Predatory journals, also called fraudulent, deceptive, or pseudo-journals are publications that claim to be legitimate scholarly journals, but misrepresent their publishing practices. Some common forms of predatory publishing practices include falsely claiming to provide peer review, hiding information about Article Processing Charges (APCs), misrepresenting members of the journal’s editorial board, and other violations of copyright or scholarly ethics.
The main goal of predatory journals is profit. They attempt to deceive authors to publish for a fee without providing robust peer-review or editorial services, thereby putting profit over trustworthy and dependable science. For many, career progression depends on publishing, so one may look for journals that promise to publish all submissions.
