Hi all,

FYI Beall’s list is removed. Check the following post: Mystery as
controversial list of predatory publishers disappears
<http://www.sciencemag.org/news/2017/01/mystery-controversial-list-predatory-publishers-disappears>
.



A better option for authors to verify good publishers is
thinkchecksubmit.org. In my opinion, it does a  better job than Beall's
controversial list, because it relies on authors’ own judgements.


 “Think. Check. Submit. is a cross-industry initiative led by
representatives from ALPSP, DOAJ, INASP,  ISSN, LIBER, OASPA, STM, UKSG,
and individual publishers.”



Have a good day!
