Abstract

The debate on “predatory” publishing within academic scholarly communication continues. Blacklists (or watchlists) pertaining to “predatory” open access publishing by Jeffrey Beall, anonymous websites that cloned Beall’s blacklists, with or without updates, as well as a now-defunct blacklist, Dolos list, contain classification errors. During a Google search in 2021–2022, we found that dozens of academic libraries around the world, primarily in the USA, had continued to promote those blacklists. The list was revisited on 23 February 2023, focusing on libraries in seven Anglophonic countries, noting that 37 libraries were still promoting the Beall-based blacklists.
