"Illegitimate Journals and How to Stop Them: An Interview with Kelly Cobey and Larissa Shamseer"

Alice Meadows has published "Illegitimate Journals and How to Stop Them: An Interview with Kelly Cobey and Larissa Shamseer" in The Scholarly Kitchen.

Here's an excerpt:

Earlier this year, David Moher, Larissa Shamseer, Kelly Cobey, and colleagues caused a bit of a stir when they published an article in Nature showing that, contrary to some (many?) expectations, it’s not just authors from low-income countries who publish in so-called "predatory" journals. In fact, their analysis of nearly 2,000 biomedical articles from more than 200 predatory journals found that "more than half of the corresponding authors hailed from high- and upper-middle-income countries as defined by the World Bank."
