Say No to Predatory Journals

Dear MOA Members,

Predatory Journals are cropping up like mushrooms all across the faculty of Orthopaedics and Unfortunately most of these journals are being started from India. The hurry of getting a publication or just a submission certificate is making these journals a very lucrative place for submitting their research for young researchers, however through the medium of Journal of Trauma & Orthopaedic Surgery, we wish to request our members to refrain from submitting to such predatory Journals

These Journals can be easily identified by simple characters. They will send you mails soliciting your submissions and guaranteed publication within a week or short time. There will hardly be any review process and there will be a publication fees. These journals may have some good names on their editorial board, however many a times even these members do not know that they are on the editorial board. Submission to these journals may get you an easy publication but would not add to your academic credentials in long term.

Select a state journal or a journal from a recognized academic society for publication of your article. If you need more information please join the MOA Research cell on whatsapp by sending me a message on my number 9833110366. This forum is also meant to guide young researchers in improving their manuscript and advice them on good publication practices.
