Cabells’ Predatory Reports surpass 15,000 individual predatory journal entries -

Cabells’ Predatory Reports database recently surpassed 15,000 individual predatory journal entries. This represents a nearly fourfold increase in the number of predatory journals listed since the resource launched in 2017 with 4,000 titles, showing consistent growth to keep pace with the ever-expanding universe of predatory publishing operators.

Cabells’ team of journal evaluation experts spearhead the maintenance and expansion of Predatory Reports by evaluating suspected journals against more than 70 behaviours indicative of deceptive publishing practices. Predatory Reports exposes deceitful publishing outlets to help stakeholders in academia protect research, funding, and reputations by recognizing and avoiding these exploitative operations. Journal evaluations are conducted with objective and transparent methodologies and provide a record identifying the journal and enumerating the practices found that counter legitimate journal established procedures.

Predatory Reports is complemented by Cabells’ Journalytics, a curated database of over 11,000 verified, reputable academic journals providing publication information, metrics, and analytics to help scholars identify the most appropriate journals in which to publish research to maximize impact.
