"beal blackley" Discussed on Science Friction

"The confusion between the open access publishing movement, and predatory journals ease perhaps for another edition of the show. It's controversial you say both charge authors to publish the pipers. Instead of slugging raiders all subscribe is with phase. So the open access argument for that. He's that that opens up scientific knowledge naval before freezing up from behind traditional journal piles, but some believe these autho pies model creates an inherent conflict of interest, and that predatory publishes of titan advantage of that in order to build prophets and the taking advantage of scientists to who had disparate to get published in the publishable perish culture of science. Some of them are taking up the offer because they're being tricked by the predatory publishers. And that's why I use the term predatory because they're preying on them. They're they're preying on their weaknesses that people need to get published. So people. Are earning degrees. People are getting promotions. At universities. People are earning tenure in some cases based on a publications in low quality fake, predatory journals that don't conduct any peer review and have almost no selectivity at all they accept everything. And we've also learned that pharmaceutical companies are publishing their research to justify the efficacy of their new medicines. And are using predatory journals to do that as well. What do you think the K drive is of the predatory general sane has been? It's easy money. As Jeffrey beals Blackley stove. Predatory journals grew in influence as did he's reputation publishes and others. Pushed back angrily at him at he's criteria for inclusion on the least at he's lone ranger approach, and he senior antagonism of open access publishing. Some went straight to his universities, later, sheep to attack his credibility. And he became a kind of hybrid of hero in pariah. Had it is university respond for the most part for the first few years. They were supportive of me and legal office. Did help me could I some tricky situations. You know that I'd gotten in because of the threats from the publishers, but towards the end, I think they grew weary of me and the support decreased we have received pressure to shut Daniel blog from your university. I received a pressure, but it wasn't pressure to shut down the block. Doug things became increasingly uncomfortable towards the end before I retired every tired of year ago. Did it become uncomfortable? The university did that some things I used to have an office, and they took me out of an office and put me into a cubicle. They hired a new person to work in the library. He had two years of library experience. And they made him be my supervisor, and you know, part of predatory publishing. There's a broader context to it. There's a social movement behind open access publishing a lot of people want to kill off the traditional publishers and have them all replaced with open access journals. So that everybody throughout the world connects us all published research, and it's very left wing social movement. And so the person that came in as my supervisor was among among those people, and so we had strikingly different ideologies about scholarly publishing. So that was way that they appreciate me. Why did you Dan bills? Least in in two thousand seventeen it has. Reincarnated with anonymous editors in some sense to protect themselves from what you went through. But why did you decide to shut it down in January about your learned that the university was working with one of the publishers on my list and the result of that was that the university initiated a research misconduct investigation against me. And I knew I hadn't engaged in any research misconduct myself because research misconduct means falsification fabrication or plagiarism by definition. And I knew I hadn't done any of that yet. They started this case against me. And I felt very stigmatized by it and that kind of sealed it for me with the university. I, you know, they take another action against me. And now here was something major research misconduct case. And that's why I decided to stop the list. What was the come of that case the outcome in July of twenty seventeen was no real? Search misconduct found headed that. Make you feel made me feel horrible. I felt like my own university that I worked at for seventeen years was turning against me. And I felt stigmatized and I felt like I really can continue the work. And that's why I shut down the blog and the lists. Do you think that Beal's least was a trigger for that action? Sure. It was the publisher that they worked with was was a big one, and the predatory publishers the ones that are doing really well are rich. They have lots and lots of money. They can hire lawyers to go after people and they can organize. Well, and there are several very large very successful predatory publishers out there, and and they have a lot of power, and they will go after anybody who threatens their income was that the publisher was frontiers. So you desist them to be predatory publisher. Yeah. I had lots of. Evidence from stuff that they had published in the published an article about Chem trails in the sky Cam spiracy, THEO. Yeah, they published an article about that which they quickly retracted after I wrote a blog post about it. They published an article saying that doesn't cause aids. So I had lots of lots of solid evidence that they weren't really conducting valid period view. I mean, that's bad science. It's not necessarily making them predatory publish plenty of crap lanes up in good journals. But it gets gets retracted and publishing junk science is one of the criteria that used to evaluate publishers. I mean, you're if you submit an article to publisher thinking, it's a good publisher when they're publishing crap science poor science that is a type of predation against on us researchers. They don't want to be associated with junk science as space in full university of Colorado Dame where Jeffrey held a tenured faculty position would not call me on any research misconduct in.
