(1 November 2018) Cabells has now investigated and verified over 10,000 individual titles for inclusion into its Journal Blacklist. Launched in June 2017, Cabells’ Journal Blacklist is a database available to scholars of deceptive and predatory academic journals. The Blacklist is compiled by specialists who analyze suspected journals against 65 behavioral indicators to keep the community abreast of growing threats and to protect researchers and institutions from exploitative operations. It is complemented by the Journal Whitelist, a curated list of over 11,000 verified and trustworthy academic journals spanning 18 disciplines, which guides researchers and institutions in getting the most impact out of their research.
