"An Interview with Jeffrey Beall"

Posted in Open Access, Publishing, Scholarly Journals on February 8th, 2016

Joseph Esposito has published "An Interview with Jeffrey Beall" in The Scholarly Kitchen.

Here's an excerpt:

[Beall] In the scholarly open access segment of the scholarly publishing industry, we are seeing that the most prosperous publishers are the larger ones, those able to offshore their production work. Hindawi (in Egypt) and MDPI (with most of its work done in China) are two examples. I think the industry will continue to select for publishers like these, meaning many production-related jobs in North America and Europe will move to South Asia and East Asia.

              "Are ‘Predatory’ Journals Completely Negative, or Also a Sign of Something Positive?"

              Posted in Open Access, Publishing, Scholarly Journals on February 4th, 2016

              Jan Velterop has published "Are 'Predatory' Journals Completely Negative, or Also a Sign of Something Positive?" in SciELO in Perspective.

              Here's an excerpt:

              Yet, even with the drawback of being polluted by predatory journals, a functioning market is preferable to a quasi-market, completely dominated by monopolies or monopoly-like players. A system of subscriptions, in which the party who pays—the institutional library—has practically no meaningful choice of what to buy, differs from one of article processing charges (APCs, which make open access possible), in that the party who pays—the author—is the party who does have a meaningful choice of where to submit and publish. So 'flipping' the system from subscriptions to APCs does deliver something much more akin to a functioning market, and 'caveat emptor', 'buyer beware', applies to all markets.
