Giro alla lista: J. Beall ha condotto uno studio su nove
editori che si spacciano per OA ma risultano del tutto
inaffidabili (oltre che non trasparenti).
Buon lavoro a tutti

[Re-posted from Andrew K. Ho, "Digital & Scholarly"]

Jeffrey Beall has written a review on nine "predatory"
open access
scholarly publishers in the Charleston Advisor.

>From the critical evaluation section of the review:

"These publishers are predatory because their mission is
not to
promote, preserve, and make available scholarship;
instead, their
mission is to exploit the author-pays, Open-Access model
for their own
profit. They work by spamming scholarly e-mail lists, with
calls for
papers and invitations to serve on nominal editorial
boards. If you
subscribe to any professional e-mail lists, you likely
have received
some of these solicitations. Also, these publishers
typically provide
little or no peer-review. In fact, in most cases, their
peer review
process is a fa=E7ade. None of these publishers mentions
preservation. Indeed, any of these publishers could
disappear at a
moment's notice, resulting in the loss of its content..."
