Review of invitations to publish in predatory scientific journals

By Peter C Gøtzsche

The business model of predatory scientific journals constitutes consumer fraud as it deceives many people who buy into something they do not get. I receive about 20 invitations per week to publish in predatory journals and two to present research at predatory conferences. I have published an article about these “invitations,” which even included one to submit my preprint manuscript about invitations to publish in predatory journals.
