  10. 10. Eariler Research: ‘Predatory’ Open Access: A longitudinal Study of Article Volumes and Market Characteristics (Shen and Björk, 2015)
  11. 11. •Earlier research about questionable OA publishing have so far mainly concentrated on exposing lacking peer review and scandals involving publishers and journals. •There is a lack of serious studies about several aspects of this phenomenon, including extent and regional effects. •The aim of our study is to provide a comprehensive understanding of questionable publishers and/or journals in terms of •distribution of publishers and authors acorss regions •the number of journals •the number of articles published over the past five years •APC costs •publication time

  20. 20. • To conclude, between 2010 and 2014, there was a dramatic rise in the number of questionable OA journals and articles published by them with exceptional low APCs of 300 USD per journal and a short publishing time between 2-3 months. • The problem of questionable OA publishing is highly limited and regional to a few developing countries, where ‘international publication’ is a prerequisite for academic appointment, more funding, or promotion.
  21. 21. Reflections
  22. 22. •Questionable OA publishers and/or journals has (1) caused negative publicity to OA publishing in general (‘pay to publish’) and (2) posed a danger to the landscape of Science (‘production of low-quality research’) •What can we do to combat the fast growth of questionable OA publishing market? •It's critical to (1) every stakeholder need to play a role (2) call for collaborative efforts from various key stakeholders to find the effective solutions.
