[Library Network] Caution Regarding Predatory Journals

 On 2020-09-17 (932 reads)

Kyoto University Library Network has been making efforts to caution its faculty, staff, and students
about the issue of “predatory journals” that are published solely to profit from the paper submission fees (APC) collected from authors, and are not properly peer-reviewed.

As predatory journals continue to be a problem, the Kyoto University Library Network has updated its leaflets warning about the issue.
Please check our leaflets and reconfirm the details of predatory journals.

Is This Journal Legitimate? Beware of Predatory Journals
