Abstract [en]

‘Predatory’ publishing covers a wide range of journals with different characteristics. Society and scientists should not accept deceitful practices in science. Neither should we accept anything less than excellence from publishing houses. Therefore, we should take three measures: first, form committees for each research field to keep track of journals and publishers; second, create a forum where scientists can share their experiences of predatory journals; third, develop software to help scientists and officials spot references to predatory journals in papers and in applications for funding, promotions, or positions.
