This page used to have a link to the lists of so-called "predatory open access journals" on a website maintained by Jeffrey Beall.

This website, https://scholarlyoa.com/ still exists but its content has been removed without an explanation. Retraction Watch website has a page that includes a statement from the University of Colorado for the termination of this website.

One possible reason for the termination may be an attack on Mr. Beall's website that is maintained at the following site: http://scholarlyoa.net/

This issue is very important especially in view of the proliferation of "open access" publishers. But this website (IST) does not have a stand on this issue as we have not assessed the lists and the arguments of the sides involved in the controversy.
