Cabells offers resources to evaluate academic journals.
Features the Whitelist and the Blacklist.
The Whitelist is an independent, curated database of scholarly journals that guides researchers, publishers, librarians, academics, and administrators to the publications they need. The Whitelist provides complete contact and publication information, multiple quality metrics, submission experience data, and peer review indicators for over 11,000 verified journals across 18 academic disciplines. In addition to the journals database, contextual metrics such as the Cabell's Classification Index©, the Difficulty of Acceptance©, and the Institutional Publishing Activity© are powerful tools designed to help researchers search, filter and compare journals when making decisions about publication and to assist administrators in evaluating publication records.
The Blacklist is a searchable database of deceptive and predatory academic journals, the only one of its kind. Our specialists analyze suspected publications against over 60 behavioral indicators to keep the community abreast of the growing threats and to keep researchers protected from exploitative operations. Subscribers have access a database of detailed reports for every journal that our specialists have evaluated and flagged as a probable threat. Each report provides ways to identify the journal and enumerates the specific predatory behaviors that the evaluation revealed.
