Open Access Publishers to Avoid

Some open access scholarly publishers operate under questionable practices - for example with minimal or no peer review, charging fees after accepting papers, using editor's names without permission. [1]

If in doubt about the quality of a journal, check if it is a member of the Open Access Scholarly Publishers Association or if it is listed in Ebscohost: Serials Directory  or the Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ) 

For a list of things to look for when assessing journal quality - both positive and negative - see Open Access Journal Quality Indicators at the Grand Valley State University.
