Been getting a lot of emails from this predatory journal lately, so I decided to submit this manuscript. Stay tuned. 🤞🤞🤞…
I'm hoping to be added to their Field Ornithology special issue.
To be fair, I really want to know what makes a bird tick...
This is my data repository thanks Cory!
UPDATE: Devastating news! Desk rejection! Appreciate the quick turnaround time though. Thinking of reformatting for Nature... #PublishOrPerish
AMAZING news folks. I submitted my paper to the prestigious Scientific Journal of Research & Reviews and it was accepted! They formatted it for publication, including @stacyfarina's lovely figure! Now to come up with $1,600...
UPDATE: I emailed the “editor” to ask if they were a predatory journal and he assured me they weren’t. He said my paper was reviewed by three experts and sent me these reviewer comments. I’m sold.
UPDATE: I asked for a fee waiver, and after consulting with their “Higher Authorities”, they agreed to publish my paper for the low low price of $1,027! A steal for such a prestigious journal!
UPDATE: To anyone still following this ridiculous saga- I told the “editor” I was withdrawing my paper and sending it to Nature instead. We are now apparently in an open negotiation regarding the publication fee. How low will he go???
UPDATE: These fraudsters are really desperate. They’ve now come down from ~$1,700 to $99. Worst. Scammers. Ever. The Nigerian Prince people would be embarrassed.
FOLKS. We did it. We wore them down. WE WON. This random, sketchy, blatant scam of a predatory journal decided to publish my magnum opus FOR FREE. You can now find the final, published version in all it's glory here:…
Nice writeup on this sordid tale in @TheWeek by @KathrynKrawczyk…
See Jerry Coyne’s commentary here. I especially like “By the way, the author’s name, Daniel T. Baldassarre, sounds like a hoax name, too, but he’s a real biologist...”
Had a nice chat with @RyanFMandelbaum from @Gizmodo, who wrote a great piece about predatory journals.…
A nice commentary for all my Dutch friends!…
