(27 Jul 2022) Cabells has announced the launch of Journalytics Medicine & Predatory Reports, their newest search platform dedicated to the medical research community. With in-depth information on over 7,000 verified medical journals and 16,000 predatory journals, this curated database provides submission guidelines, detailed metrics, historical trends, and more helps researchers, librarians, funders, and administrators discover, verify, and evaluate quality medical journals.
Users can assess verified medical publications across 37 disciplines by browsing, searching, or filtering for specific goals. Every publication included in Journalytics Medicine has been hand-verified and evaluated using a comprehensive set of selection criteria. Journal listings include bibliographic information, submission and manuscript details, access model, fee, and reuse information, and citation-backed metrics providing measures of discipline strength, influence, and attention, powered by partnerships with top data organizations.
Each entry in Predatory Reports displays information on how to identify the journal in the real world as well as a comprehensive report detailing each violation that was uncovered during the journal’s evaluation. Journals are examined by Cabells review teams against more than 70 behaviors that contradict standard industry practices and are indicative of deception. Predatory Reports provides complete records of a publication’s behaviors broken down by level of severity in categories such as integrity, peer review, publication and business practices, fees, indexing, and more.
