Beware of predatory publishing

Predatory open-access publishing is an exploitative open-access academic publishing business model that involves charging publication fees to authors without providing the editorial and publishing services associated with legitimate journals. The idea that they are 'predatory' is based on the view that academics are tricked into publishing with them, though some authors may be aware that the journal is poor quality or even fraudulent.
