Abstract (Document Summary)

Jeffrey Beall is a librarian on a mission. As the scholarly initiatives librarian at the Auraria Library at the University of Colorado-Denver, he has worked as a cataloger for most of his academic library career. But about 3 years ago, he started to see a trend emerging within the academic publishing circuit and began putting the pieces of the puzzle together. Due to this clever catch, Beall is now known as the whistlelower of an increasing number of faux journals. As a cataloger, he says it was natural to track and categorize this new type of scholarly publication. It was in late 2008 and early 2009 when he first became aware of predatory journals, but his term of "predatory publisher" did not stick until 2010.
