The false academy: predatory publishing in science and bioethics” por Stefan Eriksson e Gert Helgesson

“This paper describes and discusses the phenomenon ‘predatory publishing’, in relation to both academic journals and books, and suggests a list of characteristics by which to identify predatory journals.

Towards the end of the paper it is discussed what can and should be done to eliminate or reduce the effects of this development.
