Elsevier confirms 6 fake journals; more comments

Gavin Baker (in Peter Suber’s Bog) hat eine sehr schöne Übersicht über den vielzitierten und -gebloggten Elsevierfall zusammengestellt, am besten gefällt mir das Zitat von Peter Murray-Rust, dem netten und streitbaren Open Access-Chemieprofessor:

… So – as many have noted – here is a commercial company which has campaigned to rubbish Open Access as “junk science” behaving in a manner which totally destroys any trust in their ethics and practice. I have no option but to say that I now cannot absolutely trust the ethical integrity of every piece of information in Elsevier journals.
