A Consensus Definition for Predatory Journals.

A definition for predatory journals? A group of scholars recently announced a consensus definition for predatory journals: “Predatory journals and publishers are entities that prioritize self-interest at the expense of scholarship and are characterized by false or misleading information, deviation from best editorial and publication practices, a lack of transparency, and/or the use of aggressive and indiscriminate solicitation practices.” Project materials are available in the Open Science Framework.
