Lots of advertising claims more than is delivered. I would like my neurologist to have access to all useful science, no matter how published. When it comes to peer review I am more concerned about it inhibiting the flow of new ideas, something I call paradigm protection..
I used to consult with US DOE OSTI and we published thousands of research reports a year. None were peer reviewed but many were valuable.
Happy New Year 2017,
Thank you so much for your fully valued notifications.
happy new year 2017 and thank you for uour precious work.
Many journals in the list are in Scopus or ESCI (Thomson Reuters) indexed. At this stage, is it a good decision to submit those journals ?
The purpose of my list is to recommend that you NOT submit to the publishers/journals on the list.
Thank you Sir for this information. I personally will be on the look out for such WASET conferences. Please keep up the good work!

Waiting for your reply please.
I just got one for a geology journal (not my field), referring to a conference talk that I had nothing to do with. It was “from” Barbara Long”, Address of Headquarter: 616 Corporate Way, Suite 2-4876 Valley Cottage, NY 10989, USA TEL: 1-323-9847526, 323-410-1082, 607-4416220 FAX: 1-323-9847374, 323-908-0457
Since they are giving telephone numbers, maybe someone from the computer end of things should set up a script to phone them nonstop — taste of their own medicine.
This journal, <em>Indian Journal of Science and Technology</em>, is from a publisher called Indian Society for Education and Environment (ISEE). I have this publisher included on my list <a href="https://scholarlyoa.com/publishers/" target="_blank">here </a>and recommend against submitting any papers to it.
Yes. The publisher is called “Scientific Federation.” It’s neither. It is on my list. I recommend you find a better journal from an authentic publisher and avoid this one like the plague.

You have a point. This is one of the directions that this can go. However, I think “academic integrity and academic rigour” can be judged by content. One can find twaddle in every journal under the sun. Some even believe it for a long time. Then there are Nobel-prize winning works in obscure journals (though none of them, at least so far, in predatory ones). It is, of course, reasonable to anticipate that questionable work will have a better chance of being published in a “lesser journal” (predatory or not), and maybe the pay-to-dump predatory journals makes it easier for these kinds of people to get away with it.
Benjamin Franklin wrote to an editor on one of his papers: “If my hypothesis is not the truth, it is at least naked; for I have not with some of our learned moderns disguis’d my nonsense in Greek, cloth’d it in algebra or adorned it with fluxions.”
What we see now has happened many times before in the past. There is nothing new under the sun. At the end of the day, it is important to judge a work by what it is, not by the journal it appears in or the institution or country it comes from or whatever other trivializing criteria we prefer.”
Dear Wayne Dawson,
I found myself spending several hours on this website and among all ideas I came across, this stamtent of yours “At the end of the day, it is important to judge a work by what it is, not by the journal it appears in or the institution or country it comes from or whatever other trivializing criteria we prefer” did make me feel a sense of balanced judgement. I am really glad for the comment as it really made my day. I have read huge amount of the papers listed as predatory publishers and I did find cool sciences being done and also not properly done stuff. We need not to forget the history behind the invention Mac computers and Microsoft.
Is International Journal of Immunology a predatory journal please?
If you are referring to the journal with this title published by Science Publishing Group, then yes.
Dear prof, Is american journal of plant nutrition and fertilizer technology predatory journal pleas?
This journal is from Science Alert, a publisher on my list. I recommend against sending papers to all Science Alert journals.
Scopus has also provided an ID for researchers and in many cases, researchers’ articles maintain different IDs but Scopus team will merge them if authors inform them. This article ID like ORCHID can be used for author identification but has nothing to do for publishers to receive credit.
One thing ResearcherID does that ORCID doesn’t do (yet?) is provide a citation analysis for a researcher. I would say that the best solution for the moment would be for Clarivate Analytics to start curating their database and delete such spam accounts. Should not be too difficult to search for accounts like that “search words could be “journal”, “reviews”, “essays”, “international”, etc).
