Predatory Publishing

When reviewing publications, the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation attaches great importance to the actual quality of the publication, regardless of where it is published. That said, it categorically rejects dubious publication practices such as predatory publishing with predatory journals and predatory publishing houses. It strongly advises researchers to avoid this type of publication and other forms of questionable publishing practice and instead help to ensure that the scientific publication system continues to meet the highest quality standards for publication content.

Statements regarding predatory publishing and information that could help you avoid such publications can be found on the following websites.
