FYI: More on Predatory Publishers

The Scientist published a piece today on Predatory Publishing, warning that the business practices of some publishers are making it more difficult to find and filter research of value. Jeffrey Beall, meta-data librarian at the Auraria Library cautions against exploitive journals that are publishing “pseudoscientific articles that outwardly appear legitimate but whose methodologies are unsound” and without benefit of the peer review process.
