I have published my paper in Global Scientific Journal. But some scholars are telling me that the journal is not reputable. How do I determine if Global Scientific Journal is reputable or predatory?


Although the question may be flagged as "off topic", I think that it is essential to expose predatory journals nonetheless. Hence my answer is:

Yes, most probably Global Scientific Journal - GSJ Publication is predatory (which is worse than non-reputable). My assessment is based simply on the reputable Beall's list here (updated two weeks ago, 18 Aug 2019):

Here we include journals that were not originally on the Beall's list, but may be predatory.

Global Journal of Advance Research on Classical and Modern Geometries

Global Journal of Research on Medicinal Plants & Indigenous Medicine

Global Scientific Journal - GSJ Publication

    I wonder if Beall minds others naming things after him, given that he no longer contributes to the list? – Allure Aug 31 '19 at 14:18
