Evaluating Journals (Are they predatory?)

How can you evaluate if a journal is legitimate or predatory (fake)?  

  • Cabells Scholarly Analytics for evaluating sources (Under C from Database Finder page.) 

  • Contains Journalytics, a directory of academic journals that helps researchers find the best place to publish, and Predatory Reports, a searchable database of deceptive and predatory academic journals.
