The "dark side" of open access publishing:
"Parallel world of pseudo-academia, complete with prestigiously titled conferences and journals that sponsor them. Many of the journals and meetings have names that are nearly identical to those of established, well-known publications and events. ... online journals that will print seemingly anything for a fee." -- Scientific Articles Accepted (Personal Checks, Too), New York Times, April 7th, 2013.

It is recommended to publish only with a member of the Open Access Scholarly Publishers Association (OASPA).
