The Faculty of Management Stand on so-called Predatory Publishers and Journals

The Faculty of Management of the University of Economics in Prague strongly condemns the dubious practices of the predatory publishers and refuses to publish in their journals or attend their conferences to artificially increase the publishing performance or the citation of individuals and the whole institution.

The Faculty of Management of the University of Economics in Prague recommends its academic staff to avoid any connection with so-called predatory publishers, magazines or organizers of conferences. We encourage the authors to choose carefully where they publish their scientific researches – not only with regard to the applicability of these outputs when assessing scientific results, but also, in particular, their own academic reputation and the reputation of their parent institution.
