Hijacked Journals

Hijacked Journals

This is a list of hijacked journals created by a librarian Jeffrey Beall. Any updates to the list will be posted below it.

Sometimes someone will create a counterfeit website that pretends to be the website of a legitimate scholarly journal. The website creators then solicit manuscript submissions for the hijacked version of the journal, pocketing the money. In some cases, the legitimate versions of the journals are only published in print form and they may not have websites.

In the table below, the hijacker is listed in the left column; the corresponding authentic version of the journal is on the right. In cases where no website can be found for the original journal, a link is made to a bibliographic record for the journal.
