invite all of you to read what people say commenting on his article (http://www.nature.com/news/predatory-publishers-are-corrupting-open-access-1.11385)
is constantly removing the negative posts about Jeffrey Beall.
Dr Gillian Dooley (Special Collections Librarian at Flinders
Jeffrey Beall's list is not accurate to believe. There are a lot of
personal biases of Jeffrey Beall. Hindawi still uses heavy spam emailing.
Versita Open still uses heavy spam emailing. But these two publishers have
been removed in Jeffrey Beall's list recently. There is no reason given by
Jeffrey Beall why they were removed. Jeffrey Beall is naive in his analysis.
I think some other reliable blog should be created to discuss more
fruitfully these issues. His blog has become useless.
Mark Robinson (Acting Editor, Stanford Magazine):
It is a real shame that Jeffrey Beall using Nature.com's blog to promote
his predatory work. Jeffrey Beall just simply confusing us to promote his
academic terrorism. His list is fully questionable. His surveying method
is not scientific. If he is a real scientist then
he must do everything in standard way without any dispute. He wanted to be
famous but he does not have the right to destroy any company name or brand
without proper allegation. If we support Jeffrey Beall's work then we are
also a part of his criminal activity. Please avoid Jeffrey Beall's
fraudulent and criminal activity.
Now a days anyone can open a blog and start doing things like Jeffrey
Beall which is harmful for science and
open access journals. Nature should also be very alert from Jeffrey Beall
who is now using Nature's reputation to broadcast his bribery and
unethical business model.
Now, I invite all of you in order to take all precautions and not being
misled by this blackmailer.
