Although I'm now out of librarianship, I had found the website useful in the past and from continuing to read the listservs it seems that it still is.

Beall’s List of Predatory Publishers 2013

By Jeffrey Beall

Released December 4, 2012

The gold open-access model has given rise to a great many new online
publishers. Many of these publishers are corrupt and exist only to make
money off the author processing charges that are billed to authors upon
acceptance of their scientific manuscripts.

There are two lists below. The first includes questionable, scholarly
open-access publishers. Each of these publishers has a portfolio that
ranges from just a few to hundreds of individual journal titles.

The second list includes individual journals that do not publish under
the platform of any publisher — they are essentially independent,
questionable journals.

In both cases, we recommend that researchers, scientists, and academics
avoid doing business with these publishers and journals. Scholars should
avoid sending article submissions to them, serving on their editorial
boards or reviewing papers for them, or advertising in them. Also,
tenure and promotion committees should give extra scrutiny to articles
published in these journals, for many of them include instances of
author misconduct.

There are still many high-quality journals available for scholars to
publish in, including many that do not charge author processing fees. An
additional option is author self-archiving of articles in
discipline-specific and institutional repositories.

The author is grateful to the many colleagues who have shared
information about potential predatory publishers. Last year’s list
included 23 publishers, and this year’s has over 225, evidence of the
rapid growth in the number of predatory journals and publishers. This
list will be updated throughout the year at the blog Scholarly Open
Access, http://scholarlyoa.com.

The criteria for inclusion in the lists can be found here. The author’s
email address is: jeffre...@ucdenver.edu.
