  • 67. Questionable Publishing in Perspective • Proportion of low quality journals is comparable between open access and subscription publishing but it looks worse because Open Access journals are more visible FACTS • Not all subscription journals are in Scopus or WoS: only 20-30,000 of 100,000 (data Ulrich’s Web) • Not all open access journals are in DOAJ : only 8 -12,000 of 30,000 *** CONCLUSION Percentage of Quality Journals in Open Access and Subscription Journals is comparable *** Walt Crawford http://citesandinsights.info/civ17i1.pdf
  • 68. • Indonesia has not many questionable journals • The problem is more one of low quality publishing and bad understanding of Good Publishing Practices and the DOAJ criteria for assessing journal quality • There is a need for (repeated) nation-wide education • Useful to get Indonesian translation of the 'DOAJ for publishers info' page The good news is
