[…] Swiss publishing business Frontiers was placed by the US librarian Jeffrey Beall on his well-known and hotly disputed list as “potential, possible or probable predatory […]
[…] afterlife and clairvoyance and autism-causing bread, Frontiers in Public Health waved through a paper promoting chemtrail conspiracies. Even Segev’s own beautiful Frontiers in Neuroscience showed worrisome peer review deficiencies […]
Thanks, this is helpful.
Dear Prof Beall,
I came across this advertisement calling for paper submisssion.
The African Network of Scientific and Technological Institutions (ANSTI) is pleased to announce call for papers on the theme Mobilising science and innovation for achieving the SDGs in Africa for publication in the African Journal of Science and Technology(AJST). http://www.ajol.info/index.php/ajst
When I visited the journal link, I found out that the last issue was published 10 years ago. Can you assist if it is a good one.
Is African Journal of Science and Technology a good journal. It is not in your list, but the last issue published was 10 years ago and now they are inviting people to submit manuscripts.
I found the 2013 volume <a href="http://www.ansti.org/index.php/documents/ansti-journals" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">here</a>. This journal is not on my list. I cannot say whether this is a good journal or not, just that it doesn't meet the criteria as a predatory journal at this time.
Still, it's clear that this journal has problems with its internet presence. It may chiefly be a print journal. You probably will want to find a stronger journal in your field to publish your work in.
Thanks for great work and your commitment in helping scientists and researchers.
What do the publishers have to say about this?
I haven’t heard any response from them, but I hope they respond with retractions.
Thank you very much
[…] Nwagwu’s piece has been strenuously criticized by Jeffrey Beall for its significant errors, unattributed text and tables that match text and tables from […]
is International Research journal of finance economics a predatory journal?
I think you mean the <em>International Research Journal of Finance and Economics</em>, no? I have this journal included on my list <a href="https://scholarlyoa.com/individual-journals/" target="_blank">here</a>. I strongly recommend you <strong>not </strong>send any papers to this journal.
And received another one today:
We still haven’t been able to connect so I though I would go ahead and send you a free subscription to the journal so you can take a look at some of our recently published papers. It may be accessed with the below login credentials. Could you please get back to me at your earliest convenience regarding the followup or review article?

As I have seen, the domain sgem (despite pointing to beautiful VIENNA(Austria’s Capital) and the k.&.k. Imperial is registrated for a Bulgarian person (which is positively unthinkable if it was linked to a correct VIENNA CONGRESS ORGANISATION)! Keep away….
The address of the American Research Institute of Policy Development has now changed. For a great laugh, google the new address and switch to street view. This pleasant 2-bedroom shanty is the ARIPD global headquarters…
And the website is still filled with plagiarized passages. The opening “research” program passage is lifted word-for-word from the website globalissues.org (possibly from the same scammers?)
Curtis and Wyss appears to be a total scam. I signed up for a conference and they just fell off the face of the earth. In the process of reporting them to authorities
yes – I think this is a scam. I am in the process of reporting Cutis and Wyss to local authorities.
Adding to what others said about PLoS One’s peer review- I had a paper rejected by the journal (in my opinion it was the wrong decision but this has nothing to do with the current discussion). Maybe it’s an exception but you can’t say they’d publish anything….
A reader of my site pointed me towards this. J. Marvin Herndon, author of this fascinating coal ash paper posted parts of his communications with Frederick Fenter of Frontiers here: http://www.nuclearplanet.com/JMH%20Biography.html
It seems the 2nd reviewer originally recommended rejection, but this being Frontiers…
Unfortunately, Mr. Herdon doesn’t share the reviewers’ reports with us, they would have been more useful then his own bizarre letter to Fenter.
