Have they been identified as a “Predatory Publisher”?

Jeffrey Beall, an academic librarian at the University of Colorado Denver has created a website that lists problematic scholarly open access publishers. He gives a fully outlined criteria for inclusion of publishers on this list, however his criteria has at times been challenged. Please note that this is not considered an entirely authoritative list as Beall has published articles that make it clear he is critical of the Open Access publishing movement in general. As well doing an Internet search yourself for a publisher may also yield more information if there is a problematic issue.
