BIOL 5505A Global Challenges for the Health Services Professional: Predatory Publishing

What is Predatory Publishing?


Predatory or deceptive publishing are terms describing publishers or entities that exploit authors by charging publication fees (commonly known as article processing charges) yet don't deliver on their promise of the editorial and publishing services (such as peer review) that are associated with legitimate publishers. Also, the quality of the articles is questionable as peer review a hallmark of all scholarly publishing is not rigorously enforced, resulting in wrong or totally manipulated data.
