Jeffrey Beall work as a librarian at Auraria Library, University of Colorado Denver, in Denver, Colorado. He maintains a list of open access journals and publishers.
He includes lot of good journals as list of Predatory publishers in his web page. He will write rubbish about the journals for particular period of time then email the publisher for negotiation. If the publisher agrees to pay him, he will remove the publisher from his predatory list. Since the growing and well reputed open access journals is taking the revenue of closed access publishers, he has been doing this scam for a long time and is backed by closed access journals community.
For example he black listed Hindawi and Versita Open and after “negotiation”, he removed the publishers name from his black list. This guy publish his “great research” works with the help of his supporters. He had published an article in “XYZ” and it can be accessible in the Internet.
The readers posted comments about his real face and “XYZ’s websites. Since XYZ is a strong backer of him, removed those comments from its web pages. THE XYZ is a one of the leading closed Access Publisher.
