A List Of Questionable Publishers

Dr. Ketchum’s Journal Makes A List Of Questionable Publishers

Scholarly Open Access Journal keeps a regularly updated list of journals that are considered to be "potential, possible, or probable predatory scholarly open access publishers." And it looks like the publisher of Dr. Ketchum’s journal, Denovo Journal of scientific publishing has made the list.

SOA provides this list known Beall’s list on a regular basis in order to keep writers of scholarly papers informed of potentially shady publishers. And Denovo Journal is clearly listed. Potential clients of these publishers are urged by SOA to watch the reviews on these publishers, educate themselves, and make informed decisions about whether or not to publish with them.

SOA did emphasize that journals and publishers do change their business practices from time to time, but attempt to keep their information up to date as much as possible.

But what does this say about about Dr. Ketchum’s DNA project and its validity? Only time will tell. *****DF
