help me to check whether “Journal of Informatics and Mathematical Sciences” is a predatory journal or not?
I have checked in your list, it is not a standalone journal and the publisher is also not in your list.
The publisher is RGN publications.Thank you
Perfectly good journals from Hyderabad? I cannot think of any ‘good’ journals from Hyderabad based publishers. Outsourced publishing work may be done cheaply in Hyderabad and other places in India due to cheap labour for sure.
Fake… Plagarized paper.
He is a big —–
Chris, the journal is an Open Access journal, which means that once published, anyone in the world can freely view the full text of the article. As access is open, the publisher does not make money off of subscribers, so must recoup its costs by charging the authors a publication fee (also known as an article processing charge). $1,350 per article is within the usual range for this kind of fee, though obviously it differs considerably between journals.
It can (and has) been argued these article processing charges are too high, either because of the amount of profit they generate or because they are paying for un-needed services offered by the publisher. However publishers are within their rights to charge what they feel is appropriate, and authors are within their rights to not submit to journals that charge, so it is far from clear that this is unethical. Inefficient perhaps, though that is also a matter of debate.
MEDICINE’s impact factor has indeed declined dramatically, it is now about 1.2. I wonder what is your predictions as to the journal’s future. Will it further decline? Is there a chance for reconsideration of the editorial’s policy?

Dear Dr. Cornell,
My last email must have reached you at a bad time so I am following up. If you are not the right person to talk to about this please let me know or feel free to forward this email.

Dear Dr. Cornell,
I hope this email finds you well. My colleague Milena asked if I could get in touch with you about a paper you authored titled Men and antiretroviral therapy in Africa: our blind spot.. Firstly thank you for taking the time to publish this, it was an interesting read. I am hoping to have the opportunity to discuss having a short followup or perhaps a review article published in one of the next issues of the Internal Medicine Review. I think our readers could be interested in a paper with information from any continued research or new data since this was published. It would not have to be a long article, but if you don’t have time for this perhaps you could also reach out to the co-authors or one of your students to collaborate.
If you have moved on from this line of research I am certainly interested in knowing more about your current projects; perhaps there is the potential for an article that would fit our journal. If you have any questions about whether or not a certain subject fits our scope I can put you in contact with Dr. Chadwick Prodromos from our editorial board.
Could you please let me know your thoughts on this?

Would you contact the authors of Men and antiretroviral therapy in Africa: our blind spot. about possibly preparing something for the next issue? Or possibly September? Let me know if you can’t find the article and I will send it.
How do I ensure that it will not be in your list after I published in that journal?

Thank you for posting and commenting on this checklist criteria that as everything else are useful guidelines to better decide who we send our proposals to or not. Could you please give me your opinion on this one? http://www.iatefl.org/annual-conference/glasgow-2017 and where can I find most reliable conference in the field of EFL/ESOL/TEFL/ESL? I receive many invitations as spam mails. Thanks,
There is no insurance against this.
My advice would be to have a close look at the conference/organizer website and count how many of the criteria on my list apply.
You should be pleasantly surprised how few apply to them.
Dear Mr. Beall
What about Journal of Internationai Environmental Application and Science. In that journal in 2013 I had published papers. Does this journal in 2013 was legitimate.
++Impact score for each paper ++
This model can be more effective than Impact factor by Thomson Reuters.Myself is proposing it for consideration of Scientific Community. Number of citations to a paper in current year/number of years from the publication date of that article..
