The Volkskrant recently published an article exposing fraudulent publishers who deceptively offer open access publishing. These publishers charge open access fees without offering the editorial services or peer reviews.
This type of fraud is more commonly known as ‘predatory open access’. You can recognize these types of publishers by their aggressive marketing strategies and spam emails.
What can you do to verify whether a publisher is reliable?
