In recent years, the increasing popularity of open-access journals has resulted in scientific publishing that is quick, easily accessible, and more democratic - all great things, right? However, the New York Times has a new article out that looks at the dark side of this publishing revolution: new, "predatory" journals that take advantage of the boom in online publishing to dupe unsuspecting scientists out of potential thousands in publishing fees. The scams are various, and I strongly suggest hopping over to read the article in its entirety. As they say, forewarned is forearmed! And you, dear readers - any suggestions (or horror stories) you'd like to share with fellow scientists?
