Beware of these bogus journal publishers

Are you in a research field?
Don't know where to publish your research papers?
Rather than knowing where to publish, just have a quick peek into where and all not to publish.
The journals are blooming like mushrooms in the recent times. The reason is the rainfall created by some academic and research institutions. These institutions set publishing of a research article as a benchmark for assessing the faculty. They are forced to do so because the rating of these institutions is based on the number of publications they generate. The developing countries are witnessing these new assessment techniques and here the research faculty is more prone for these poaching activities by questionable journals.
So here is a list of such questionable journls edited by Prof Beall, who is a Scholarly Initiatives librarian at the University of Colorado, Denver.
