Research and Scientific Publication Support Services by Experts
Publishing years of research as a paper in International Journals has always been a must-do for researchers across the globe. It is a widely known fact that academic publishing is a rigorous process. For many researchers, especially first timers, the publishing process can be a daunting task. Non-adherence to journal guidelines and publishing protocols result in outright rejections. Hence, the crude reality of academic publishing is that there are more manuscript rejections than acceptances, let alone successful publications.
Whether you are a PhD student or a senior researcher, time is a precious commodity. Getting a paper published takes months, and sometimes, even years. With our publication support services, you can consult experts for legitimate journals publishers.

8 Ways to Identify a Questionable Open Access Journal
Open access journals provide many benefits for both authors and readers. But like any type of business, there are open access journals that operate for the right reasons and a few that are simply trying to make money without any scholarship involved.
These “predatory” journals don’t just take your money, they also take away your control over your scholarship. Once they have “published” your paper, it may be impossible to submit it to a true journal. In addition, so-called “vanity presses” that accept every article without a rigorous peer review process may misinform readers performing online research and undermine public trust in the peer review system itself.
So if it is important to avoid predatory companies masquerading as scholarly journals, how do you spot those journals? Here are a few warning signs. These points are only potential indicators of a journal or publisher being dishonest.
Some legitimate journals may meet a few of these points, particularly when they have just been launched. However, if you are thinking of submitting to or citing an article from a journal that meets a number of criteria on this list, we recommend doing more research about the journal first. Here are 8 top indicators of questionable publishers.
1. The journal asks for a submission fee instead of a publication fee or tries to keep the copyright to authors’ work.
2. The editorial board is very small or “coming soon.”
3. A single publisher releases an overwhelmingly large suite of new journals all at one time.
4. The journal says an issue will be available at a certain time, but the issue never appears.
5. The website is not professional in quality.
6. The journal title notes a national or international affiliation that does not match its editorial board or location.
7. There are fundamental errors in the titles and abstracts.
8. The content of the journal varies from the title and stated scope.
Taken together, these diverse indicators should make it easier for both authors and readers to identify credible online open access journals.
