Bentham Science: How We Avoid Predatory Publishing


Bentham Science Publishers publishes over 140 scholarly journals (Subscription based and Open Access) related to various subject areas of science, technology and medicine. The journals are indexed, recognized and associated with reputable scientific agencies, directories and other entities.

Each article submitted to Bentham Science journals (Subscription and Open Access) is rigorously peer-reviewed. You can read more about our peer review process here. Bentham’s publications are also part of COPE, an organization that aims to define best practice in the ethics of scholarly publishing and to assist authors, editors and publishers to achieve the defined standards. We have several notable journals included in the Journal Citation Reports of Clarivate Analytics with Impact Factor rankings.

The article published in Springer, Medicine, Health Care and Philosophy, that discusses predatory publishing, highlighted a link from a controversial list by Jeffery Beall which has been taken down due to its controversial nature. However, even if one considers his list, he had included publishers such as Biomed Central (part of the Springer-Nature group), Frontier Science etc., all of which are thoroughly respected and reputable publishers. This does not mean that those 2 publishers are predatory, and the same rule applies here. Bentham Science has promptly and clearly addressed all allegations in the past, of any predatory practices, and has duly satisfied its stakeholders and maintained their trust and association. Repetition of such claims is false and misleading. To read the full blog, please visit:
