Where to publish

What is predatory publishing?

Jeffrey Beall (2012) discription of predatory publishing:

Then came predatory publishers, which publish counterfeit journals to exploit the open-access model in which the author pays. These predatory publishers are   dishonest and lack transparency. They aim to dupe researchers, especially those inexperienced in scholarly communication. They set up websites that closely resemble those of legitimate online publishers, and pbulish journals or questionable and downright low quality.  Many purport to be headquartered in the United States, United Kingdom, Canada or Autralia but really hail from Pakistan, India or Nigeria. Some predatory publishers spam researchers, soliciting manuscripts but failing to mention the required author fee.
