This website is based on the Jeffrey Beall's list of predatory publishing which contains more than +1000 entries of predatory publishers and journals.

About


The IsPredatory project is an initiative of iWAN Research Group at the College of Computer and Information Sciences (CCIS), King Saud University. The idea was initiated after finding Jeffrey Beall's list of predatory open access publishing as a good source to filter publishing venues. The Beall's list of predatory publishing contains more than +1000 entries

of predatory publishers and journals that cannot be easily searched manually. Thus, this website will work as a proxy for Beall's list of predatory publishing as well as portal for scholars and researchers to report their concerns about any predatory journal or conference.
