[Please excuse duplicate postings]

Today I am releasing the 2013 versions of my lists of predatory publishers and journals. Please see http://scholarlyoa.com/2012/12/06/bealls-list-of-predatory-publishers-2013/

This year's list of predatory publishers includes over 225 highly-questionable scholarly publishing operations. Last year's list included only 23 publishers, and the 2010 list had about 18.

This year's list of predatory stand-alone journals has 106 titles. (The previous year's list did not include stand-alone titles). I continuously updates these lists on my blog Scholarly Open Access<http://scholarlyoa.com>, http://scholarlyoa.com<http://scholarlyoa.com/>, throughout the year.

The increase in predatory publishers from 18 to 225 in two years demonstrates the increasing scale of the problem. The entire scholarly publishing system is in danger of eroding due to the increasing influence of predatory publishing.
