Predatory Publishing

Have you received an invitation to publish in a particular journal that you are unfamiliar with? Read this first!

Journal quality is not soley determined by impact factor and number of times cited. Those numbers can be gamed and as large multinational publishers start purchasing open access journals the waters have become really murky. The investigative article Who's Afraid of Peer Review explains in more detail.

Where to Publish?

  • Digital Commons Network
    The Digital Commons Network brings together free, full-text scholarly articles from hundreds of universities and colleges worldwide.
  • JournalRate
    Journal Rate is a searchable database of thousands of academic journals helping researchers in all fields find the appropriate journal to submit their research to.
  • Directory of Open Access Journals
    DOAJ defines open access journals as journals that "use a funding model that does not charge readers or their institutions for access." While this can be a useful listing, it is not a guarantee. Predatory publishers do slip through the cracks. Ask questions, be vigilant.

Searching Dissertations

  • Dissertation Abstracts (ProQuest Dissertations & Theses)
    Index to doctoral dissertations and master's theses from North America and Europe. Dissertations and Theses (OhioLINK) - see Electronic Theses and Dissertations Center.
  • Networked Digital Library of Theses and Dissertations
    International organization dedicated to promoting the adoption, creation, use, dissemination, and preservation of electronic theses and dissertations (ETDs). We support electronic publishing and open access to scholarship in order to enhance the sharing of knowledge worldwide.
