In academia, predatory publishing refers to the unethical practices of a growing number of open access publishers, who make false claims about the merit of their publications in a bid to lure researchers to submit their work.
The term was coined by Jeffrey Beall who until 2017 maintained a blog exposing such publishers, and a continually updated (but not exhaustive) list of publishers and their titles.
An archived copy of Beall's list exists but should no longer be used to identify predatory journals as it is not updated or maintained and therefore cannot reflect current changes or practices of journals on the list.
The World Association of Medical Editors (WAME) has released a document to "provide guidance to help editors, researchers, funders, academic institutions and other stakeholders distinguish predatory journals from legitimate journals."
Journals included in the following lists are considered to be of a high standard:
Humanities, Arts, Social Sciences
Business, Economics, Tourism
