Predatory open access publishing 

In academic publishing, predatory open access publishing is an exploitative open-access publishing business model that involves charging publication fees to authors without providing the editorial and publishing services associated with legitimate journals (open access or not). It is strongly recommended that researchers, scientists, and academics avoid doing business with these predatory publishers and predatory OA Journals.
