Publishers to Avoid

When considering a publisher, ask yourself the following questions:

  • Indexing:
  • Fees:
    • Is the journal up front about any author charges?
  • Members:
    • Does the journal list a managing editor and editorial board members with legitimate academic affiliations and contact information?
  • Frequency:
    • Does the journal publish regularly?
  • Policies and procedures:
    • Does the journal provide detailed information about author submission guidelines, peer-review processes, and copyright policies?
  • Overall quality:
    • Is the journal website content error-free? Are articles professionally copy-edited? Is this somewhere you are proud to have your work featured?
