Predatory journals/publishers charge fees to publish articles with little or no peer review process.

Check out the predatory publishers page on our Open Access LibGuide for more information (including authoritative resources to search), or talk to the staff at the Research Help desk about assessing the validity of a journal before submitting your article. Drop by in person, send an email to research@smu.ca, or give us a call at 902-420-5544.
