Unfortunately, there are fake publishers and organizations that try to mimic the best journals....
like camouflaged insect pests. Their goal is to offer "too good to be true" FAST peer review and FAST publication for a FEE. They get the fee, and usually publish anything that gets submitted (This ia a variation of Vanity Publishing). Sometimes they even create an "association" that publishes journals.
At this point researchers are dependent on Database vendors such as Ebsco, ProQuest,Gale, etc. to keep the predatory titles out of their databases.
If you select "Peer-reviewed" from a Library Database, you will get more trustworthy results!
