Policy Note @ TAPMI on Predatory Journals
Individual faculty researchers at TAPMI have a general responsibility to be wary of not submitting work to predatory journals. Some of the criteria to identify such journals may be those with abnormally high acceptance rate, abnormally speedy processing, journals who spam researchers email inboxes with mails soliciting academic work for early/certain publishing, etc.
TAPMI has adopted Cabell’s Black List as the reference list of predatory journals to be avoided. The link to the list (available internally only) is: www.cabells.com (Blacklist)
