“Librarians should play a critical role in alerting academics to publishers that have taken advantage of this environment for several reasons, Beall said in an e-mail interview. “First, for tenure-track researchers, promotion and tenure committees may not recognize work published in low-quality venues. Second, when one’s work appears side-by-side with other works that contain author misconduct, such as plagiarism, image and data manipulation, etc., it devalues the work of the honest author.”
Digital preservation can be a low priority for such publishers, he added, meaning that a scholar’s work could disappear along with a journal, should it go out of business.”
