Who is afraid of Peer review: Sting Operation of The Science: Some analysis of the metadata

October 9, 2013

Short link to this post: http://wp.me/p3eOrO-Z

Science has published a news article about the apparent lack of proper peer-review at many open access journals. The recent “sting” article in Science exposed certain real predatory journals (Not by J Beall’s definition) for publishing clearly erroneous scientific results in exchange for money.  The author, contributing Science reporter John Bohannon, concocted a spoof paper with scientific problems, which ended up to be accepted in 157 out of 304 open access journals. OASPA clearly pointed that this particular study lacks many important conclusions and more analysis were required: “Overall, although the data undoubtedly support the view that a substantial number of poor-quality journals exist, and some certainly lack sufficient rigor in their peer review processes, no conclusions can be drawn about how open access journals compare with similar subscription journals, or about the overall prevalence of this phenomenon.”

My cultural belief and traditional learning tells me that “if we see only one lamp in the ocean of darkness, then we must highlight it, as it is the only hope. We must protect and showcase that lamp to defeat the darkness”. If anybody tells that “The results show that Beall is good at spotting publishers with poor quality control.” Then it tells one part of the story. It is only highlighting who failed in this experiment. It is not telling or highlighting about those publishers who passed this experiment but still occupy the seat in Beall’s famous list. I really hate this trend.

I also agree with the comments of Phil Davis “It also means that the DOAJ, if it is to remain a directory of open access journals that uses a “quality control system to guarantee the content” must provide stricter guidelines and require evidence that publishers are doing what they purport to be doing. The DOAJ may also require independent auditing to periodically verify a publisher’s claims. It is simply not enough to take promises of quality control on word alone. Finally, it means that librarian, Jeffrey Beall, should reconsider listing publishers on his “predatory” list until he has evidence of wrongdoing. Being mislabeled as a “potential, possible, or probable predatory publisher” by circumstantial evidence alone is like the sheriff of a Wild West town throwing a cowboy into jail just ‘cuz he’s a little funny lookin.’” I also agree that: “Similarly, the results show that neither the Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ), nor Beall’s List  are accurate in detecting which journals are likely to provide peer review. In spite of an editorial and advisory board on the DOAJ, nearly half (45%) of the journals that received the bogus manuscript accepted it for publication. And while Bohannon reports that Beall was good at spotting publishers with poor quality control (82% of publishers on his list accepted the manuscript). That means that Beall is falsely accusing nearly one in five as being a ”potential, possible, or probable predatory scholarly open access publisher” on appearances alone.”

I saw that Bohannon was more interested to highlight the dark side of OA. He used very few words for praising  or highlighting the journals/publishers who successfully passed the test. He only mentioned about PlOS One and Hindawi, who are already accepted by academicians for their high reputation. At least I expected that Bohannon will include a table to highlight the journals/publishers, who passed test. I spent very little time to analyze the data. Surprisingly I found some errors made by Bohannon to rightly indicate the category of publishers (DOAJ / Beall). I have indicated some errors and I could not complete the cross-checking of all 304 publishers/journal. Bohannon used DOAJ/Beall as his main category of selecting the journals. But error in properly showing this category-data, may indicate that he spent more time in collecting the raw data, than analyzing the data or curating the data.

To come to some conclusions, I have just applied the filtering tools of Microsoft Excell and got some interesting lists.

I appreciate that Bohannon supplied all the raw data here: http://www.sciencemag.org/content/342/6154/60/suppl/DC1

I used the metadata supplied in this in this link for analysis. I hope this lists are useful:

  1. An obligation of appreciation is needed for this post, i have found this to an extraordinary degree accommodating. i want to learn more info regarding it.

  2. I and also my buddies ended up analyzing the good helpful tips located on your site while before long developed a horrible feeling I never thanked the blog owner for those secrets. Most of the boys had been so stimulated to read through all of them and have in effect without a doubt been making the most of these things. I appreciate you for being well helpful as well as for figuring out this sort of notable things millions of individuals are really needing to be informed on. Our sincere apologies for not saying thanks to earlier.

    AASCIT are complete spammers beware. Recently i sent an article to the american journal of science and technologyu. After a bogus review they replied they have accepted my article. they asked me to pay article processing charges. The bank transfer address is Honkong while the journal is American! I transferred USD 200. After ackinolweding the recipt of the money they refused to publish my article. I pleaded with them but since then they refused to reply. The address aascit002@gmail.com. there is no person full name, no address, no contact. Only gmail address. These are complete spammers. Do not ever send your journal to AACIT. I have all the evidence of the communication i had with them. If need be i can give you the details.

    Dear Beall,
    Last year I had a paper published on Journal of Agriculture Science and Technology (JAST) by China Branch of David Publishing Company. What do you think about the Journal?
    Kind regards,
    Djoko Santoso.
