Database Trial: Cabell’s Blacklist (Through March 11)

Pepperdine Libraries are trialing Cabell’s Blacklist through Monday, March 11.

Cabell’s Blacklist aims to shine a light on deceptive academic publishing practices.

The Blacklist is a searchable database of ​academic journals​ deemed deceptive and predatory by Cabell’s. Publications ​are analyzed for over 60 behavioral indicators ​suggesting deceptive practices. Subscribers have access to a database of reports for journal​s ​that ​Cabell’s ​specialists have evaluated and flagged. Each report enumerates the specific predatory behaviors that ​the Cabell’s​ evaluation revealed.

Access the Blacklist here.
