Beware of Predatory Journals!

Journals that don't adhere to normal editorial and peer-review standards are known as predatory journals. They usually don't appear in databases like CINAHL, but they may appear in open access journal directories and repositories like PubMed Central. Look for journals that only publish 1 to 3 years, or which claim to indexed in databases like CINAHL and Medline, but aren't. Find out more about predatory nursing journals here:
