Jeffrey Beall, a librarian at the University of Colorado Denver, compiled a list of "potential, possible, or probable predatory" journals and publishers. The list above is an archived version of the list as the origianl Beall's list is no longer being updated. More details on the end of the list can be read at Retraction Watch.
This list was created following the demise of Beall's list. Cabell's is a subscription service and Seneca College does not subscribe. For access, check a large academic or university library.
Note: These lists are by no means comprehensive and authoritative. They are designed to help authors, but are not the final authority on this topic. Authors should conduct their own due diligence to reach their own conclusions.
