NUR Black List

Predatory publishing, sometimes called write-only publishing or deceptive publishing, is an exploitative academic publishing business model that involves charging publication fees to authors without checking articles for quality and legitimacy and without providing the other editorial and publishing services that legitimate academic journals provide, whether open access or not.

Predatory journals accept papers (and collect publication fees) regardless of quality, and whether it is an open access or closed access.
There is no concert list for the predatory journal and NUR is updating the predatory journals list whenever there is an update.

In addition to the Predatory and Hijacked journals lists, NUR is listing any journal or publisher that giving fake information or publishing non peer-reviewed research articles. The objective is to do not let the academics and researchers in the Kurdistan Region Universities publishing in these listed journals/publishers that waste there scientific works and affect the University scientific reputation.
