I'm guessing this belongs in "Is It Science".

http://www.nytimes.com/...ding-world-of-pseudo-academia.html

The above article discusses the problem that has sprung up along with open access journals. It seems that there are "spammers" in the science publishing business who make money by pretending to be legitimate journals or conferences and accepting anything accompanied by a hefty fee.

I'd be interested in hearing from the practicing scientists here about this issue. How can one distinguish between good and junk publications?

How to Tell?
So with this sort of thing polluting published works how does the layman tell which is which?

Fine until...
Until the discovery institute or Institute for Creation Research start publishing their "scientific" papers in these things and we see them referenced here.

Gone until May . Off to Italy and Greece
