We hope all of you are doing well in this particular time we are going through. We are writing to you because some participants at the EACAS Conference in Barcelona (2019) recently informed us about invitations they have received to publish theirconference papers in journals with dubious credibility.
Out of concern for these practices, we wanted to warn you about the reality of predatory journals, of which some of you may be very familiar with, but some may not. Predatory journals are publications which incurre in deceptive practices, mostly involving charging publication fees to authors without checking articles for quality and legitimacy and without providing the other editorial and publishing services that legitimate academic journals provide, whether open access or not.
For further information we recommend you check these lists of Predatory Journals and Publishers. Also, Think. Check. Submit helps through the process of choosing a journal to submit your work.
