This is a collection of links to information, opinion, activism, and other issues concerning the practices of research journal publishers (particularly in the mathematical sciences). Further contributions are welcome.

Pledges, boycotts, and petitions

Blog posts and opinion pieces


  • Elsevier Published 6 Fake Journals, article in The Scientist, May 2009. Summary: Elsevier was paid by unnamed pharmaceutical companies to publish six journals that looked like independent peer-reviewed medical journals, but which were not.
    • The Elsevier fake-journal tally eventually rose to nine.
