Helping researchers distinguish credible journals, Sian Harris, INASP, 28 May 2018

“we found that 6% of the researchers we surveyed had reported having published in journals with deceitful publishing practices. We suspect that the 6% is a significant underestimate as this only covers the people who have found out that they have done so and anecdotes suggest that many don’t discover the problems with the places they have published until much later.”

Think. Check. Submit.: the campaign helping researchers navigate the scholarly communication landscape, Helen Dobson, UKSG Insights, 2016 , 29(3), 228–232

“Think.Check.Submit. aims to empower researchers so that they are equipped to assess journals when preparing a submission and choose the best possible journal for their work. … A story shared by one of the INASP team about a researcher who had inadvertently found himself not only publishing in a journal with disreputable editorial processes but also on the board of that journal highlights the vulnerability of researchers who believe they are following conventions in establishing their academic career.”
