Scholarly Open Access
Mr. J. Beall
is mere a librarian [whose authenticity is fully questionable] having
dubious trustworthiness. He has nothing to do with Research World. There
is heaven and hell difference between a researcher and a librarian. A
librarian has his own limitations and his knowledge regarding research is
shallow and misguiding.
a decade or so, when internet/latest computer technology was not so much
advanced or familiar, we could not even dream or imagine that there could
be concept of Open Access Journal. There was only one option available to
readers/researchers i.e. print version / subscribed journals and hence
there was only one tool available i.e. ‘Impact Factor’ to rank journal
which was based on citation factor only. This has enabled to convert
“Research Journal Publishers” to “Commercial Capitalists”
resulting commercial turnovers in millions of dollars. These “Commercial
Capitalists” started to utilize librarians by paying huge commissions to
boost their business, earn profits in manifold and to remain world’s
champion in research community. Librarians were also very happy to have
multiple source of illegal income at the cost of readers.
Access Journals are most popular and preferred by everyone belonging to
research community due to internet and advancement of other computer
technology which has acted as stumbling rock on the way of illegal
moneymakers. This has resulted unbearable financial losses to all people
belonging to “Commercial Capitalists” group including librarians and
they have become rivals of Open Access Journals. They are trying their
best to discourage Open Access Journals and leaving no stone unturned to
throw this advance technology by playing dirty tricks.
Mr. J. Beall
is representing old tradition mafia i.e. commercial capitalists and his
blogs and list is fictitious. Such people are purely selfish and
money-minded who are really a threat to Novel Research activity and
community. They can take any nasty steps to earn money.
displayed by Mr. J. Beall is totally fabricated and includes the names of
ONLY Open Access Journals and he is declaring almost all Open Access
Journals as fake without having any evidences. So called open access
journals in which only title or abstract is available but one has to buy
journal to read the paper, are not included in his list.
everyone belonging to genuine research community prefers open access and
discards old tradition which is observed in various research papers and
seems to be so comical that we even did not bother to reply him. It is
well known and is also written by him that he always takes a Birdseye view
of any journal. He never goes for detailed investigation. It’s
very easy to register on WordPress blogging and start blaming on what’s
happening on surrounding ecosystem.
Many of the
researchers even think that he just dances on the fingers of Nature/Elsevier/Other
big names. He should recall his morale ethics and understand that if a
shop is small (not as big as Walmart) then it directly doesn't mean it’s
fake. It is also important to notice that how just a 'librarian' (He has
nothing to do with actual research) can conduct research journals’
investigations without any assistance. He should reveal his background
that who is sponsoring him. It can be easily understood that he is helping
those "Closed Cabin" companies because their commission in
Library subscription is being targeted by open access journals. That’s
why 99% percent of existing Open Access Journals are listed in his so
called "funny list" and he is targeting Open Access Journals
Mr. J. Beall
is neither a critic nor a sufferer but he is a having intentions to earn
money through malpractice/dirty tricks. The list displayed by him is
itself a fraudulent and baseless.
lets unite and as are planning to take suitable stringent legal
actions against Mr. Beall for showing our name in his list of fake
journals mischievously if he does not apologize publicly and withdraw his
really thankful to you for bringing such a serious conspiracy against us
in our knowledge.
