Cabell’s Blacklist – now available to University of Melbourne Staff and Students

Cabell’s Blacklist is now available via Cabell’s Scholarly Analytics. The Blacklist is a searchable database of journals that have been flagged as possibly exhibiting fraudulent or misleading behaviours. Journal titles are evaluated according to criteria listed on the Cabells’ website. Journal Summaries provide the basic information necessary to identify a blacklisted journal, including the specific predatory behaviours that the evaluation revealed.

Authors considering where to publish need to make their own publishing decisions according to what’s best for their discipline and particular research output, but the Blacklist provides information which could help make those decisions and/or suggest further investigation.
