Can you tell us which university made the proposal and going to blacklisted the journals?
Dear Mr. Beall, thank you for the great effort you put in identifying bogus journals and editors. I think all sincere scientists are very cautious in which journals they publish. We all build our reputation very hard over the years to let ourselves ruin all that by publishing in bogus journals.
I also wanted to ask about Medjaden. I was approached by them 2 years ago to act as senior editor/academic advisor. The idea was to pre-edit and advise on data and manuscripts before they are submitted by the authors. Medjadjen is not a publisher. I agreed at the time but they never sent me any manuscripts to edit. Now I am invited to continue this appointment and am currently considering it. I have not noticed anything wrong with Medjaden, simply because I have not had any experience as an editor/advisor.
I generally limit my work to open-access journals and publishers. It appears this journal is not open-access. I have not analyzed it.
I am not familiar with this company.
R.I.P to Meta research
What are your views on the International Journal of Computer Science and Information Security (IJCSIS)? It seems pretty solid as it is associated with Thomson Reuters and DOAJ although their website is not impressive. I also checked out their reviewers most of them seem genuine. I am thinking of publishing a paper. Could you shed some light on this? Thanks.
I think this is a very low quality journal, and I strongly recommend you avoid it. It is not a solid journal, and don’t believe anything it says on its website about where it’s indexed. This journal is included on my list, and it serves as a means for the publisher to make easy money from scholarly authors.
If all you care about is Scopus indexing, then don’t let me stop you. Go ahead and submit your work to the journal. Merry Christmas too.
My God! I published an article in this journal ALS in the year 2000. If I am not mistaken I paid 5000 pesos processing and addition of 8000 was given before printing. Since I want to be promoted as full professor l filed a loan in the university cooperative just to pay the amount to dr gruezo. This was the time when the journal is a non ISI listed.

Sir what about the “Inderscience Publishers”
This is a subscription publisher (not an open-access publisher). I generally limit my work to OA publishers and journals.
Merry Christmas to all, please I would like to know if the International Journal of social forestry is predatory journal.
It is not. This journal is not on my list.
We do not know the circumstances under which the editor wrote referenced e-mail… May be he already collected few reviews for the manuscript and needed another opinion.. It is not right to draw any conclusions out of it…
Good Morning Mr. Jeffrey Beall
Could you please inform me about the World Academy of Science,Engineering and Technology WASET conference that is going to be held in Prague 23-24 //2017 is it a true or Fake??
and if the Registration fees were paid can one have a refund to stop the whole issue?
Yes, this is a very low-quality conference organizer. Many consider it fake. I don’t know if they will give you a refund or not. With these predatory businesses, often if they get your money, they never return it.
Thank you very much sir for your reply .
I received an email from this journal ”Advances in Social Sciences Research Journal”, saying that they have an interest in my papers!
May i know whether this journal is a fake one?
Getting the spam from the "Scientificliterature" scammers at the moment:
<i>The Ophthalmology and Ophthalmic Surgery Invites for Editorial Board Membership</i>.
<blockquote>Our company will support the new encroachment oh high eminence research articles through the open access policy. Our company is a non-revenue scientific publishing association which circulates high quality, peer-reviewed journals and formulates them easy to get too explicitly to all the learners, annals, academic persons and readers from corner to corner of the world.</blockquote>
<a href="http://scientificliterature.org/open-access.html" rel="nofollow">Their explanation of "Open Access"</a> seems to have gone through more cycles of Google Translate than the rest:
blockquote>The Open Access system works as; firstly the author original version will submitted to the publisher followed by the peer review process and returns the reviewer annotations. The publisher will send the annotations to the author and he/she will edit the manuscript. Accepted version will be published on the journal website. Readers, scholars, researches, professors, etc. can download, copy, read, search, print and link the PDF/Full text of the required article via internet.
Open Access eradicates subscriptions/payments, pay-per-view. We can crawl the manuscript title/journal name for indexing in the search engines like google, yahoo and Bing, etc. The usage is designed for the legitimate perseverance, without commercial, permitted, or methodological barriers. Open Access is free of cost but not allowed to patent of certifying limitations.
Open Access is most within the interest of analysis endowments associated employers that an increasing range of them round the world remain introducing OA policies that need their funded researchers to produce Open Access to their work. The major caricature, says that the scientific community transmits out peer review/analysis a foremost portion of academic publication for free, up till now subscription-journal editors burden billions of dollars each year.
The Open Access manuscripts are high in quality assurance and good scientific literature. They inspire academics/scholarship beneficiaries to publish their effort agreeing to the moralities of the open access standard. Open Access supports to increase the citation/reference rates, endorses global collaboration, author recalls manipulation privileges, assistances for cardinal/digital manuscript and longtime accessibility of the research articles/manuscripts.
