Predatory Journals, Peer Review, and Education Research
Beall, Jeffrey
New Horizons in Adult Education & Human Resource Development, v29 n1 p54-58 Win 2017
This commentary examines the problem of predatory journals, low-quality open-access journals that seek to earn revenue from scholarly authors without following scholarly publishing best practices. Seeking to accept as many papers as possible, they typically do not perform a standard peer review, leading to the publication of improperly vetted research. Some predatory journals repeatedly use templates as their peer review reports. Related scams also victimize education researchers.
